Babies are a frequent topic of conversation among the cast of Ugly Betty. With costar Rebecca Romijn expecting twins and executive producer Salma Hayek a mother to 11-month-old daughter Valentina, cast member Ana Ortiz says she's feeling the pressure to have a child of her own.
"I really am!" she told PEOPLE Monday at the show's season-three premiere party at Highbar in New York City. "It's definitely something that my husband [musician Noah Lebenzon] and I talk about all the time."
Ortiz, 37, even says she's gotten the most encouragement to start a family from her costar America Ferrera.

When it came to telling her TV colleagues that she and husband Jerry O'Connell would be having twins, Ugly Betty's Rebecca Romijn handled the announcement quietly before the news went public.
Not that their reactions were subdued. "[We're] so excited," said Betty star America Ferrera at Monday's New York City premiere of her movie Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants 2.
"I'm so happy for them," gushed Ferrera, 24. "They're going to be the best parents. I don't think there could be a more wonderful father to girls."

He may be used to plot twists on Ugly Betty, but actor David Blue experienced his own unexpected turn of events on Friday when he got mugged leaving a cast party in L.A.
"It was amazing that only 10 feet away there was a window of people drinking and having a good time," Blue tells PEOPLE about being held at gunpoint. "They got my house keys, too, so the past weekend felt a little creepy. But I'm good. I'm really lucky."
After posting a detailed account of the incident on his personal MySpace page, the actor, who plays photographer Cliff on the show, was flooded with supportive messages from concerned friends and co-workers.
