Marcela Valladolid Is Pregnant With Second Child

Photo - Food Network
Food Network's Marcela Valladolid (The Kitchen/Mexican Made Easy) announced last week on Instagram and Facebook that she is expecting another child.  She posted a picture of her son Fausto wearing a shirt that said, "Keep calm I'm going to be a big brother."

After a lot of people congratulating her on Facebook, she posted the following:
"Fau, Philip and myself have read and appreciate every single comment and the well-wishes sent our way. Just about done with the first trimester, and just like with my first little warrior, the nausea has been kind of wicked but it's a small price to pay for this much awaited blessing. Thank you so much for the kind words Facebook familia... I promise to keep you posted! XO PS Fau is incapable of being in photos these days without making a funny face. Nutso, just like his momma..."

The Philip in that message is Philip Button who works at the William Morris Endeavor Entertainment Agency.

This is probably the first Food Network pregnancy is quite some time.  Many people relate Food Network's The Kitchen to ABC's The Chew, and now this will give them more similarities as The Chew's Daphne Oz just had a baby.  The Kitchen is a taped show rather than a live show, so we will have to see if they work Marcela's pregnancy into the show or if they try to tape around it.

You may remember last year, Marcela was all over the British tabloids for an alleged affair with co-judge Paul Hollywood on The American Baking Competition.  It seems that both have moved on with Marcela being pregnant, and Paul admitting to the affair and getting back together with his wife.

  1. Two children by two different fathers, neither of whom she's bothered to marry. I'd like to think I'm not a prude, but this is just wrong.

  2. I don't watch The Kitchen and have never heard of her, but I also think hers is the first FN pregnancy in a while. Cat Cora's was the last as far as I know.

  3. Getting married means nothing if you just get divorced shortly after anyway.

  4. Aarti Sequeira is a relatively new mother, but she didn't make any on-air appearances while pregnant. She also has what appears to be a very stable marriage.

  5. I thought Cat Cora's wife was the one carrying the baby for them?

  6. Cat and Jennifer were pregnant at the same time w/babies from same donor sperm but the other woman's egg. The other 2 kids appear to have been carried by Jennifer, 1 with Cat's egg and the other with eggs from both women so they wouldn't know who the bio mom was. Same donor sperm each time.

  8. I didn't even realize she'd had a baby! Thanks for that info. Her cookbook just came out and I've seen great reviews.

  9. Her charity on Superstar Sabotage is for post-partum depression, which she evidently experienced herself.

    ReplyDelete
  10. That's a tough thing to deal with. Glad she's supporting a charity that helps people with post-partum depression. Her little girl is just adorable! She has lots of photos on her FB page and I had to check it out.

  11. Marcela was Hollywood bound. Now she is a cute as a Button cookin a bun in the oven!

  12. She was married to her sons father.

  13. Was this on the FN forums?
    I just checked June's FB page, since she invited everyone over there in one of her comments above, and 6 hours ago she posted one of the memes that seem to sprout fresh every 2 minutes on FB. 19 hours ago she posted about how awful it is to have to give her son morphine. (I agree totally with that, BTW. My mom was on it when she was on hospice at our home and while it gives relief, it's pretty awful stuff.)
    Because of these two things I wonder if that info is correct. Something could certainly have happened in the last 6 hours, but it seems as if it got onto the FN forums really quickly, if he did pass. He certainly had a tough life and I hope he rests in peace when he does leave this earth. I cannot imagine the hell it must be to have a terminally ill child.

    If that info is accurate, that is really a tragedy. That child even though he was suffering seemed to be full of love and joy. He had a really nice smile. May he rest in peace.

    Lincoln once said that the newspapers (the media of the day) were reliable - they lie and re-lie so they are always reliable. Lincoln was shrewd and funny man alright.

    another valid point - thanks for posting

    thanks for your thoughts, it is easy to become cynical and bitter if all one does is go by shows on TV and the internet. Perhaps most people aren't as bad as the media makes out.

    why does the media continue to celebrate pregnatization? Doesn't everyone know that we have a major overpopulation problem in the world. We don't see it in the west because our military power and economic power allows us to use 25% of the planet's resources (about 45% if you count Europe) but sooner or later, the west will not be able to hold out against the hungry and angry hordes that will be charging our gates.

  20. You can edit, you know.

  21. It shows how people are going to say what they need to get on TV! They obviously were not being truthful. This certainly makes me lose sympathy for them (with the exception of their son).

    ReplyDelete
  22. It was put on TV for public consumption, which made it anyone's business that watched the show, IMO.

    ReplyDelete
  23. The poster "someone who has a heart" must be the poster that is known as an emoticon " :)" and the others posters that tell people to get a life. It's funny how those little things give you away. I think you should vary your put downs a little more.

    ReplyDelete
  24. It's not accurate. June posted a photo of her son and other kids decorating pumpkins today. https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10205458535241836&set=pcb.10205458536441866&type=1&theater

  25. It was Thumper in Bambi who said he was told: "If you don't have anything nice to say, don't say nuthin' at all."

    However, before that, Alice Roosevelt said, "If you don't have anything nice to say, come over and sit by me."

  26. Don't feed the Mitt Zombie troll. I'm not sure where the commenters these days are finding this site from but more and more, it seems like they have nothing substantive to contribute.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Or maybe it's an opportunity to get an inside peek at the making of some reality television sausage. Are you really that daft that you can't see why someone might jump at the chance? Perhaps you were born without a pilot light, period.

  28. I can tell y'all that this comments on this one are going to be interesting. It's a combined bar/restaurant/motorcycle customization shop. The back half of the building is the motorcycle shop. The before decor is, obviously, motorcycles. The menu is small and most people like it, but complain about the service. The place just opened in 11/13!

    Oh, that is such a "sweet" picture of him giving the bird. Sheesh, I know it's facebook but come on, do people have to post someone giving the finger?

    ReplyDelete
  30. "Someone who has a heart" and the other similar posters write the same way June does on her Facebook page, same lack of punctuation and grammar.

    ReplyDelete
  31. That pic was just obnoxious considering the child is 10 and his mother most likely posted it. It gives a real peek into the home life there.

    ReplyDelete
  32. That pic.....not exactly a good way to promote your restaurant. When you act like trash....it puts your business in a bad light. This is a good way to turn people off from patronizing the restaurant.

  33. "Feminazis"? I think you mistyped the URL for RedState.

  34. I hope you'll check in with some scoop if you make the volunteer cut!

    ReplyDelete
  35. We missed the cut. They had more volunteers than they needed, which was great, but I am bummed! I called them again today to see if by chance a space opened up for dinner tomorrow night (10/22) at the grand re-opening, but of course they're full.

    ReplyDelete
  36. I don't want nor need to see something like that. I would rather go to a museum or read a good book, but knock yourself out and follow the rest of the mindless herd.

  37. DO you know what jealous means?

  38. Actually I had a friend who had a son die from Leukemia and she never used it as an excuse to act like a biatch

    A strange mix of Italian and Portuguese.
    Food is too expensive for the lower income Wilbraham area. The same dishes are usually better and cheaper in Fall River/New Bedford area.
    The decor is just weird, and the pictures are creepy.

  40. Are you the same Mama June from Honey BooBoo?
    You act the same and are close to the same weight.

    ReplyDelete
  41. Bill, I wonder if the volunteers have to sign waivers releasing RI and the Food Network from liability if they get hurt. I'm positive they do, and it's a bum deal for them, I think

    ReplyDelete
  42. Good insight, Bill. He definitely should sell--so many of the other owners have :)

  43. The wife is not a nag...her husband is a dick.
    It is a sad mess.

    ReplyDelete
  44. One jerk defending another....smh You are not aware of the history, only what the show presents and your opinion of it. So, your ignorance is understandable. But, wrong.

    ReplyDelete
  45. Congrats Marcela! To all those people that want to talk too much: he who is without sin cast the first stone! So what she has two kids for different fathers what skeletons do you have in your closet. Now back to Marsala I wish you nothing but the best I send you and yours lots of blessings. ¡¡¡Muchas felicidades!!! Que ¡Dios te bendiga con muchos mas!

    ReplyDelete
  46. I don't care much for her, she's not as down to earth as other personalities. . Having said that, I wish her nothing but happiness. I wish Food Network gave Paula Deen as much leeway as they have with Marcela.

    ReplyDelete
  47. Actually she was married, twice, to the father of her first son. She clearly tried the traditional thing and it simply didn't work. Maybe not judging others might be something you wanna work on Ladyirish317. Just a thought.

    ReplyDelete
  48. What I don't understand is that since Marcela has announced she's pregnant, she doesn't eat anything on The Kitchen. We never see her eating anything. Every once in a while she'll drink something (non-alcoholic). Is she having a problem pregnancy, or is the just watching everything that she eats. It's kind of annoying, esp when everyone on the show really chows down on everything they make.

    ReplyDelete
  49. Over Marcela! The show will be better if she does not return . No more hearing "cheelays" and "encheelahdas" !! She is annoying! Love everyone else :)

    ReplyDelete
  50. Paula Deen used the "N" word....Marcela is not the first celebrity to have a child before marriage.....HUGE difference between having a child and being a racist!

    ReplyDelete
  51. So the correct pronunciation of chiles and enchiladas bothers you?...

    ReplyDelete
  52. I agree. It's a different world out there. No morals, commitment, family, at all anymore.
