Dania Ramirez talks twins and work in the Holiday 2014 issue of Glam Belleza Latina. She is a Dominican American TV and film actress from Heroes and Devious Maids. She has also been seen in The Sopranos and X Men. She is married to director John Amos Beverly
She has discussed her transition back to work after giving birth to her twin babies-
“I began working again about two and a half weeks after I had them. Devious Maids went back to filming sooner than planned. When I got the news, I was in the hospital just crying, overwhelmed. But now I think it was really good for me. I didn’t have time to plan anything. It allowed me to be in the moment.”
Obviously, the quick turnaround required Dania to drop her pregnancy weight almost instantly-
“My character was not pregnant, so I had to make sure that I started looking close to how I did before the pregnancy. Maybe it’s because I played sports my whole life, but I’m used to following a schedule as far as my eating habits…. I stuck with mostly fruits and vegetables right after I gave birth. I wanted to get accustomed to eating really healthfully and to having smaller portions throughout the day. Also, I like to feel healthy. I know that when I’m looking better and I’m eating right, I also feel better.”
And now that she’s a new mom, Ms. Ramirez has trimmed down her daily beauty routine.
“I have less time, but certain things remain the same. For instance, I still always take my makeup off, no matter how tired I am. The babies are teething and waking up at night, so I use my MAC wipes as a shortcut. In the mornings I try to find time to use my Clarisonic brush. Being able to really clean my pores has changed my skin completely…. I used to take the time to contour my skin perfectly, but now I just even it out quickly with foundation and then add a little bronzer on my cheeks.”
