Talk about getting the job done!
“Encanto” actor Stephanie Beatriz has revealed that she recorded “Waiting on a Miracle” for the Disney movie while in labour with her first child.
The 41-year-old actress, who voiced and sung as the main character Mirable in the film, gave birth to her first child, Rosaline, the following day.
“I didn’t want to tell anybody at Disney because I didn’t want anyone to freak out,” she told Variety .
“But I was already having some contractions when we were scheduled to record that day. I was like ‘Well, fingers crossed I finish the song before [the baby] comes!’”
Director Byron Howard was aware of Stephanie's pregnancy but had no idea during the recording how close she was to giving birth.
The 'Brooklyn Nine-Nine' actress welcomed her baby last August, and shared on Instagram how she was in "awe" of her beautiful daughter.
"Her name is Rosaline: pronounced Roz-uh-line," she said.
"I'm very very in awe of the entire experience of having a kiddo. it is INCREDIBLE and HARD AF and BEAUTIFUL and EMOTIONAL, and I can't remember ever being this amazed and feeling so overwhelmingly full of gratitude.
"Roz, you are so cool."
