Ramirez on growing up in the Dominican Republic until the age of 10…

“It was an amazing time in my life. We didn’t have a lot of money, and there was nothing to do but let your imagination go wild. We did simple things, like climbing trees and playing in the river. That upbringing has helped as an actress, actually. And then there’s the part of me who’s just a Dominican chick from Washington Heights.”

 

Ramirez on returning to work after giving birth to her twins…

“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.”

 

Ramirez on getting back into shape after having twins…

“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.”

 

Ramirez on how her beauty routine has changed as a new mom…

“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.”
