Wilmer Valderrama’s Daughter’s ‘Unique’ Name Has a Special Meaning

However, Valderrama doesn’t seem to mind the unexpected curveball 2020 threw. In fact, it worked out pretty well for him. That’s because he’s now a proud father to a baby girl. He and his fiancée gave their daughter an uncommon name, and the inspiration behind it is also unique.

Wilmer Valderrama came to fame as a young actor on That ’70s Show. He has since worked on many projects and is now starring in NCIS. But like many celebrities and ordinary people alike, his life has seen changes since the pandemic.

According to United Talent, Wilmer Valderrama was born in Miami. But when he was 3, his family moved to Venezuela. And when they returned to the States 10 years later, he didn’t speak English. However, he quickly caught up to his peers, and in 1998, he shot to fame as Fez, an exchange student on the popular sitcom That ’70s Show. The series ran until 2006, and it established him as an actor.

Valderrama voiced the title character on the Disney animated TV series Handy Manny and the prince in the 2018 animated film Charming. He’s appeared on numerous TV shows, including The Ranch, Grey’s Anatomy, and From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series. He’s also worked as a producer. And since 2016, Valderrama has starred in the TV drama NCIS alongside Mark Harmon. But although the long-running series is successful, it’s not the only good thing in his life these days.

Of course, that was also the first day of 2020, and soon the pandemic would strike. The couple decided not to get married that year. But they embarked on another important journey together. 

Entertainment reported that in April 2019, Valderrama was seen with a divemaster and model, Amanda Pacheco. The two dated for only eight months before he proposed in a romantic beach setting on New Year’s Day. — Wilmer Valderrama (@WValderrama) February 22, 2021
