Throughout his career, Valencia has been involved in multiple projects. He wrote and directed the 2003 short Moment to Moment and the 2017 mini-series LaGolda.
Some of his other works are El Cuarto (2004), The Rising Tide Documentary (2008), and Brandi Chastain: A Tribute to a Champion (2010).
On top of the works mentioned above, which he wrote for and directed, Valencia has also dabbled in acting and producing.
They Have a Daughter
Reyes and her husband have a daughter together. The pair welcomed their only child, daughter Leila Rey Valencia, on November 27, 2009, who weighed in at 6 lbs., 7 oz and measured 19 inches long.
The actress had first announced she was pregnant back in June 2009. She also got candid about many things, including her fear of babies.
“I’ve never been a baby person,” she said. “Babies always scared me. I’ve always been afraid to drop them or hurt them.”
Reyes also shared that after becoming pregnant, her outlook on life changed. “As I feel this life growing and moving inside of me, all of a sudden, everything else is not as important.”
She also revealed the pregnancy had changed her lifestyle in several ways. For one, Reyes, who had never been a napper, started getting several hours of shut-eye during the day.
Aside from talking about how her life had changed after getting pregnant, Reyes also shared a little about her expectations for her daughter.
“I hope that she has perspective, a good sense of humor, patience, perseverance, and that she really just hangs in there to do what she’s passionate about,” she said. “And has a dazzling smile like her mom!”
