Since its release in November, Encanto has taken the internet—and many of our living rooms—by a storm. The Disney movie has quickly become a favorite for both young children and their parents. It touches on important messages about family, teaches young kids why it’s good to be different—and has a very catchy soundtrack. Now, Stephanie Beatriz, the actress who played the movie’s main character Mirabel, is revealing she actually recorded one of the songs while in labor.

During an interview with Variety, Beatriz revealed she recorded the final version of “Waiting on a Miracle” while in labor. “I didn’t want to tell anybody at Disney because I didn’t want anyone to freak out, but I was already having some contractions when we were scheduled to record that day,” she told the outlet. “I was like ‘Well, fingers crossed I finish the song before [the baby] comes!’”

The movie’s director Byron Howard admitted he had no idea Beatriz was in labor. “We knew she was very, very, very, very ready to have that baby. But she did not tell us she was almost, almost ready,” he told the outlet.

She revealed she gave birth to her daughter Rosaline, who she welcomed in August 2022, the day after recording.

The Birth Announcement

The Brooklyn Nine-Nine actress announced the birth of her first child through Instagram on Sunday August 22, posting an image of herself next to a pink Nuna car seat holding her daughter. “BÉBÉ HAS ARRIVED in style (and more importantly SAFETY),” she wrote in the caption. “Her name is Rosaline: pronounced Roz-uh-line. 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.”

Beatrice and her husband Brad Hoss, who tied the knot in 2018, first shared their pregnancy news in June, expressing their desire to raise a child who fights for equality. “I think one of the best things you can do is raise a kid who understands that however a person chooses to shape their one glorious life is worthy of celebration," Beatriz told People at the time.
