NCIS Star Wilmer Valderrama's Baby Announcement Is Like A Fast And Furious Poster, And I Can't Look Away

Wilmer Valderrama is going to be a dad! Just shy of a year after getting engaged to fiancee Amanda Pacheco, the NCIS star and his life partner teamed up on social media to share the news with their fanbases that they are becoming parents. It wasn’t just a regular old baby announcement either. In fact, they went all out and signed on for a professional photography shoot that pretty much made their pregnancy announcement look like a Fast and Furious movie poster. Really. It would fit right in next to the Dune wall art and Wonder Woman 1984 cutouts at your local theater.

All this announcement would need is a little bit of Vin Diesel and it would totally make sense in the Fast and Furious universe. Am I wrong? Is this not the vibe you’re also getting when you look at this unique baby announcement?

Regardless, Wilmer Valderrama is a noted car guy, and even bought the 1969 Oldsmobile Vista Cruiser that the gang drove around in during That ‘70s Show after the show officially ended. He also owns several other cars, has shared a Lamborghini Murcielago LP640 on social, and has been spotted in vehicles from brands such as Aston Martin and Tesla, so clearly there’s a passion for automobiles on his end. I suppose it makes sense that his baby announcement would incorporate one of his other loves.

Michael Muller, who is credited by Wilder Valderrama for taking the photographs for the happy couple, also shared a message on his own Instagram congratulating Wilmer Valderrama and Amanda Pacheco on their impending arrival.

Baby time. You two are going to be amazing loving parents. Honor[ed] to document these special days.

Wilmer Valderrama and Amanda Pacheco have been together since 2019 and were first connected with one another in the spring of that year. By January of 2020 they were engaged and are now welcoming a baby. They are among many celebrities who have announced pregnancies during this pandemic year, including Jenny Slate, Christina Milian, Lauren Bushnell, Mike ‘The Situation’ Sorrentino and Lauren Pesce, Henry Golding and Liv Lo--and these are only the more recent announcements.

Over the course of his long career Wilmer Valderrama has been connected to a lot of famous names. He notably dated singer Demi Lovato from 2012-2016, and prior to that had been connected with the likes of Mandy Moore and even Lindsay Lohan. His TV career has been equally well-connected, as he's taken notable roles in That '70s Show, Netflix's The Ranch, Grey's Anatomy, Minority Report, Raising Hope and, of course, NCIS, where he stars as Nick Torres. New episodes of the long-running CBS drama air on Tuesdays at 8 p.m. ET, though we'll be sure to let you know if the actor ever actually hops to the big screen for a Fast outing, since we now know he'd fit right in on the poster.
