Forget desperate measures, Desperate times apparently call for space in the maternity wards.

For the second time in a week, a Desperate Housewives leading man has become a father, with Ricardo Chavira and wife Marcea Dietzel welcoming daughter Belen Elysabeth Chavira in San Antonio Monday.

The stork delivery came just three days after Kyle MacLachlan welcomed a son, Callum, in Los Angeles.

According to Entertainment Tonight, Chavira's little leading lady was born at 5:59 p.m. and tipped the scales at 7 pounds, 12 ounces.

It's the second child overall for the duo, who also has a 5-year-old son, Tomas.

While the couple have been together for some time, they only tied the knot last year in an ultra low-key wedding at their Texas home, wearing pajamas to the ceremony and going to their son's soccer game in lieu of a reception.
