The Justice League just got a little bigger (well, kind of), as Wonder Woman is officially a second-time mom! We're sending a huge congratulations to actress Gal Gadot, who recently gave birth to her second child with husband Yaron Versano. And, of course, this special little girl has a very sweet and pretty powerful name.


The 31-year-old took to Instagram on March 20 to share a heartwarming family photo of her and Yaron's 5-year-old daughter, Alma, looking at her baby sister -- whose name is Maya. 

"And then we were four ... She is here, Maya," the mom captioned the sweet photo. "I feel so complete blessed and thankful for all the Wonders in my life."

Aww. So precious.

"Wonders." We see what you did there, Gal.


BabyNameWizard.com notes that Maya has roots in Indian mythology, as it's the name of the goddess Devi. The variant Maia also happens to be the name of the Greek fertility goddess -- so this baby is pretty much set to be a badass.

Plus, it doesn't hurt that her mom is Wonder Woman. (Can you imagine show-and-tell day?)

As a fan of superheroes, girl power, and kicking ass, I'm so excited for Gal and her family. I can only imagine how awesome it will be for Alma and Maya to grow up knowing they have the power to change the world.

Gal made both my husband and me shout at the screen when she came out and saved Batman's ass in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. (We can't wait for the Wonder Woman movie coming out in June!)  

Everything about her portrayal of Wonder Woman embodies strength, courage, and a willingness to stare adversity in the face before beating it down with her mighty sword and Lasso of Truth.

On top of that, Wonder Woman is a mom, which makes her even more amazing. Because, as we all know, every mother is a superhero in her own right that should never be messed with.

Congrats again, Gal!
