Actress and singer Roselyn Sanchez said Thursday she will baptize her daughter, Sebella Rose, in her native Puerto Rico.

"Desperate because September 9 is coming. Crazy to do RS Triathlon For Life and for Sebella to go to Puerto Rico for the 1st time! And to baptize her! Happy!" said Sanchez via Twitter.

The artist will travel to Puerto Rico to participate in the third edition of the Triathlon for Life, a benefit organized by the San Jorge Foundation and the Casa Cuna of Puerto Rico.

Sebella Rose, the first child of Sanchez and actor Eric Winter, was born in January. The couple wed in November 2008 in San Juan.

The 38-year-old Sanchez became known to U.S. television viewers in 1996 as "Pilar Domingo," the first Latino continuing character on the long-running soap opera "As the World Turns."

From 2005-2009, Sanchez portrayed an FBI agent on the primetime drama "Without a Trace."

She made her singing debut in 2003 with the album "Borinqueña." The first single from the disc, "Amor Amor," garnered a Latin Grammy nomination for Best Music Video.

Sanchez is currently filming a 13-episode television series in Colombia for Fox Telecolombia. EFE
