Alinne Moraes, one of the most respected and in-demand telenovela actresses in Brazil recently gave birth to her first child Peter, with filmmaker boyfriend Mauro Lima in Rio de Janeiro. She posted a picture of the hand of her son on Instagram and other than her partner confirming they are parents did not disclose any further information. However, prior to the birth in an interview for Mother's Day "RG" magazine the attractive actress stated her desire only to spend time with her son and not work.
This comment she made accompanied with laughs but it does suggest that this talented actress, considered one of the hardest working actresses in Brazil might actually take an extended period of time away from acting. For many within the entertainment industry it will be very different to not see her on television as she has been a consistent presence on various telenovelas for the past 12 years since she stopped modelling and focused on acting full time at the age of 19 years.
One of the interesting topics that have not been discussed is whether she will consider making a move behind the camera or would she potentially look to make contacts abroad in the United States and act in Hollywood. Her status as a telenovela star in Brazil is secure as she is an actress who brings exceptional ratings and thus there is no real fear of being unemployed as an actress in Brazil.
However, her time with her new son represents probably the first time in over a decade when she could actually consider investigating and meeting with filmmakers about potentially acting in a Hollywood movie and with her immense popularity in Brazil she could make it a movie that Brazilians would watch just because of her presence.
She has brought a healthy new life into the world and it would not surprise entertainment insiders if she decided to 'spice' up her career by acting in a Hollywood movie once she becomes accustomed to being a 'new' mother and she chooses to return to working in front of the cameras.
Alinne Moraes loves challenges and Hollywood would present a great work challenge for this talented actress. There is no indication that she will take this route but also there is no indication that she will not.
