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!

I'd think it more likely that they used Maya because of its Hebrew roots. (It derives from the Hebrew word for water, mayim.)

Hey guys my wife and I have been married for 15 years. For over five years I have been dealing with jealousy issues because of flirting and her having emotional type affairs with other men. I felt like my masculinity was in question and if I said the way she was acting bothered me, it seemed to make matters worse or I was accused of being controling. During this period I did state I wanted a divorce if the behavior was not going to end: texting men a night, leaving for the weekend without letting me know where she was going or not responding to messages. We do have a son and basically it's been him and I for the last year on the weekends. She disconnected completely from being a good wife and mother. In April she said she wanted a separation and I said no we need to get into marriage counseling. We did try that, but she was not very responsive and didn't give any effort. Afterward she was adamant about separation and divorce. I continued to say no and that we needed to save our family. She presented a separation agreement and I had to hire a lawyer. Because of the above behavior my lawyer suggested a private investigator. The investigator discovered my wife was having an affair with a close friend of the family who also is married with children. We know the extended families. I feel like I should tell this man's wife about what happened. This adultery has devastated me emotionally, I feel betrayed and I'm physically drained. I know my wife is passionate in terms of her sexuality, and I can't get the thought of them out of my head. It makes me question my own manhood, and I feel very inferior or that he must be a better lover or what ever. The problem is my wife pursued him. She would go to him and she lured him into this adultery. I felt this was coming for some time and could not stop it. She was not only lying to me but also to our son about what she was doing and where she was going. My family is important, my son loves her and as crazy as it sounds so do I. Can you respond with a course of action on how to proceed? I was still have a very huge place in my heart for her. so i searched for help online and I came across a website that suggested that Dr Ahmed can help solve marital problems, restore broken relationships and so on. So I felt I should give him a try. I contacted him and he told me what to do and i did it then he did a spell for me. 28 hours later, my wife came to me and apologized for the wrongs she did and promise never to do it again. Ever since then, everything has returned back to normal. I, my son and my wife are living together happily again.. All thanks to Dr Ahmed. as it is a place to resolve marriage/relationship issues, do you want to be sure if your spouse is being faithful to you or Do you want your Ex to come back to you Contact.: E-mail: Ahmedutimate@gmail.com or call/Whats-app: +2348160153829 save your crumbling home and change of grades its 100% safe. I suggest you contact him. He will not disappoint you.
