America Ferrera is one of the most respected actresses in Hollywood. She’s been in so many amazing films and has really grown up in front of our eyes.
She’s now a mother, actress, and activist who makes a huge impact. Now America is sharing a big announcement on Instagram! The Superstore star just revealed that her family is growing! On Tuesday evening, she shared the update that she and her husband, Ryan Piers Williams, are expecting baby No. 2.
The couple actually shared the happy news in identical Instagram posts, featuring a family photo. The couple already has one son, Sebastian “Baz” Piers Williams, whom they had in 2018.
Now they will be a family of four, and from the looks of things, they’re pretty excited. Their cute photo featured America’s already well-developed baby bump, letting fans know she’s quite far into her pregnancy, and their new addition will likely be here sooner rather than later.
America Ferrera is an incredible actress. She stars in the much-loved show Superstore and has appeared in all kinds of great films like the Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants movies, Real Women Have Curves, and many more. She’s proved herself over and over again as a major Hollywood talent. She first became a mom in May 2018, and now she’s growing her family.
America has kept super busy over the last few years. Her show Superstore has become a massive hit. But she also is an incredible activist. She champions all kinds of causes, from immigration reform to women’s rights. She also uses her social media platforms to speak out on so many issues that are close to her heart.
Only now America is using her social media platform to talk about something else — her new addition! She just posted on Instagram to announce that she and her husband, Ryan Piers Williams, are expecting. Ryan actually shared the same photo on his page, as well.
“Welcoming Baby #2 in 2020!” America joyfully wrote. “Happy New Year from our wild & growing bunch.” Ryan added, “So much to look forward to in 2020, but one thing in particular sticks out! Can’t wait to welcome another beautiful creature into this world. Happy New Years!!”
It was clear that one thing was definitely sticking out — America’s baby bump! While we don’t exactly know her estimated due date, it’s clear that it’s going to be soon. America is definitely well into her pregnancy. The couple obviously chose to keep the information to themselves until they felt good and ready to share it with the public.
America, 35, and Ryan, 38, got engaged back in 2010. The couple had already been together for several years. They married in 2011. In 2018, America told Health magazine about how much parenthood had changed her, as it tends to do!
“For so long, it’s been just the two of us, and we’ve had an amazing life together. I don’t know that either one of us could anticipate how much we love him and how it makes everything new again,” she said. “We’ve traveled to many wonderful places, and we’ve seen many things — and just getting to imagine that somewhere down the line everything that we’ve already done and seen, Baz will be seeing for the first time … it’s amazing.”
America seems like an absolutely amazing mom in addition to being a talented actress. But she also has a lot of other credits to her name, as well. She’s credited as being a cofounder of the Time’s Up movement, which came into focus in recent years and continues to make waves. America is a huge supporter of women’s rights and inspires others to share their stories and raise their voices.
It’s such happy news for the couple, and they’re obviously thrilled to be sharing it. The post received an instant outpouring of love and support from fans and other celebrities. Reese Witherspoon wrote, “Congratulations!!!! This is the most exciting news ✨❤️,” on the post. Jennifer Garner also shared some well-wishes.
The year 2020 is bound to be a busy year for America. We can’t wait to catch a glimpse of her new addition this year. We don’t know when her new baby will be born, but chances are, it’s going to be pretty soon, by the looks of things.
Congrats to America, Ryan, and soon-to-be big brother Sebastian!
