America Ferrera has a lot to celebrate!
On Mother’s Day, the Superstore actress shared the exciting and special news that she welcomed her second baby with husband, Ryan Piers Williams.
The couple welcomed a baby girl earlier this week, and it marks their first daughter. The two are already parents to their one-year-old son, Sebastian “Baz” Piers Williams.
“LUCIA MARISOL WILLIAMS arrived on May 4th to give me my Mother’s Day hugs and kisses herself,” America shared on Instagram. “Mama, Dada & Big Brother are over the moon to welcome her bright light to our family.”
Ryan also took to social media to share his excitement over his little one.
“The most exquisite little creature graced us with her presence on May 4, 2020,” he expressed. “Please meet the newest member of our family, Lucia Marisol Williams. She came just in time for Mother’s Day. Everyone is healthy and happy!”
The proud parents also revealed they held a baby shower, which was put on by Eva Longoria and Elsa Collins. However, due to the Coronavirus pandemic, it wasn’t your typical party.
In fact, the baby shower was done as a way to help migrant families suffering from the COVID-19 outbreak.
“Our epic baby shower hosted by @evalongoria and @elsamariecollins might have been covid-cancelled but it didn’t stop us from collecting supplies for migrant families in Lucia’s name,” Ryan shared. “In lieu of baby gifts we partnered with @yeswecanwf and @thisisabouthumanity to send essential supplies to mothers and children waiting for asylum in Mexico.”
He added, “Thank you to all our family and friends who donated. Please enjoy this short video of the supplies reaching the families. If you’d like to make a donation to migrant families in Lucia’s name.”
Just last month, America shared a powerful message to “pregnant mamas” struggling during these uncertain times.
“As this baby grows inside and I attempt to breathe through the fears and unknowns of this time, I am thinking of all you other mamas bringing new life into this world right now,” she wrote on Instagram.
“And also all of the women across generations and centuries and borders who have and are currently birthing new life in the midst of so many extraordinary and daunting circumstances,” she continued. “Life is a miracle, and mamas make it possible through their strength and power.”
The actress announced she was pregnant with her second baby on New Years’ Eve. And now, her new addition to the family has arrived!
