In a holiday week filled with various celebrations, America Ferrera had one more thing to cheer for: she’s going to be a mom! The Superstore actress took to Instagram on New Year's Eve to proudly tell the world that she and her husband Ryan Piers Williams, who also posted the news, are expecting their first child together in the coming year. “We’re welcoming one more face to kiss in 2018!” the 33-year-old wrote alongside an adorable photo of her and Ryan holding up a baby onesie. "Wishing you #MásBesos in the New Year! #babybesos #HappyNewYear."

On his own Instagram account, dad-to-be Ryan wrote: "Making room for new and beautiful things to come in 2018!" With their exciting annoucements both the actress and her writer-director man shared the same sweet photo of themselves posing in 2018 New Year's Eve glasses. In the picture, the former Ugly Betty star holds up a tiny grey baby onesie, which has the words: "Más besos (por favor)" (translation: more kisses please) written on it. She matches the phrase quiet nicely, giving a kissy face to the camera.

Over the summer, America and Ryan celebrated being together for 12 years with a gorgeous trip to Iceland in June. "12 years of this..." America wrote alongside a cute video of the couple blowing dandelions in a picturesque setting. The happy pair first met because of a film project. Ryan cast America in a student film he was making while at the University of Southern California. They got engaged in June of 2010 and later married in 2011 with an intimate ceremony.
