America Ferrerra on picking her baby's name and the 'magic' in the Sisterhood jeans

America Ferrera has no plans on giving her baby a landmark name. The mommy-to-be made her first television appearance, since announcing that she is expecting her first child and shared her idea of an appropriate name. “I’m going to go with no,” she quipped when asked by Stephen Colbert if her baby will be named after a piece of land. “I love my name now, but growing up with the name America is not easy. I don’t want to put that on my child because I know what it feels like.”

The Superstore star joked: “I’m going to go with something that sounds like a name." The 33-year-old and her husband Ryan Piers Williams shared the news that they will become parents on New Year’s Eve with a sweet Instagram post. Prior, the couple hosted a get together with friends where Ryan tried his best to turn the apartment into a nightclub with a smoke machine. “I was stone cold sober,” America said of her husband’s gesture. “So it felt like a junior high party.”
