America donned a chic form-fitting floral dress for the joyous occasion and was all smiles as she posed with pictures featuring the baby’s grandparents, aunts and uncles. The 33-year-old also captured memories with her on-screen family including, Superstore’s Ben Feldman, Kelly Stables and Nico Santos in addition to her former Ugly Betty co-stars, Mark Indelicato and Ana Ortiz.
American and Ryan, who have been married since 2011, kicked off the new year with their baby announcement. "We’re welcoming one more face to kiss in 2018!” she wrote alongside an adorable photo of her and Ryan holding up a baby onesie. "Wishing you #MásBesos in the New Year! #babybesos #HappyNewYear." As far as the baby’s name goes, the Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants actress is certain that he or she won’t have to deal with a unique moniker like hers.

"I’m going to go with no,” America told Stephen Colbert in January. “I love my name now, but growing up with the name America’s not easy, and I don’t want to put that on my child, because I know what that feels like. So, I’m going to go with something that’s more like a name.”
