America Ferrera is having the happiest of birthdays! The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants star and mommy-to-be turned 34 on Wednesday, April 18, and shared her precious moments with fans. America took to her Instagram to post a Boomerang video of her bed full of the birthday balloons her husband Ryan Piers Morgan surprised her with. “I’m just trying to get to my HOT 80’s like Maya Angelou told me to! But for now, I’m grateful for the 34 years of getting to know myself,” the message read. “I appreciate the opportunity to come closer to the best version of me through my friends, my family, my community, my loves, my creativity, the heartbreaks and the challenges.”

"Happy birthday to this force of nature, my best girl America Ferrera. (Also two other best girls pictured!) I may not know how to draw hearts and Blake may not know how to be chill in a photo booth and Alexis may think we’re all nuts but we know a damn fierce, kind, compassionate, loyal friend when we see one. And you are all of those things, America. We love you so much. We can’t wait for us to have a baby together soon. #SorryRyan #Sisters #ButAlsoFathers #PaternityTest."
