America Ferrera Shared a New Pregnancy Photo with Encouraging Words for "Pregnant Mamas"
"Hang in there, pregnant mamas! We got this."
America Ferrera took some time out of her day to express solidarity with all the mothers around the world on Tuesday with a snap of her growing belly
The actress, seen in a black T-shirt and gray sweats while cradling her expanding stomach, is glowing in her Instagram snap. She paired the photo with a positive message as shunted she was thinking of "other mamas bringing new life into this world right now."
"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.
"And also of all 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," Ferrera continued. "Life is a miracle, and mamas make it possible through their strength and power." She concluded with an encouraging "Hang in there, pregnant mamas! We got this."
Ferrera is expecting her second child with husband Ryan Piers Williams. They're currently raising son Sebastian, who's about to turn 2 years old in May. News of the couple's second child came on New Year's Eve, when Ferrera shared a photo of Williams and little Sebastian gazing at her belly in a series of snaps.
"Welcoming Baby #2 in 2020! Happy New Year from our wild & growing bunch," she wrote at the time.
It's a difficut and rather uncertain time for all of us as the current novel coronavirus pandemic rages on. But Ferrera remains positive and is sending out that energy to the other mothers and mothers-to-be in the world, and that's something we can all appreciate.
