America Ferrera's BFF Just Threw Her The Best Baby Shower She Could Ever Ask For
Embracing motherhood has never been this fun!
No poopie diaper games here. Just dancing, drinking (water for me ??), and some of the people we love to celebrate the little human we can’t wait to meet. @beautyessexla was a gorgeous place to celebrate (????not being paid to say that). And get you an amazing friend like @elsamariecollins who always shows up for you and throws the best parties!
The 33-year-old actress and director is expecting her first child this summer and recently celebrated the milestone with close family and the best of friends she could ever ask for—while looking absolutely blooming.
The party held at the super posh events space Beauty & Essex in Los Angeles was organized by gal pal Elsa Marie Collins, and while it didn't have any typical baby shower games, it did have America's Superstore and Ugly Betty cast mates joining in on the happiness. The intimate party saw lots of back and forth jokes shared among guests and even a comedic "roast" held as the main event.
America's on-screen Ugly Betty siblings Ana Ortiz and Mark Indelicato were in attendance, while Ben Feldman, Kelly Stables, Nichole Bloom, Colton Dunn, Kaliko Kauahi, Nico Santos, and Lauren Ash represented her Superstore family.
It's one of the rare occasions the different casts have met up outside of work and Hollywood events, proving just how much of a dear friend America is to them. The only ladies missing from the joyous occasion were actresses Blake Lively, Alexis Bledel, and Ambler Tamblyn, America's "sisters" from romance drama hit Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants, although they did make it a point to congratulate America on her pregnancy in person earlier this year.
America's husband, director Ryan Piers William, was snapped sharing silly moments with his wife of almost seven years, clearly showing how excited he is to become a father. The pair announced their pregnancy on New Year's Eve with a cute Instagram post showing America holding a baby onesie with the words, Mas Besos por favor (more kisses please), but according to Lauren Ash, she and Ben Feldman correctly guessed that America was expecting weeks before she broke the news.
"We were on set and randomly she said, 'I want pancakes so bad!' And Ben and Colton [Dunn] were like, 'Uh oh! Somebody's pregnant!' and she was like, 'Shut up! No I'm not!' and she hit Colton. In that moment, I just locked eyes with her and I just knew she was pregnant," shared Lauren in an interview with Entertainment Tonight.
Lauren, who also writes episodes for Superstore, further revealed that she'll have to do a bit of adjusting for America's parts now that she's expecting. Overall, fans will be delighted to know that America will be on the show until she's due.
To summarize the day's events, America posted a series of photos on Instagram and captioned them with "No poopie diaper games here. Just dancing, drinking (water for me ??), and some of the people we love to celebrate the little human we can’t wait to meet. @beautyessexla was a gorgeous place to celebrate (????not being paid to say that). And get you an amazing friend like@elsamariecollins who always shows up for you and throws the best parties!"
Now that we can be excited for the baby-on-the-way along with America, the next thing we'd love to know is if we're expecting a boy or a girl! America already knows, but is keeping it a secret.
We'll all find out soon anyway. For now, we wish a America and Ryan a big congratulations!
