America Ferrera is now a mom of two. The Superstore actress announced the birth of her daughter via social media. The little girl arrived on May 4, just in time for Mother’s Day.

“🌟LUCIA MARISOL WILLIAMS 🌟arrived on May 4th to give me my Mother’s Day hugs and kisses herself. Mama, Dada & Big Brother are over the moon to welcome her bright light to our family,” Ferrera posted on Instagram along with a sweet photo of her newborn daughter’s little hand.

Ferrera and husband Ryan Williams also have a son, Sebastian, who was born in May 2018.

Since the couple wasn’t able to throw a baby shower due to the coronavirus pandemic they asked friends to donate to the Yes We Can World Foundation which helps deliver essential supplies to migrant children on the U.S.-Mexico border. In her posts she implored friends and family, “Dear friends, if you’re considering sending Lucia a gift, please donate to @yeswecanwf in her name. Or make a donation today in honor of the Moms you love! Visit for more info.”
