Ugly Betty star America Ferrera is thinking about all the other pregnant mamas right now.
Ferrera, 35, recently shared a baby bump update on her Instagram account to send out an empowering message to all other mothers who are currently carrying new life into this world.
The photo, which appears to have a vintage filter, shows Ferrera in a black shirt with gray sweats while holding her growing belly.

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. 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. Life is a miracle, and mamas make it possible through their strength and power. Hang in there pregnant mamas! We got this. ???? by @ryanpierswilliams (aka dada, aka quarantine partner)
Expressing feelings of anxieties and fears first, she said that her thoughts go out to other moms who are also probably feeling the same way since the worldwide COVID-19 breakout.
“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.
She also addressed all the women “across generations and centuries and borders who have and are currently birthing new life” during this time of crisis.
According to her, this time around is filled with so many “extraordinary and daunting circumstances.”
Any pregnant woman will be worried about what is ahead. However, Ferrera chose to remind her fellow mamas with some positive messages.
“Life is a miracle, and mamas make it possible through their strength and power,” she wrote.
She then finished her message with an encouraging “Hang in there, pregnant mamas! We got this.”
Ferrera receives positive feedback
The Superstore actress, who has 1 million followers, received replies on the comments sections. Many of them are also pregnant and have thanked Ferrera for her encouraging message.
She also received some support from fellow celebrities who sent her well wishes for her upcoming delivery.
Chris Gorham of Netflix’s Insatiable commented: “You got this. Thank you for sending that important message, amiga.”
Natalie Portman also sent her a reply: “Love you and that cute belly!!! Can’t wait to meet your new human!”
Ferrera’s second child
The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants alum is currently expecting her second child with husband Ryan Piers Williams. Their first child, Sebastian, is turning two years old.
Ferrera first shared the world about her second pregnancy on New Year’s Eve through a family photo with the caption “Welcoming Baby #2 in 2020! Happy New Year from our wild & growing bunch.”
In an interview with Access last February, the soon-to-be mother of two said that having another baby on the way is surely going to make things even more complicated. But she said that having children “all feels so much more important.”
“I feel like being a mother has energized me and has focused me,” Ferrera stated.
