Superstore star and second-time mom-to-be America Ferrerais still working hard, promoting her projects and looking fierce while doing it.
The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants star looked glam in a bump hugging pencil dress, hoops, sharp patent leather heels and a sleek updo while sitting on a panel with co-stars and creators at Netflix in a program produced by the National Association of Latino Independent Producers (NALIP) to promote one of her latest project, Gentefied.
What started as a series of web shorts about a family-owned taco stand that faced relocation due to gentrification has turned to a Netflix series that premieres this upcoming February 21 and starring Ferrera.
Just last month, Ferrera was in Utah at the Sundance Festival attending The Latinx House And Netflix Host Their Joint Kick-off Party on January 24, 2020 in Park City, Utah.
And before that, she and The Black Panther and The Walking Dead’s Danai Gurira were announcing the nominees for the Screen Actors’ Guild awards before getting on stage to present one of the awards during the actual show later.
Actress America Ferrera and husband Ryan Piers Williams, 37, are first time parents. The couple welcomed their first child, a healthy baby boy.
The Superstore actress shared a precious photo of her baby boy’s feet captioning the pic, “When 2 becomes 3…Welcome, Sebastian Piers Williams-aka Baz! Mom, Dad, and Baby are happy, healthy, and totally in love!”
The couple announced that they were starting a family of their own on New Year’s Eve, ending 2017 with a bang. The 34-year-old actress went to her social media via Instagram posting a picture of she and her hubby holding up a onesie in the photo op.
The stars came out tonight for the 2018 Golden Globes Awards.
In solidarity with the “Me Too” movement which involves women (and men) coming forward with sexual assault and harassment allegations, almost all of the women attended the show in black.
That movement spawned a “Time’s Up” initiative where celebrities have vowed to take up the charge of women, like the average worker, who may not have the same resources as wealthy and influential Celebs.
The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants alum made a New Year’s-themed baby announcement on Sunday, December 31 by posting a super cute photo of herself with her hubby, actor Ryan Piers Williams.
“Mas besos (por favor).” she captioned with the couple wearing shimmery “2018” glasses and America’s holding up a small onesie. “We’re welcoming one more face to kiss in 2018! Wishing you #MásBesos in the New Year! #babybesos #HappyNewYear ?.”
Piers William shared an identical photo, as well as a close-up of the onesie, writing, “Making room for new and beautiful things to come in 2018!#happynewyear.”
Ferrera is part of a new movement announced on Monday which involves women of power and influence including Shonda Rhimes, our Bumpwatch alums Kerry Washington, her fellow first-time mom-to-be Eva Longoria; the lawyer Nina L. Shaw; the actress Reese Witherspoon; attorney Tina Tchen and more, pledging support to working-class women in an open letter signed by hundreds of women in show business, many of them A-listers. The letter also ran as a full-page ad in The New York Times, and in La Opinion, a Spanish-language newspaper.
In lieu of the usual award show Red Carpet run down, we’re just showcasing the stunning baby bumps on display last night at the Academy Awards show held at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood, California.
Recording artist and model Ciara went to the Vanity Fair after party in an almost bare, sheer, see-through mesh Grecian crystal adorned custom Ralph & Russo one-shoulder gown revealing her silhouette and toned legs in a strategically placed slit and accompanying draping, highlighted with silver strappy heels and bronze make up.
She looked stunning.
Ciara is expecting her second child with husband, Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson. She is mom to almost 3-year old daughter Sienna Princess and 5 1/2 year old son Future Zuhair from a previous relationship, hip hop performer Future.
Meanwhile, Superstore star America Ferrera attended the actual awards ceremony and also went with another form of regal wear. Hers was a wine-colored custom Alberta Ferretii limited edition empire waist gown with full cap sleeves, accessorized with a custom Jennifer Behr brass halo.
At tonight’s Screen Actors Guild Awards, several of our fave moms featured on the blog in the past were up for a statue in several categories.
Christina Applegate was nominated for her brilliant work in Dead to Me;Scarlett Johansson for Marriage Story and JoJo Rabbit, Screen Actors Guild Awards and Charlize Theron for Bombshell and Jennifer Lopez for Hustlers, and Nicole Kidman and Reese Witherspoon for Big Little Lies,Anna Paquin for her role as the older Peggy Sheeran with the cast of The Irishman
Fashion and Red Carpet-wise, we saw a lots of pinks, romantic feminine sheer and chiffon, deep v-cut necklines, and plenty of very full ball gowns tonight including on Jennifer Garner who presented an award last night.
JLo went with a dark velor gown by Georges Hobeika Couture whilst dropping in Harry Winston diamonds – very Diamonds Are a Girl’s Best FriendMarilyn Monroe-esque.
Johansson was stunning in a satin teal low cut Armani Prive dress.
It was a halter and matching belted Givenchy high waist skirt with center split for Theron.

If you follow this blog, you know I am a die-hard Beyonce, also a Jay and Bey fan and a fangirl of sci-fi and action movies so, I was quite geeked to immediately open up and peep the brand new video for Jay Z‘s song “Family Feud” off of his 444 album which melds all of my faves into one fantastical, visually-stimulating treat.
And I must say, the cinematography is on point….
All the Yeses to the Ava DuVernay-directed futuristic video which gives me “Black Panther” vibes, because it is set the year 2444 in a universe where Power‘s Omari Hardwick is the co-President of the Free World and is the direct descendant of the matriarch of a fantastical diverse group of women, dubbed the Fore-mothers, who re-configured the US Constitution in the year 2050 along with a pact called the “Confessional Papers”, per the prose in the video.
ETA: the director explained the video:
Westworld’s Irene Bedard plays a co-President
A Native American woman is the co-President played by Westworld’s Irene Bedard.
Yes to This is Us star Susan Kelechi Watson playing an adult Blue Ivy Carter who quotes her dad during that meeting saying “ Nobody wins when the family feuds,” a line from the song.
The Mindy Project’s Mindy Kaling heads the meeting
Yes to the union of leaders led by a character played by a then-pregnant Mindy Kalingand featuring council members portrayed by ….
Claws‘ Neicy Nash, Angie Tribeca and Parks & Recreation‘s Rashida Jones, Room‘s Brie Larson, Marvel’s Luke Cageand The Defenders‘ starRosario Dawson, trans advocate, journalist and and social commentator Janet Mock, who are among the women who are tasked to lead the effort to set the world straight — as it should be because you know, given this “Me Too” era in the nation (and world), it really will take a small army of Women to do the job.
Fresh Off the Boat‘s Constance Wu
The Office’s Rashida Jones and Rosario Dawson, who stars in Marvel’s The Defenders, Jessica Jones and Luke Cage
Yes to the fictional president’s feuding for power family played by a Thandie Newton outfitted in a LeeLo from The Fifth Element-like bandage onesie who fights with her brother played by Creed and Black Panther’s Michael B. Jordan .
Creed and Black Panther star Michael B. Jordan

Jessica Chastain cameos
Yes to the president’s ancestors saving the world from a time when “Make Us Great” meant make us fear one another!
America Ferrera is a warrior
Yes to Beyonce sitting on her throne on the other side of a Catholic confessional, metaphorically and literally, waiting to assign penance to Jay for reportedly cheating on her, as is referenced in the song.
All the celebrities who made cameos shared behind-the-scenes photos from filming once the video was released exclusively on Tidal.
This is far from JAY-Z’s first video featuring some Hollywood heavyweights.
He previously dropped the Friends-inspired clip for “Moonlight” with Tessa Thompson, Tiffany Haddish, Jerrod Carmichael and Issa Rae as well as the Lupita Nyong’o-starring “MaNyfaCedGod” and “Adnis” starring Mahershala Ali.
JAY-Z’s 18th studio album, 4:44, recently received eight Grammy nominations, including Album of the Year and Best Rap Album.

Eva Longoria says Kerry Washington has been the best in helping her prepare for the birth of her first child
The Desperate Housewives alum, who’s now in her third trimester, toldAccess Hollywood this tidbit earlier.
“Kerry has actually been one of my main friends that I’ve been leaning on during pregnancy,” Eva told us. “She helped me find a baby nurse and [figure out what] a doula is. She’s been an endless source of information.”
The Scandal star also hooked Eva up with a bunch of maternity clothes!
“She gave me this suitcase of maternity clothes,” Eva dished. “It’s like the traveling suitcase — it just gets passed on. Then I have to add to it and then I’ll pass it on. Kerry’s been amazing.”
Washington shared a photo at the Costume Designers Guild Awards of Longoria with herself, Longoria and actress Gina Rodriguez.
“Sisters from other misters. That baby’s gonna have a lotta aunties!
THANK YOU @evalongoria for that beautiful introduction. You and @lynpaolomade me cry! And congrats to miss @hereisgina on being a bad*ss brilliant & beautiful host!!! Love y’all. #cdga20″
