Actress America Ferrera is pregnant.

The 33-year-old and her husband Ryan Piers Williams are expecting their first child.

Ferrera announced the big baby news via Instagram on New Year's Eve.

"We’re welcoming one more face to kiss in 2018!" the former "Ugly Betty" star wrote under a photo of herself and Williams toasting 2018.

Ferrera and Williams, who met as students at the University of Southern California, wed in 2011.

The happy news comes just over two months after the actress revealed she was sexually assaulted at the age of nine in a heartbreaking social media post, as part of the #MeToo movement, which encourages women to open up about their sexual harassment and assault stories.
