Best friends always have the best advice. It also helps when these friends are accomplished actresses that you’ve known since the beginning of your respective careers. This is the case with America Ferrera who found, not only a breakout role in Sisterhood Of The Traveling Pants but also a group of girlfriends that would stand the test of time.
Ferrera is expecting her first child with husband, Ryan Piers Williams, who she’s been married to for over six years.
The Superstore actress has made it known that her close friends, Alexis Bledel, Blake Lively and Amber Tamblyn who she met almost 15 years ago, have been nothing but warm and encouraging with their advice.
Ferrera is the last of the group to have a baby. Bledel has a son, Lively has two daughters and Tamblyn has a daughter. All of their kids are under the age of 3 so it looks like there will definitely be some playdates in the future.
Ferrera says that she asks the other three a million questions all the time and they’re always just one text message away.
She says that what they’ve all told her is that the labor and delivery process, as well as motherhood in general, is such a singular thing and can be different for everyone.
Ferrera also appreciates how they have quelled her fears and nerves regarding going back to work. As actresses, they all stayed home for a time but then had to return to work.
It seems that Bledel, Lively and Tamblyn have all given her comfort and words of encouragement regarding what the working mother life may entail whenever Ferrera does decide to go back to work.
Though it hasn’t been explicitly stated whether she is having a boy or a girl, Ferrera has hinted that she might know the sex of the baby.
Whether boy or girl, the baby will certainly have a group of loving aunties and play cousins surrounding him or her.
While the Sisterhood Of The Traveling Pants franchise has already seen two films, it would be interesting to see if a “mommy” version ever came to be.
