As if America Ferrera’s pregnancy news weren’t exciting enough, the four stars of The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants — Ferrera, Blake Lively, Alexis Bledel, and Amber Tamblyn — just reunited to celebrate the fact that a baby is on the way.
Soon after the Superstore actress announced that she’s expecting her first child with husband Ryan Piers Williams, she took to social media again to share the special moment with her followers, posting a shot of herself sitting on a comfy couch with her BFFs. All four are smiling and touching Ferrera’s stomach.
“Starting the New Year off with blessings from my Sisterhood,” the first-time mom-to-be captioned the image. She also added a call to action of sorts, writing, “We’ve got work to do for the next generation. Let’s get to it. #TIMESUP”
Tamblyn shared the pic on her own Instagram, adding, “Didn’t think anything could beat starting off the new year with the #TIMESUP Legal Defense Fund initiative yesterday, but then…”
#TIMESUP refers, of course, to the #TimesUp initiative, which Tamblyn and more than 300 women in Hollywood launched with a letter of solidarity on New Year’s Day. The initiative includes a legal defense fund to help people who face sexual abuse and harassment at work.
It sounds like these ladies are excited about welcoming another little one into their extended family and gearing up to make the world a better place for all of us and our children.
