“The Sisterhood of The Traveling Pants” crew has a new member! But in spite of all that magic those famous jeans from the movie carry, it might be awhile before the group’s latest fledgling actually fits in them.
Because the newest sister in the sisterhood is Carmen, aka America Ferrera’s baby.
America Ferrera shared the news of her pregnancy on Twitter at the start of the New Year.
The “Superstore” actress confirmed her pregnancy in a post to her Instagram page over the weekend. In it, she and her husband, director Ryan Piers Williams, are holding up an adorable little onesie that reads “Más besos (por favor).”
And TBH it has us totally pumped, but not as much as the other photo she posted that will make you melt.
Nothing gets better than this pic of the OG Traveling Pants squad laying their hands on Ferrera’s baby bump.
Alexis Bledel, Amber Tamblyn, and Blake Lively pose with Ferrera for Instagram posts pretty regularly. And while each post is pretty damn delightful, this one takes the cake. Not just because it’s sweet, but because of the message of empowerment it also celebrates. Ferrera, a longtime activist and fresh off the work she’s doing with the Time’s Up legal defense initiative to assist women in all industries fight back against harassment and assault in the workplace, uses her pregnancy to call out the work we need to do for the next generation. Love it!
In a separate post to her own Instagram account, Tamblyn shared a copy of the group pic saying, “Didn’t think anything could beat starting off the new year with the #TIMESUP Legal Defense Fund initiative yesterday, but then…”
Emotions were at PEAK high on Twitter as fans reacted to the posts.

And LBR we could all use more of all those things!

And with the sisterhood also being such strong advocates for women’s rights, how can we not be excited?
To the pants. And the sisterhood. And America’s baby!
