America Ferrera has a lot to celebrate. She stars in the most anticipated film of the summer, “Barbie,” and celebrated 12 years of marriage with husband Ryan Pierce Williams on June 28. “Of course I reach for the gorgeous anniversary flowers in Australia because you are a king @ryanpierswilliams,” she wrote on Instagram, per People.
In addition to sharing a longtime love, Ferreira and Williams also have two children, although Ferreira usually keeps her children’s lives pretty private. Since tying the knot with Williams on June 27, 2011, the couple has a son and a daughter.
Overall, it seems that Ferreira prefers to keep her work life separate from her family. In fact, her kids actually don’t even know their mom is starring in “Barbie” — though it has a lot more to do with her age. “They really don’t have any context for it,” Ferreira told People in 2022. “So one day [they might care], But not now, they’re still too young.”
Ferreira provided some rare insight into her home life in 2021 when she opened up about giving birth to her daughter during the peak of the pandemic, per E! news. ‘Things were actually quite scary,’ she told the outlet. “I really found myself trying to take a lot of deep breaths and maintain a bigger perspective and really be on some level, even just on a heart level, globally and really from time to time Trying to join all the other moms out there who have had to do this. Be pregnant and give birth and raise babies at uncertain and scary times and in uncertain and scary circumstances.”
The tension didn’t ease when she brought her daughter home. “It was definitely a way of survival for a lot of people,” he said of newborn births during the pandemic. “I had a C-section and I was recovering on my own and, you know, everything that comes with being postpartum and adapting to being a mother, now of two kids, without any help or community. , I’m able to do what I normally do by having people around me: friends and family and other resources to help make those times feel lighter.”
Ferreira also told the outlet that the experience also exposed “huge disparities between what some parents and children have access to and what others don’t.” “I’ve always been a very empathetic person, but once I became a mother, it’s heartbreaking to think that other parents won’t be able to provide what they want to provide for their own children.” “
