A happy new year, indeed.

America Ferrera is expecting her first child with husband Ryan Piers Williams.

The Superstore actress announced the happy news on New Year's Eve. "We're welcoming one more face to kiss in 2018! Wishing you #MasBesos in the New Year! #babybesos #HappyNewYear," Ferrera captioned on Instagram alongside a selfie of the couple wearing 2018 New Year's Eve party glasses and an adorable onesie that reads "Mas Besos (por favor)."

Williams posted the same photo and wrote, "Making room for new and beautiful things to come in 2018!"

Ferrera, 33, and Williams, 36, celebrated their 12-year anniversary in Iceland this year.

The couple, who first met when Williams cast the actress in a student film at the University of Southern California, tied the knot in January 2011 after getting engaged in June 2010.

Ferrera's pregnancy news came one day before she announced the Time's Up initiative to fight systemic sexual harassment in the workplace. Ferrera is among the 300 Hollywood women to take part in the initiative.
