America Ferrera has announced she's welcomed her first child with husband Ryan Piers Williams.

The actress revealed she was pregnant with her first child in January and has now given birth to a happy, healthy baby boy!

This is America and her husband, Ryan Piers Williams, first child together after nearly seven years of marriage.

America, who is best known for her role in the hit American TV show Ugly Betty, announced the happy news on Instagram, also revealed their new bundle of joy’s baby name.

Posting a picture of the newborn’s foot being cradled in what looks like America and Ryan Piers Williams’ hand, the mum-of-one wrote: ‘When 2 become 3… Welcome Sebastian Piers Williams – aka Baz! Mom, Dad, and Baby are happy, healthy and totally in love! 😍😍😍’.

When America announced that she was expecting, she did not say whether they were expecting a little boy or girl. It was also unclear how far along in the pregnancy she was, but having celebrated her baby shower at the end of last month it was clear she was going to give birth soon.

The couple have chosen to give Sebastian the same middle name as his father but they have not yet explained any more meaning behind their first name choice.

We love the nickname ‘Baz’ – hopefully they’ll tell us how this cute name came about!
