Michelle Williams and America Ferrera proudly showed off their baby bumps at the 2020 Screen Actors Guild (SAG) Awards on Sunday night.

The actress hit the red carpet with her new fiance Thomas Kail, just weeks after news of her pregnancy broke, and stunned in a black off-the-shoulder Louis Vuitton dress.

Michelle’s blossoming baby bump was just visible underneath her flowing column dress, with the 39-year-old choosing to top off her look with a slick of ruby red lipstick and Forevermark jewellery.

And the star was also one of the winners at the ceremony, scooping the Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Television Movie or Miniseries gong for her role as Gwen Verdon in drama series Fosse/Verdon.

While accepting her prize, Michelle paid tribute to Hamilton director Thomas, and also thanked her 14-year-old daughter Matilda, whom she shared with the late Heath Ledger.

“Tommy, like everything else in our life, I share this with you, and Matilda, it’s one thing to be completely honest as an actor. It’s another thing to be completely honest as a human being,” she gushed. “And that’s just who you are and how you live, and you teach me just by being you. I love you, and I’m coming home.”

Also hitting the red carpet with a blossoming baby bump was Superstore actress America, who announced in December that she was expecting her second child with husband Ryan Piers Williams.

The 35-year-old wowed in a chic sleeveless black crepe gown by Paule Ka, and shared a series of snaps on Instagram showcasing her pregnancy look.

“Mommy & Daddy go out (in matching tuxedos)!!” she wrote.

America Ferrera is determined to stay fit and strong during her second pregnancy.

Earlier this month, the Ugly Betty star announced that she and husband Ryan Piers Williams were expecting a little brother or sister for their 19-month-old son Sebastian.

Now, in a new Instagram post, America has shared a picture of her working out in the gym with her baby bump proudly on display. In the accompanying caption, she told her fans that she was trying to keep fit in an effort to stay healthy, both mentally and physically.

“Soooooooo hard to workout through the nausea and exhaustion of my first trimester!!! Some weeks I’d only muster one workout or I’d miss the week entirely, but I refused to feel like I had failed,” she wrote. “Through this pregnancy, I’m equally committed to feeling strong AND being kind to myself.”

It wasn’t long before America was quizzed on her reasons to exercise while pregnant, and she was asked by one curious follower why she felt she “had to” work out.

“I don’t have to. I like to. Staying active makes me feel stronger in the long run and it’s good for my mental sanity. Overall it makes me feel good, even when it can be a hard push from day to day,” the 35-year-old replied.

And America later told another fan who commented on her post that she didn’t work out at all during her first pregnancy because she felt “so tired and overwhelmed”. Yet, she was keen to make a change while pregnant the second time.

“I love how it makes me feel and I love taking time to do something that’s just for me,” she insisted of her gym sessions.

America Ferrera is rebuilding body strength after baby

New mum America Ferrera isn’t worried about shedding her pregnancy pounds because she is more focused on rebuilding her body’s strength.

The former Ugly Betty star gave birth to her first child, a son named Sebastian, with her husband Ryan Piers Williams in May (18), and now she’s more settled into life as a mum, America is starting to turn her attention to her own body.

“I’m just now starting to feel like I want to feel strong in my body again,” she tells Health magazine.

“I didn’t work out as much as I imagined I would during my pregnancy. I was in triathlon shape when I got pregnant. I had so much on my plate and something had to give.”

Despite being less active than she had planned, the 34 year old found herself feeling “really powerful and healthy” as she nurtured her unborn child.

“You create life. I found so much power in that,” gushes America, who is still breastfeeding her boy.

Motherhood has also affected the way the actress approaches her diet: “I have changed my relationship to food. I swore off (weighing) scales a long time ago,” she shares. “More than anything, I just try to be aware of how does what I eat make me feel? Do I feel better? Do I feel energized? Does this make me tired and not feel great?”

The star has also adopted a more relaxed approach to other aspects of her life, and is just determined to do her best with every task she faces.

“I try to go easy on myself,” she explains. “I think that’s been one of the mantras for me in all of motherhood – to try and not be so hard on myself. Which is a challenge because, like so many women, I demand so much more of myself than I would ever demand of someone else.”
