This is the second time America has been able to announce her baby news on eve of a New Year, having confirmed her pregnancy with Sebastian on New Year's Eve in 2017.

America, who starred in Ugly Betty from 2006 to 2010, married Ryan in 2011 after meeting at the University of Southern California, where they worked on a student film together.

The actress previously opened up about how pregnancy and motherhood had changed her during a chat with Health Magazine.

She said: "You create life. I found so much power in that. In terms of my relationship to my body, I’m still breastfeeding, so it’s still very much in service of my son.

"There are parts of it that I love and also parts of it that are super challenging. I’m just now starting to feel like I want to feel strong in my body again.

"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.”

As for how it's changed her relationship with Ryan, she added: "It’s absolutely changed us as individuals.

"It changes what we talk about and what we focus on. For so long, it’s been just the two of us, and we’ve had an amazing life together.

"I don’t know that either one of us could anticipate how much we love [Sebastian] and how it makes everything new again.”
