Gina Rodriguez (38) has two reasons to celebrate. The actress turned 38 on Saturday (July 30). But that's not all: On the same day, the "Jane the Virgin" star announced that she was going to be a mother for the first time. Rodriguez shared a compilation of photos and videos of herself and her husband Joe LoCicero (35) on Instagram. At the end, a clip appears in which she holds a positive pregnancy test up to the camera. "This birthday is just different," Rodriguez wrote.
In the comments, celebrities such as Viola Davis (56), Julia Michaels (28), Nikki Reed (34) and Jordin Sparks (32) sent their congratulations to the mother-to-be. "My heart bursts for you both," wrote Rodriguez' serial father from "Jane the Virgin" Jaime Camil (49). Rodriguez's "Someone Great" co-star Brittany Snow, 36, commented: "Yaaaaay my love!! So much love for the THREE of you." "Orange is the New Black" star Danielle Brooks (32), who is also a young mother, welcomed Gina Rodriguez "to the club".
