Gina Rodriguez is pregnant with her first child, the actress announced on her 38th birthday via social media.

“This birthday is going to be different. ❤️,” the “Jane The Virgin” star captioned an Instagram clip composed of photos of the actress kissing her husband, Joe LoCicero, with a photo of Rodriguez holding a positive pregnancy test while her husband smiles broadly.

‘Anyone can want you. But love being different when someone really appreciates you,” a deep voice told about the clip.

Several celebrity friends congratulated the pair, including “Orange is the New Black” alum and mother-of-one Danielle Brooks, who wrote: “Welcome to the club mommy!!! .”

“Yes my love!! So much love for you THREE 😍,” Brittany Snow added, while Selenis Leyva commented: “This is exactly the kind of happiness I envisioned for you! Te adoro hermana!!!!! Congratulations to both of you.”

Rodriguez and LoCicero, 35, met on the set of “Jane the Virgin” in 2016 when he guest-starred on the CW show. The couple confirmed their engagement two years later and got married in 2019.

“I have an actor’s curse because it directly affects your metabolism, you know, you don’t make the hormone your body needs,” she said.

Rodriguez continued, “So you can sometimes feel like you’ve lost communication with this thing, that spacesuit you’re in, and you just say, ‘Why don’t I have a handle on shifting what is this physical being?'”
