Rodriguez is typically quiet, quiet about her life on social media, but this news was too exciting to keep to herself. The mushy video showed Rodriguez and her husband in candid moments in their lives; a date night, a mountain hike, a back-to-the-camera ‘oh are we being photographed’ kiss, you know the typical IG stuff. This birthday is going to be different,” she captioned the video.

Surprise, the last photo is of LoCicero and Rodriguez smiling happily, holding what we assume is a freshly peed stick and noticeably holding back tears. A voiceover for the video says: ‘Anyone can want you. But love strikes differently when someone really appreciates you.”

The IG post got a lot of attention from the actress’s friends in the industry. “OH MY GOD!!!!!! Congratulations!” Wrote Grammy-nominated singer Jordin Sparks. Actress Brittany Snow wrote: “Yaaaaay my love!! So much love for you THREE The excitement was shared by actresses Tina Sumpter and Nikki Reed.

The celebrity-filled comment section and post were liked by over 500,000 followers who were just as ecstatic as the actress and her husband!

The actress recently shared on Rachel Bilson and Olivia Allen’s podcast “Broad Ideas” that she wasn’t sure if she would get pregnant in the future. She battles Hashimoto’s disease, a thyroid disease with hormonal and physical disorders.

One symptom of thyroid disease is having trouble conceiving, if at all. This may be one of the reasons Rodriguez is so shocked, in addition to the emotions behind discovering she will be responsible for a human.

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

The actress shared that the mental symptoms of Hashimoto’s disease really took their toll at one point. “Sometimes it can feel like you’ve lost communication with this thing, that spacesuit you’re in, and you just think, ‘Why can’t I get a handle on changing what this physical being is? ‘”

One thing that helps the actress get along is doing things to keep her mentally and physically strong. She emphasizes to her followers the importance of building your confidence in the best possible way. That’s okay for her.

She regularly posts that she is engaged in new and daring activities, there is no doubt that it has boosted the actress’ self-confidence. This is a far cry from her first start in the industry where she shared how being Latina, curvier and in the industry had shaken her confidence.
