Actress Gina Rodriguez is pregnant with her first child with her husband Joe LoCicero. She announced the news on her 38th birthday.
“This birthday hits different,” Rodriguez wrote alongside a video clip of the couple with one photo of Rodriguez holding up a positive pregnancy test as LoCicero smiles beside her.
Gina Rodriguez and Joe LoCicero married on May 4, 2019, in an intimate wedding surrounded by friends and family. The couple dated for years before announcing their engagement in August 2018. They met in 2016 when LoCicero played the role of a stripper on the TV show Jane the Virgin.
Rodriguez had recently opened up about her battle with Hashimoto’s disease and recent diagnosis on the podcast Broad Ideas, “I got an actor’s curse because it directly affects your metabolism, you know, you’re not producing the hormone that your body needs. So you, at times, it can feel like you have a loss of communication with this thing, that spacesuit that you’re in, and you’re just like, ‘Why don’t I have a grasp on shifting what this physical being is?’”
