Williams and Ferrera first met when he cast her in a student film at the University of Southern California, they have been living together since 2007.

America Ferrera is best known for her role as Betty Swarez on the ABC television series ‘Ugly Betty’, which recently ended on April 14, 2010. For her part in ‘Ugly Betty’, Ferrera won the 2007 Golden Globe for Best Performance by an Actress in a Television Series – Comedy or Musical.

Ferrera has also starred in films such as ‘Real Woman Have Curves’, ‘Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants’, followed by its sequel ‘Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants 2’ and “How to Train your Dragon’.

In ‘How to Train your Dragon’, Ferrera played the voice of Astrid, a Viking blonde, Caucasian fighter who holds her own with the Viking boys.  She stated: “even though the character looked nothing like her, she could relate to her personality.”

America went on to say: “I was always the girl who, when I was younger, played baseball with the boys,” she said. “I did not play softball. I did not want to play softball. I wanted nothing to do with it. I wanted to play baseball with the guys and I wanted to be as good as them. So, I think I definitely related to Astrid.”

We wish America and Ryan all the best in their marriage and careers.
