"I’m just trying to get to my HOT 80’s like Maya Angelou told me to! But for now, I’m grateful for the 34 years of getting to know myself," Ferrera wrote on Instagram on Wednesday alongside a Boomerang of her and the balloons. "I appreciate the opportunity to come closer to the best version of me through my friends, my family, my community, my loves, my creativity, the heartbreaks and the challenges. Today I give thanks for all the love in my life and for all the love to come!!! ? #34."
After getting up, the expectant mother was treated to "all the desserts" she wanted, taking to Instagram Stories to reveal the tasty treats. In one clip, she shows off her slice of chocolate cake that has a single candle and says "Happy Birthday" in chocolate syrup on the plate.
The day before her special day, her hubby gave her a gorgeous flower bouquet, which she shared with her Instagram followers. "Night before birthday flowers from my sweet love, baby daddy, sugar pie. @ryanpierswilliams," she wrote on the pic.
