Throughout her pregnancy, the mom-to-be took to social media to share photos of her growing baby bump, including a recent shot of her cradling her belly while on her way to exercise.

“Pre-natal yoga time!” Williams, who also played Claudia on How I Met Your Mother, captioned the picture, adding the hashtag “#werkit baby.”

Williams — who stars in the new movie Woodlawn, in theaters now — and Bricken, a talent and literary manager at The Cartel, were married on New Year’s Eve in 2007.
