Ferrera, who for years struggled with accepting her body, embraced it this year in April on her 33rd birthday, just in time for her exciting new adventure. “At 33, I finally understand that my body is a miracle!” she captioned an Instagram photo of herself and two friends at SoulCycle, blowing a kiss at the camera. “After too many years of criticizing, punishing, depriving, or neglecting my body for what it isn’t, I’m attempting to love it unapologetically as it is! Thank you body for 33 years of standing with me even when I wasn’t on your side.”
