The TV star also shared a pair of videos to promote a charitable cause, revealing that Desperate Housewives star Eva Longoria had organised her baby shower and the donations for the important cause.

America continued, ‘Quarantine may have canceled her Baby Shower but it didn’t stop us from collecting and delivering essential supplies to #YesWeCanMobileSchools - spaces for moms and children at the border to learn, play, and stay safe through these hard times.

‘Dear friends, if you’re considering sending Lucia a gift, please donate to @yeswecanwf in her name. Or make a donation today in honor of the Moms you love! Visit for more info.
