What a fun looking group!

The comedienne captioned the adorable pic:

"It's nice to love people."

Awww, so sweet. It's nice to see L.D. in such a positive place in light of her recent mental troubles. Maybe all the New York native needed was some TLC and much deserved one on one time with her girlfriends!

As for Byrne, we can't believe how big her tummy has gotten since we learned she was expecting a little one with her boyfriend of almost three years, Bobby Cannavale!

It's good to know the couple's new addition will be surrounded by so much love and seriously funny women!
