Actress Jena Malone is starting 2016 off with an exciting announcement: She's pregnant with her first child.
The 31-year-old "Hunger Games" star shared the news on social media, when her boyfriend, photographer Ethan DeLorenzo, posted a pic of the actress cradling a sizable baby bump. He captioned the sweet snap, "My family. @jenamalone and my child to be."
Malone followed up DeLorenzo's post with her own Instagram photo, also taken by DeLorenzo, and also featuring her showing off her adorable bump. The actress included a poem in the caption that she says she wrote several years ago about her own mother, and "the woman I was reaching to become" as a mother herself.
Womb to womb To beating wing I climbed out of the eternal And into the shape of me Some words I wrote years ago when I was thinking about my own mother. And the woman she was when she had me. And the woman I was reaching to become. The shape your desires make out of you. The body you become to hold your dreams. It's with two feet firmly on the ground and a heart swelling in an ocean of love that I'd like to share the new shape I am becoming to hold the greatest dream of them all. #babybump #newparents #impossibleproject Polaroid taken by my beautiful hearted baby daddy @uglyhippie
"It's with two feet firmly on the ground and a heart swelling in an ocean of love that I'd like to share the new shape I am becoming to hold the greatest dream of them all," Malone added.
Congrats to the happy couple!
