Jena Malone is pregnant
The Hunger Games star Jena Malone is expecting her first child.
The 31-year-old actress announced the news by posting a picture on Instagram in which she is wearing a floaty dress and Wellington boots while cradling a large baby bump.
She wrote in the caption, "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."
She credited her "beautiful hearted baby daddy" Ethan DeLorenzo for taking the photograph, which was snapped in the countryside.
Ethan has posted a similar photograph of Jena in the woods and wrote, "My family. @jenamalone and my child to be."
Jena has already wrapped on several movies due out this year (16), one of them being Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, so it seems she has a quiet schedule ahead to embrace motherhood. Up until 2015 the star had been kept busy with The Hunger Games franchise, in which she played District 7 victor Johanna Mason in Catching Fire and both Mockingjay instalments. When the journey finally came to an end, old habits were hard to leave behind.
"After every breakup, after every movie, I always want to cut my hair off," she previously laughed to Vulture. "Whenever we finish a chapter in our life. But I finally got to the point where I'm like, 'You're not in your 20s anymore! You don't have to change your hair every two seconds. Let it be.'"
