Milla Jovovich's family unit

Milla Jovovich's family unit

Milla Jovovich has 'Resident Evil' to thank for giving her a family unit.

The 40-year-old actress is so glad she met her now-husband Paul W. S. Anderson through the film franchise and went on to have two beautiful children, Ever, eight, and 17-month-old Dashiel.

She said: "I think that the franchise has definitely made me who I am today. And I have two kids and an amazing husband because of it. I think that I've definitely become a stronger person through it."

The mother-of-two went on to gush about her youngest child, who she says already knows 50 words despite being less than two-years-old.

She added: "Oh my God, she's had a personality from literally the day that she was born. She was born smiling. By the time that she was 2 months old, she was cracking up at stuff.

"She was this really smart, little 2 month old who knew [when] something wasn't normal, that it was funny. And now she's just leaps and bounds, talking, she has more than 50 words in her vocabulary. It's quite amazing to see this little sprite growing."

Meanwhile, Milla also opened up about her eldest child, who she described as a "little mommy" to Dashiel.

She told People magazine: "She always makes her little sister laugh, and she's there anytime Dashiel cries. She has really stepped up to the plate in the most beautiful way. Because of the age difference, you don't have all of the jealousy so she really is like a little mommy sometimes.

"She can't pick her up because Dashiel is huge. She tries to pick her up, but I'm like, 'No, no, no. no. Don't go there.'"
