Jena Malone is going to be a mom! The Hunger Games actress is pregnant and expecting her first child with boyfriend Ethan DeLorenzo.

Malone, 31, announced the news via social media on Wednesday, January 20.

“Womb to womb / To beating wing / I climbed out of the eternal / And into the shape of me,” Malone captioned a scenic photo of herself cradling her baby bump. She shared the sweet snap on Instagram and Twitter, and explained that she wrote the poem years ago while thinking about her own mother and how the body changes during pregnancy.

“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,” she added. “#babybump #newparents #impossibleproject Polaroid taken by my beautiful hearted baby daddy @uglyhippie.”

Two days ago, Malone gushed over her photographer boyfriend. “Head over heels. Literally,” she captioned a fun Instagram photo of them together. “With my one and only.”

Head over heels. Literally. With my one and only.
