The Hunger Games actress Jena Malone is expecting her first baby.

The star posted a beautiful picture of her cradling her baby bump on Instagram.

She added 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”

The picture was taken by her boyfriend Ethan DeLorenzo, who also shared his own photo of the mother-to-be.

The couple are clearly enjoying spending time together before the big arrival, with Jena sharing this super-cute picture of the two snuggling.

Jena is best known for her role as Johanna Mason in the Hunger Games movie franchise, but it seems she won’t be filming any action scenes for a little while.

However, she is rumoured to make an appearance in the highly anticipated movie Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice, which is due for release later this year.
