Actress Milla Jovovich is pregnant with her second child.
The former model and her filmmaker husband Paul W. S. Anderson are preparing to welcome another member to their family.
Jovovich made the announcement on her Facebook.com page on Monday (18Aug14), revealing that the next instalment in her Resident Evil franchise will be put on hold due to her pregnancy.
She wrote, "This was originally going to be a post to tell you how excited I am about flying to Cape Town, South Africa to begin working on Resident Evil: The Final Chapter. But... My husband Paul and I just discovered that we are expecting another baby!!!
"So after a lot of discussion, we thought it would be in everyone’s best interest to wait till the baby is born before we set out to try and tackle an RE (Resident Evil) movie. Between the stunt work and what will become my ever-expanding belly, we didn't think pregnancy and zombie killing are the best combo! Lol (laugh out loud)! I imagine the only thing I’ll be killing in the near future is an endless supply of cupcakes. Yikes..."
She continued, "In all seriousness though, we want to make the best movie possible and that would be extremely difficult, to say the least, in my present condition. I would like to take a moment to say thank you to everyone who has been working so hard on the movie in South Africa already and we are so looking forward to working with you all next summer. And when we arrive, it will hopefully be with the newest member of our little family! YAY!"
Jovovich, 38, has been open about her eagerness to have another child sooner rather than later, recently telling Britain's Hello! magazine that having another baby is her "number one priority".
The model-turned-actress first met Anderson when he directed the 2002 Resident Evil film, and they welcomed daughter Ever Gabo in 2007. The pair exchanged vows in 2009.
