It looks like Milla Jovovich is going to add to the family! The actress took to her IG account on Wednesday to announce that she is expecting her third baby with her hubby Paul W.S. Anderson.
The Hellboy star posted a mirror selfie in which her baby bump was visible under her lacy black dress and captioned it with: ‘Knocked up again.🤫 After I found out thirteen weeks ago, I had a mix of feelings ranging from complete joy to utter terror. Because of my age and also losing the last pregnancy I did not want to get attached to this baby too quickly.’
She went on to open up about it more, saying that ‘that was obviously not fun and the last months have been my family and I just living on pins and needles waiting for different test results to come in, spending most of our time at doctors’ offices. Thank goodness we are in the clear AND we found out that we have been blessed with another girl!😆😂Wish me and my baby luck! I send you all much love and I will keep you posted on my progression! Xoxo m❤️.’

Knocked up again.🤫 After I found out I was pregnant 13 weeks ago, I had a mixture of feelings ranging between complete joy and utter terror. Because of my age and losing the last pregnancy I didn’t want to get attached to this potential baby too quickly. That was obviously not fun and the last few months have been my family and I living on pins and needles waiting for a slew of different test results to come in and spending most of our time in doctors offices. Thank goodness we’re in the clear AND we found out that we’ve been blessed with another girl!😆😂🥰 Anyway, wish me and my baby luck! I send you all a lot of love and I’ll keep you posted on my progression! Xoxo m❤️
As she mentioned in the caption, Milla did open up about her emergency abortion she underwent two years ago.
It was in order to fight against those extremely restrictive abortion laws several states were passing back in May.
The star argued that abortion is already a very difficult thing to go through for women, both emotionally and physically, without forcing them to have it in potentially unsafe conditions if it’s illegal.

I don’t like to get political and I try to only do it if a really have to and this is one of those times. If someone doesn’t want to continue reading, you have been warned. Our rights as women to obtain safe abortions by experienced doctors are again at stake. Last Tuesday, Georgia Governor Brian Kemp signed a draconian bill into law that outlaws all abortions after six weeks — before most women even realize they’re pregnant — including in cases of RAPE OR INCEST. This makes Georgia the sixth state to pass such a restrictive six-week abortion ban, joining Ohio, Mississippi, Kentucky, Iowa, and North Dakota. These laws haven’t been passed yet, but lawmakers in these states are trying. Abortion is hard enough for women on an emotional level without having to go through it in potentially unsafe and unsanitary conditions. I myself went through an emergency abortion 2 years ago. I was 4 1/2 months pregnant and shooting on location in Eastern Europe. I went into pre term labor and told that I had to be awake for the whole procedure. It was one of the most horrific experiences I have ever gone through. I still have nightmares about it. I was alone and helpless. When I think about the fact that women might have to face abortions in even worse conditions than I did because of new laws, my stomach turns. I spiraled into one of the worst depressions of my life and had to work extremely hard to find my way out. I took time off of my career. I isolated myself for months and had to keep a strong face for my two amazing kids. I started gardening, eating healthier and going to the gym everyday because I didn’t want to jump into taking anti depressants unless I had tried every other alternative. Thank God I was able to find my way out of that personal hell without turning to medication, but the memory of what I went through and what I lost will be with me till the day I die. Abortion is a nightmare at its best. No woman wants to go through that. But we have to fight to make sure our rights are preserved to obtain a safe one if we need to. I never wanted to speak about this experience. But I cannot remain silent when so much is at stake. #prochoice #prochoicegeneration
Then, she revealed that, a couple of years ago, while filming in Eastern Europe and being four and a half months pregnant she went into pre-term labor.
Milla was told she had to be awake for the emergency abortion and it was one of the most horrible experiences she had ever been through.
