Alongside the snap, the actress wrote: ‘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❤️’

The exciting announcement comes just months after Hellboy star opened up about the ‘horrific abortion’ she had to go through two years ago.

Explaining that she was about four months pregnant at the time, she said she starting going into pre term labour at a shooting location in Eastern Europe and had to have an emergency abortion while fully awake.

‘It was one of the most horrific experiences I have ever gone through. I still have nightmares about it. I was alone and helpless’, she said.

‘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.’

Thankfully Milla managed to feel better after taking care of herself with exercise, gardening and a healthy diet, but the memory of the traumatic situation still haunts her.

‘The memory of what I went through and what I lost will be with me till the day I die’, she added.

This will be Milla's third child with husband Paul W.S. Anderson, an English film director, producer, and screenwriter, as the pair already share daughters Ever, 11, and Dashiel, four.
