  • Lovely news for Hunger Games actress Jena Malone and her musician boyfriend Ethan DeLorenzo, who’ve just welcomed their first child together!

    The actress, who plays Johanna Mason in the hit films, couldn’t wait to share the happy news of her baby’s arrival, and announced their rather unusual choice of name in a sweet Instagram snap.

    The black and white pic, which shows the new parents looking lovingly at their newborn, appears alongside a caption from the actress:

    ‘The best weekend of our lives!!! What an incredible blessing to be chosen by this amazing , kind , gentle and beautiful soul to be his parents. Humbled and in complete awe that we get to experience the most ancient and transcendent love that exists.

    Thank you Ode Mountain DeLorenzo Malone.’

    Jena, 31, is no stranger to sharing a bump pic or two on her Instagram account, including this one that she posted just five weeks ago, at Yosemite.

    In fact it was on Instagram that she and boyfriend Ethan, who was a member of Chris Brown’s band from 2010 until 2012, first announced that they were expecting.

    She wrote: ‘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 #impossibleproject

    Jena has appeared in Pride and Prejudice, Into the Wild and Sucker Punch, although she is best known for her role as the ruthless Johanna Mason in The Hunger Games.

    Congratulations to the new parents!
