Mena Suvari has confirmed that she is pregnant with her first child – a son – with her husband Michael Hope.

The actress, 41, confirmed the exciting news on Instagram, sharing a photo of herself cradling her belly.

Mena wrote: “The greatest and most precious gift has come to us. Through all the trauma, through all the struggle, through all the doubt, our little angel chose us.

“I will never have enough words to describe my love for this beautiful soul that comes into our lives, but I will never stop trying to give it the best life possible.

She added, “You are everything I ever wanted and the most important thing that will ever matter.

“We love you, #BabyHope. We welcome you, honor and cherish you.

Mena then spoke to People about her pregnancy, telling the post that it was “touching” but “strange” to find out she was going to have a baby.

“It’s always this process for me to believe it and accept that something so beautiful can happen to me,” she explained.

“It was a very moving experience. It’s very strange to find out – I was like, I can’t believe it!

She added, “I had to learn to be a different way with my appetite and sleep patterns and not push myself to ask for help – all of these things are difficult for an independent woman! ”

The American beauty star admitted the pregnancy came as a surprise to her and her husband, who tied the knot in 2018.

Mena said she and Michael started trying to have a baby earlier this year, with the pregnancy finally coming after months of disappointment.

She admitted to feeling ‘stressed’ that this didn’t happen at first, even though she ‘recorded her temperature every morning and peed on ovulation sticks’, eventually stepping back after a series of negative pregnancy tests. .

Mena continued, “I’m 41 and it looks like I’ve got one foot in the grave and good luck.

“I was really open like the Aquarius that I am – whether this is my path or not.

It wasn’t until she traveled to Georgia in July to start filming a new project that she began to experience symptoms and then take a test that turned out positive.

“It was a huge surprise, an absolute miracle! she exclaimed. “It was something we always wanted, but a few months ago I had stopped calculating. I pulled back and let go, which apparently said that’s where it happens.

Mena also pays tribute to being able to trust her own body, although some people question her decision to wait until she is older to have a child, adding that the woman should feel “empowered” “.
