Some celebrities announce their pregnancies by posting cryptic photos of literal buns in ovens. Jena Malone opted for less pun and more poem.
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 Polaroid taken by my beautiful hearted baby daddy @uglyhippie

She and her boyfriend, Ethan DeLorenzo, are expecting their first child together and both announced the news on Instagram. His was a stunning photo of The Hunger Games star posing against a tree in an idyllic wood. “My family,” he captioned it. “[Jena Malone] and my child to be.” She shared something similar: a hazy Polaroid, shot by DeLorenzo, of her cradling her baby bump. She captioned the photo with a poem she “wrote years ago when [she] was thinking about [her] mother.” It reads:
“Womb to wombTo beating wingI climbed out of the eternalAnd into the shape of me”
