The Hunger Games actress, Jena Malone, has welcomed her first child with boyfriend Ethan DeLorenzo. The 31-year-old took to Instagram to share the great news.

They decided to name their son Ode Mountain DeLorenzo Malone.

Jena began her career as an actress at the age of 10 with her next film, Neon Demon, in which she acts alongside Keanu Reeves, scheduled for release at the end of June. She is also known for her work in Pride & Prejudice and Sucker Punch, but has experience acting on television shows as well as on the stage.

Ethan is a photographer and musician. Jena is often the subject of his photographs, and the pair have also been known to make music together.

She made the original pregnancy announcement via social media about four months ago, when she posted a photo of herself outside showing off her baby bump.

The photo was captioned with the following:

“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”

Jena’s boyfriend Ethan shared an incredibly sweet video of the two and the their new son.

Additionally, he shared a powerful quote from Kahlil Gibran’s The Prophet.

“You may strive to be like them, but seek not to make them like you. For life goes not backward nor tarries with yesterday.”
