    Mena Suvari is expecting her first child

    The ‘American Beauty’ actress and her husband Michael Hope are set to become first-time parents in the spring, and Mena has said she still can’t believe the good news


    She said: “It’s still this process for me of believing it and accepting that something this beautiful could happen for me. It’s been a very emotional experience. It’s very weird finding out - I was like, I can’t believe it!”

    The 41-year-old actress married Michael in 2018, and the pair began actively trying for a baby at the start of 2020.

    Mena added: “I’m 41 and there’s this air of, like, I’ve got one foot in the grave and good luck. I was recording my temperature every morning and peeing on these ovulation sticks. You expect that it’ll happen and it didn’t. I got to this place where I felt overwhelmed and stressed out.

    “I was like, ‘I can’t do this anymore’. I’m so tired of stressing over this. I was trying to feel like if it’s meant, it’s meant. I was being really open like the Aquarian that I am - if this is my path or not.”

    Thankfully, Mena discovered she was pregnant in late July, and she’s now halfway through her second trimester.

    Speaking to People magazine, she said: “It was something that we’ve always wanted, but a couple months before, I had stopped calculating. I pulled back and let go, which apparently they say that that’s when it happens.

    “I’m still falling into that place and just feeling so honoured that he came to us. It’s all I ever wanted for years. Even before I met my husband, I always wanted a little boy and it just feels so beautiful and special.”
