Hunger Games actress Jena Malone and her boyfriend, Ethan DeLorenzo, announced the birth of their first child over the weekend.

Sharing a sweet photo on Instagram, the actress wrote: “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.”

The Saved! actress first announced her pregnancy in late January, writing “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”

The actress shared more poetry and pregnancy photos throughout her pregnancy. In mid-March, perhaps as a nod to the couple’s choice of name, she wrote, “Hiking a new mountaintop every week until our little one arrives.”
