Milla Jovovich is expecting her 2nd child, postpones ‘Resident Evil 6’ shoot

Milla Jovovich

I’ve been following Milla Jovovich’s career ever since she graced the cover of Seventeen at age 12. She was an incredibly successful model and appeared in some awful movies (although many people have a soft spot for Dazed & Confused) before breaking through with The Fifth Element. In her personal life, Milla used to be pretty wild. She married for the first time at age 16 and went through a second marriage a few years later. She settled down and eventually met her “forever” husband in Paul W.S. Anderson in 2002. They were making the first Resident Evil movie, and it was love at first zombie. Several RE films later, they are also parents to a 6-year-old daughter named Ever.

Milla’s been very broody lately. It was only last week that Milla told Hello! (via People), “I want to have a baby and that is my number one priority. If I don’t do it now, it will get more difficult the older I get.” Milla is 38 years old now, and she doesn’t have to wait any longer to be pregnant. She’s made a very special announcement on her Facebook page:

Happy Monday everyone! This was originally going to be a post to tell you how excited I am about flying to Cape Town to begin working on Resident Evil: The Final Chapter. But … My husband Paul and I just discovered that we are expecting another baby!!!

So after a lot of discussion, we thought it would be in everyone’s best interest to wait till the baby is born before we set out to try and tackle an RE movie. Between the stunt work and what will become my ever-expanding belly, we didn’t think pregnancy and zombie killing are the best combo! Lol! I imagine the only thing I’ll be killing in the near future is an endless supply of cupcakes. Yikes …

In all seriousness though, we want to make the best movie possible and that would be extremely difficult, to say the least, in my present condition.

I would like to take a moment to say thank you to everyone who has been working so hard on the movie in South Africa already and we are so looking forward to working with you all next summer. And when we arrive, it will hopefully be with the newest member of our little family! YAY!

Thanks so much for understanding! All the best! -m

LOL at Milla’s intention of making “the best movie possible” to top off the Resident Evil series. The first movie wasn’t bad, but the rest of the movies are awful! I adore Milla, but the RE films are unwatchable to me. I get that they’re based upon video games, which provides a built-in fanbase to keep the franchise going. The films are not only very lucrative, but they must be a labor of love for Milla and Paul.

The pregnancy news is amazing, especially with the timing of Milla’s recent declaration to get pregnant. Girlfriend wasn’t kidding around. Congrats to Milla and Paul!

Here are photos of Milla last week at LAX. She’s not showing yet, right?

    I like Mila, she’s a former girl crush. Such a natural beauty. She’s not so much in your face that makes you grow tired of her. That being said enough with the fricking Resident Evil movies, which I probably will be seeing at some point.

    • reddy says:

      Noooooooo! Never enough with the Resident Evil movies!!!!

      • FLORC says:

        Right! There’s only 1 more to go. It will be epic in a terrible and cgi way, but it will wrap things up. I’ve waited long enough for this movie. Shame on Milla for getting knocked up!

    • lana86 says:

      she’s lovely- like, actually beautiful girl!! Among the tonnes of celebrities, who r praised for their good looks while being just somewhat above average. I understand they r probably being praised out of politeness or smth.

    • Rice says:

      Okay, I absolutely LOOOVE The Resident Evil series. I’ve seen every single corny, yet action-packed, sequel so I’ll definitely be seeing the final one. Milla kicks a$$!! But she was also phenomenal in The Fifth Element. She seems to have found her niche in heroine action movies and she’s great in them (except that Ultrviolet nonsense). Congrats to her and Paul!!!

    • Mike says:

      I agree Mila is a pretty likable actress. I have only seen a few of the RE movies but I will watch her in anything that is a little less suckey. Can’t blame her for cashing the checks though. You never know when they stiop asking you to star in movies

  2. magda says:

    because of The Fifth Element I will always adore her.

  3. Luca26 says:

    I love Fifth Element! And if I remember correctly her song wasn’t too bad either.

  4. Miffy says:

    Love her, love zombies, hate the RE movies (they’re just awful). I’d much rather see her pregnant again. Oh my god, she was the most unapologetic pregnant celebrity ever. It was awesome! She just didn’t give a damn. So YAY for this all round!!!

  5. reddy says:

    I love her and I love the Resident Evil series…the movies are so really not good, but I love them anyway.

    • Josephine says:

      I’m with you. The first one was really unexpected and fun, the rest not so good. But I keep watching anyway – she’s just so great at kicking butt and I love to see her in action!

      • reddy says:

        They give me the “rocky-effect”. Whenever I see one I feel like working out, just because I want to kick ass like she does. Never lasts long though.

  6. Isadora says:

    Love her, she seems like such a great person – very open, very lovely. And she’s of course also a great beauty. I wish she wouldn’t have stopped with her fashion label, loved her clothes!

  7. Leaflet says:

    I feel like this franchise will never end. Is it really all that popular? I saw the first one, but I wasn’t that interested in seeing the second.

  8. Marianne says:

    I know the Resident Evil movies aren’t really great, but they are kind of her bread and butter.

  9. eliza says:

    I sort of enjoy the ‘RE movies. I don’t look at them as some fabulous thought provoking franchise but for what they are, entertainment.

    I have always thought Mills was extremely beautiful. I hope to see her in more movies in the future. Really liked her in The Getaway.

  11. Jaderu says:

    Big Ba Da BOOM! Congrats to Milla!

  12. blissy says:

    I Love RE… Not because they are the best movies ever, just because i get to see her kick butt. I’ll watch hours of just that!

  13. bns says:

    I love her so much.

  14. mkyarwood says:

    Love her forever. She’s a riot on her FB page. I feel her on the ‘have last baby’ before you personally feel it’s too late to get on with it. My cutoff is/was 35 (due any day) and my reasons were a)financial, and b) not wanting to be supporting kids well into my 60’s and 70’s.

  15. snowflake says:

    she is so beautiful!

  16. Jess says:

    Love love love her! She’s so pretty and seems down to earth. I named my daughter Milla and chose that spelling over Mila because of her. I had my daughter a week early but Milla gave birth on my due date, so felt like it was a sign I chose the right spelling, lol.

  17. Eve says:

    I always thought Taylor swift looks alot like Milla J, like she could be Taylor’s older sister or mom.

  18. Kori says:

    She was a guest judge on Project Runway once and she was so sweet–and actually knowledgeable about fashion unlike some guest judges. She actually looked like she was going to cry when the contestant was ‘auf’d’. I thought she’d be more reserved or cool but just very kind and approachable. And she is SO stunning.

  19. amara says:


    But please postpone Resident Evil forever.

  20. Bridget says:

    Congrats to her… but am I the only one thinking about all of the people who were gearing up to work, and have now been told that they’ll have a job in a year?

  21. Camille (The Original) says:


    Love her and will watch her in pretty much anything (even though she is often in some very crap movies).

  22. Lauraq says:

    Love the games, hate the movies. My fiancee loves both, though, so I always end up seeing the movies. I’m glad this is the last one.
