"Mockingjay" actress Jena Malone is expecting, and she found a pretty classy way to announce her pregnancy.

Malone, who will also be in the upcoming "Batman v. Superman" film, posted a gorgeous photo of herself standing in a field and captioned the pic with a poem she wrote.

"Womb to womb
To beating wing
I climbed out of the eternal
And into the shape of me."


Malone explained the inspiration behind the poem.

"Some words I wrote years ago when I was thinking about my own mother," she wrote. "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."

Then she dropped the news:

"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."

She added that the photo was taken by her boyfriend and her "beautiful hearted baby daddy," Ethan DeLorenzo.
