Malin Akerman Pregnant With First Child

Us Weekly Exclusive: Rock of Ages actress Malin Akerman better brush up on her lullabies!

The Swedish-Canadian beauty, 34, is pregnant, her rep confirms to Us Weekly exclusively. It’s the first child for Akerman and her husband of five years, Roberto Zincone — the drummer in her former alternative rock band The Petalstones.

Her pregnancy is sure to be a dream for the actress, who told Us in June 2011 that she and Zincone “absolutely” wanted children sooner rather than later. Akerman — who also appeared in Wanderlust and Watchmen plus the TV show Children’s Hospital, among many other credits — is confident her husband will make a great dad because of his easygoing demeanor.

“We rarely bicker,” the actress tells Us of her husband, with whom she recently renovated a home. “We’ll sort of fume at each other and then we’ll figure it out.”

The couple is also good at keeping the romance alive — no matter where they are. “We’ve had some really great experiences. When I was shooting [2009's Couples Retreat] in Bora Bora, he came out there and it was like a honeymoon that we never had,” gushed the mom-to-be, who vows to never spend more than 2-3 weeks away from her man. “We get really lucky and we make it work.”
