Jena Malone is celebrating an abundance of love in her life.
The actress, who gave birth to her first child in May, just revealed on Instagram that she’s engaged to boyfriend and father of her baby boy, Ethan DeLorenzo. And she couldn’t have announced the happy news in a cuter way.
Malone shared a precious up-close photograph of her 3-month-old Ode Mountain DeLorenzo and his piercing baby blues, while the new mama gently lays her hand on his head, and there’s a huge diamond sparkler on that hand!
“One day, after all the youthful rushing quiets in your heart, you realize there’s nothing more you need. Nothing more you want to achieve than to build your life around love,” she captions the post. “And oh the things we will get to build together. I couldn’t be happier. I love you Ethan.”
She completed the caption with the hashtag “#isaidyes” and a diamond emoji, just to make things crystal clear that a proposal went down.
Malone revealed she was expecting her first child in a photo of herself mountainside embracing the outline of her already growing belly. “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 declared on social media at the time.
DeLorenzo marked the special occasion by quoting an excerpt on children from Kahlil Gibran‘s The Prophet. “You may strive to be like them, but seek not to make them like you. For life goes not backward nor tarries with yesterday.”
Once their son was born, the duo were overwhelmed with happiness and love. The star took to Instagram and 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.”
