Milla Jovovich of 'Resident Evil' Fame Welcomes 3rd Child with Husband Paul WS Anderson & Shares Pics of the Newborn
Milla Jovovich has stopped slaying zombies in favor of having a beautiful family. The actress is now on her third baby girl after enduring a painful loss with her partner.
Unbeknownst to Jovovich, Ever made the big announcement on Instagram ahead of her own on Tuesday. Luckily, the actress treated fans to more pictures of the newborn in the post, which is found below.
Tons of pictures of Osian
Ever first shared a family photo in the hospital with everyone surrounding Jovovich as she held onto the newborn. The family of five all looked thrilled to have the new addition.
The next day, Jovovich posted six shots of Osian. Three of them were closeups of the newborn while the other four showed each member of the family holding the bundle of joy.
Jovovich shares her inspiration
In her caption, Jovovich admitted that she had no idea her daughter had shared the news already. Nonetheless, she gave the time, 8:56 a.m., that Osian was born and also explained the meaning of his name.
The "Resident Evil" actress said Osian is a Welsh name typically used for boys and is pronounced "O-shin." As for the middle names, the family voted and couldn't decide, so they went with both Lark and Elliott.
Jovovich, 44, went onto call her daughter a "miracle baby," likely due to her age and perhaps referencing the abortion she had back in 2017. She didn't clarify.

Hey Everyone!!! So without my knowledge @evergaboanderson spilled the beans on the new baby yesterday 🙄🤦🏻♀️😂 which makes this “old news” but anyway, at 8:56am on 02/02/2020 our baby girl Osian Lark Elliot Jovovich-Anderson was born! Osian is a welsh boy’s name and it’s pronounced O-shin. Now I know the name is long, but the family couldn’t agree on her middle name. Ever and my mom wanted Lark, @dashielanderson and I wanted Elliot. Then my husband Paul chimes in with another vote for Lark, so Smushy and I were out numbered 😛! At least she has many names to choose from later in life if she wants to drop a few. She’s so beautiful! Her hair is lighter than the other girls was and she’s very strong. Her little hands get in the way and they’re hard to control and she’s already lifting her head up to see what’s going on! She’s our miracle baby and we’re all so grateful to have her and completely obsessed with her!! I will obviously post more pics later, but we are all exhausted because the last few nights have been crazy! I send you all so much love from the cloud I’m flying on!!! Xoxo m❤️☁️✨⚡️⭐️💥☄️ #osianlarkelliot
A candid push for women to choose
Last year, Jovovich candidly discussed her abortion experience, which was a result of pre-term labor. At the time, she was making a political statement in light of recent anti-abortion legislation in a few states.
Jovovich's abortion happened when she was four months pregnant and shooting a movie in Eastern Europe. It left her in a depressive mental state for months afterward.

I don’t like to get political and I try to only do it if a really have to and this is one of those times. If someone doesn’t want to continue reading, you have been warned. Our rights as women to obtain safe abortions by experienced doctors are again at stake. Last Tuesday, Georgia Governor Brian Kemp signed a draconian bill into law that outlaws all abortions after six weeks — before most women even realize they’re pregnant — including in cases of RAPE OR INCEST. This makes Georgia the sixth state to pass such a restrictive six-week abortion ban, joining Ohio, Mississippi, Kentucky, Iowa, and North Dakota. These laws haven’t been passed yet, but lawmakers in these states are trying. Abortion is hard enough for women on an emotional level without having to go through it in potentially unsafe and unsanitary conditions. I myself went through an emergency abortion 2 years ago. I was 4 1/2 months pregnant and shooting on location in Eastern Europe. I went into pre term labor and told that I had to be awake for the whole procedure. It was one of the most horrific experiences I have ever gone through. I still have nightmares about it. I was alone and helpless. When I think about the fact that women might have to face abortions in even worse conditions than I did because of new laws, my stomach turns. I spiraled into one of the worst depressions of my life and had to work extremely hard to find my way out. I took time off of my career. I isolated myself for months and had to keep a strong face for my two amazing kids. I started gardening, eating healthier and going to the gym everyday because I didn’t want to jump into taking anti depressants unless I had tried every other alternative. Thank God I was able to find my way out of that personal hell without turning to medication, but the memory of what I went through and what I lost will be with me till the day I die. Abortion is a nightmare at its best. No woman wants to go through that. But we have to fight to make sure our rights are preserved to obtain a safe one if we need to. I never wanted to speak about this experience. But I cannot remain silent when so much is at stake. #prochoice #prochoicegeneration
Jovovich announces her pregnancy
The actress' nightmare was followed up by joyous news, which she shared in August last year. In her pregnancy announcement, Jovovich admitted that she was scared at first considering her previous loss.
Thankfully, after several visits to the doctor, she was given the all-clear and learned that she'd be having a baby girl — she was thrilled, as were her fans.

Knocked up again.🤫 After I found out I was pregnant 13 weeks ago, I had a mixture of feelings ranging between complete joy and utter terror. Because of my age and losing the last pregnancy I didn’t want to get attached to this potential baby too quickly. That was obviously not fun and the last few months have been my family and I living on pins and needles waiting for a slew of different test results to come in and spending most of our time in doctors offices. Thank goodness we’re in the clear AND we found out that we’ve been blessed with another girl!😆😂🥰 Anyway, wish me and my baby luck! I send you all a lot of love and I’ll keep you posted on my progression! Xoxo m❤️
She was ready for the new baby
Two weeks ahead of the delivery, Jovovich shared a picture of her heavily pregnant self lying down on a couch. The "Hellboy" star confessed that despite her gratitude at being pregnant, she was quite ready to deliver.
She detailed all the struggles she was going through and asked other mothers to share theirs so she could relate. She must be excited to be back to normal now, and even more excited to have another girl.

For those of you who don’t know me, I’m about to have our 3rd baby and I’m SO GRATEFUL for being pregnant again, especially at my age and I thank god everyday for blessing me, but Oh my lord am I ready to have this baby. 😂 2 weeks and change till we welcome our new little human and as every woman in history who has ever had a baby knows well, the last month is SO HARD! Ladies, what are some of your most uncomfortable memories from the last month before delivery? I mean, i seriously gotta relate to some mama’s for a second! I’m fully elephant ankles, back pain, hips hurt, running to the bathroom every 15 minutes. And sleep? Forget it. Which is so annoying because if the baby is a screamer like our eldest was, we won’t be seeing the back of our eyes for the next few years!😅 Tbh, bring it on because as long as I can stretch again and go to the gym again and just be able to simply put my socks on again without turning red from effort, I think I’ll be able to handle anything. The only positive is this awesome dress by @asos which i love and is so cool and comfy, but I’m wearing it so much because i only have a few nice maternity dresses! 2 weeks and change people. Let’s do this.✊🏼😎
In addition to being a strong mother, Jovovich has not slowed down her appearances on screen. According to IMDb, she has a few new movies coming up. Talk about having it all. Congrats, Milla!
