Marc Malkin of Planet Gossip brings us the following scoop on the gorgeous Milla Jovovich!
I met Milla Jovovich last night. (May 14th) And she couldn’t have been nicer.
A couple of weeks ago, I broke the news that Jovovich, 31, and her fiancé, director Paul W.S. Anderson, are expecting their first baby.
I first got the baby-bump tip about Jovovich a couple of weeks before when Anderson was overheard in an LA diner talking to his mom about the big news. However, at the time, Jovovich’s rep declined to comment.
As much as I love being the first to break news, sometimes I just can’t run with it. In this case I chose to risk losing the scoop because, as we know, first trimesters can be tricky.
About three weeks later, though, I got an email from the rep thanking me for holding off. And they gave me the exclusive to break in my column.
Fast-forward to last night: Jovovich and Carmen Hawk were celebrating their new Jovovich-Hawk fashion collection at the Stoli Hotel party space in Hollywood.
“That was so sweet of you to hold off,” Jovovich said to me. “But I have to ask, Were you the one in the diner?”
I told her I wasn’t. She poked Anderson and teased, “Big mouth, big mouth, big mouth!”
Anderson also thanked me for being “so cool” with everything.
And I have to thank Jovovich. She told me I was “quite handsome.” Thankfully, it was dark enough that she couldn’t see me blush.
Don’t start thinking flattery will get you everywhere with me…But it will get you pretty far.
Now, back to the happy couple. Jovovich’s slight baby bump was barely visible. She was wearing a loose-fitting Jovovich-Hawk minidress and superhigh heels.
Even so, Jovovich says she’s put on 25 pounds in just the first four months of the pregnancy.
Her cravings? Steak and potatoes, spaghetti carbonara and Sprite! “I’ve been drinking Sprite like crazy,” Jovovich said. “Like, six cans a day.”
Anderson piped in, “We go through a case a day. I make a lot of trips to the kitchen.”
Their nuptials, however, have been put on hold. “We would love to, but maybe after the baby,” Jovovich said. “Because I don’t want to do, like, a white-trash wedding with a big belly.”
