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.”
Many congratulations to Malin and Roberto on this amazing news!
Malin Akerman is now set to star in ABC‘s recently picked-up single-camera comedy pilot Trophy Wife, written and executive produced by Emily Halpern and Sarah Haskins and executive produced by Bad Teacher scribes Lee Eisenberg & Gene Stupnitsky. Akerman had been in negotiations for the lead in the project, which received a cast-contingent pilot order earlier this month. With her on board, the contingency is lifted, and the pilot will be heading to production. Trophy Wife was originally developed last season, and I hear ABC’s decision to give it a pilot order hinged on the producers being able to land Akerman.
Produced by ABC Studios, Trophy Wife centers on reformed party girl Kate (Akerman), who finds herself with an insta-family when she falls in love with a man with three manipulative kids and two judgmental ex-wives. The project reunites Akerman with ABC, where she starred in the comedy pilot Smart One this past season. Following a co-starring turn in Lisa Kudrow’s cult HBO series The Comeback, WME-repped Akerman has been focused primarily on features while being actively pursued for pilots. Her upcoming films include CBGB, The Numbers Station opposite John Cusack and Stolen with Nicolas Cage.
