The couple have been together since 2002 when Milla starred in the first of six Resident Evil films, which have been mostly written and directed by Paul. And their little girl Ever, who is seven, will be thrilled to have a sister. Ahead of the birth, the Hollywood beauty revealed that Ever had been telling her not to buy any new clothes, "not because she's jealous, but because she wants to share. She keeps saying, 'Don't get anything new. She can wear all my clothes'. She's so economical."

Milla kept fit right up until the last weeks of her pregnancy because she is filming two movies this summer, one which is the sixth and final chapter of Resident Evil.

Her exercise regime included walking 12,000 steps a day as advised by her personal trainer, which in practice meant that the actress was hiking six miles daily into her last trimester. The 38-year-old also ate a diet of fresh vegetables, chicken and pitta bread, with only the odd cheat days when her husband took her out for a meal.

To give her support, 50-year-old Paul has been hiking along with Milla and their dogs. On Valentine's Day, he also bought her a beautiful bunch of flowers. Milla posted a picture of her beautiful gift on instagram, telling followers "Feeling pretty special today. (These are) my amazing flowers from my gorgeous husband."
