The actress made the announcement Monday, Aug. 18 on Facebook.

Jovovich's husband also happens to be the director of the film and they have decided to delay shooting for the newest film in the franchise until after their baby arrives.

"Between the stunt work and what will become my ever-expanding belly, we didn't think pregnancy and zombie killing are the best combo! Lol!" Jovovich added. "I imagine the only thing I'll be killing in the near future is an endless supply of cupcakes. Yikes…

"In all seriousness though, we want to make the best movie possible and that would be extremely difficult, to say the least, in my present condition."

Resident Evil fans take their franchise seriously and will likely be upset at the delay. But, hopefully, this time they will give Jovovich a break and let her be pregnant in peace.

Other action stars have taken different paths when dealing with pregnancies. Scarlett Johansson was reportedly pregnant before filming even began on The Avengers: Age of Ultron and producers decided to cast some body doubles — at least for the stunts in the film.

"We're not avoiding any of the danger because the stuntwomen do the danger — as has always been the case," Joss Whedon told Entertainment Weekly at the time. "She's very central to the movie and when we heard [about the pregnancy] we scheduled things around that. She's not going to spend the whole movie carrying groceries. We didn't trim any scenes. We're like: We'll make it work."

Jovovich and Anderson have been married since 2009. They also have a daughter, Ever Gabo Anderson, who was born in 2007.
