Mena told People of the exciting news: ”It’s still this process for me of believing it and accepting that something this beautiful could happen for me.

”It’s been a very emotional experience. It’s very weird finding out — I was like, I can’t believe it!”

The baby boy is due in spring 2021.

As an “independent woman,” Mena said it’s been hard to learn to ask for help when she needs it as she goes through this new experience.

She added that she’s had to change her eating and sleeping habits along the way.

Though the couple started trying for a baby earlier this year, Mena was still surprised when she actually learned she was pregnant because of all of the months she took tests that came up negative.

The American Beauty star shared: ”I was recording my temperature every morning and peeing on these ovulation sticks.

“You expect that it’ll happen and it didn’t. I got to this place where I felt overwhelmed and stressed out.”

The mom-to-be added: “I’m 41 and there’s this air of like, I’ve got one foot in the grave and good luck.

“I was like, I can’t do this anymore. I’m so tired of stressing over this. I was trying to feel like if it’s meant, it’s meant, I was being really open like the Aquarian that I am — if this is my path or not.”

She ended up learning of her pregnancy while shooting a project in Georgia in July and taking a pregnancy test there after feeling symptoms for a couple of weeks.

Mena called the results “a huge surprise, an absolute miracle!”

For the first ultrasound appointment, the pregnant star and her husband were “so sad” to find out that he wasn’t going to be able to join her because of the coronavirus pandemic.

She was told by doctors that she had to wear a mask and had to go alone, but she was happy she could at least take videos during the visit.

Still, Mena said: “Obviously we know we do what we have to do, but it feels like you’re missing out. 

“Now we have our videos and those are good memories. At the end of the day, we’re very grateful.”
