‘We’re naming him after my husband’s father who passed away when he was really young,’ she told Access. ‘Bringing it back around.’ 

Suvari is currently making the press rounds to promote her new thriller, Don’t Tell a Soul.

During a chat with Us Weekly, the expectant mom dished about what her pregnancy has been like, revealing that things have been going smoothly so far.

‘It’s wild. It’s very surreal. I sometimes don’t have words for it,’ she told the outlet.

'We're naming him after my husband's father [Christopher Alexander] who passed away when he was really young,' she told Access. 'Bringing it back around.'

Mena explained that her first trimester was the strangest for her because she needed to adjust to her new cravings – or rather the foods she didn’t crave anymore. 

‘I would have these moments where I would buy all these things that I loved eating and I would open up the fridge, it’s full of food, and I’m like, “I don’t want any of it,”‘ she reflected.

Mena first revealed the exciting news that she was expecting in October and has been documenting her growing baby bump on social media ever since.

The 41-year-old American Beauty actress shared with People that she is having a son and it has been a dream of hers for years to become a mother. 

‘It’s all I ever wanted for years!’ shared the blonde beauty at the time. ‘It’s still this process for me of believing it and accepting that something this beautiful could happen for me,’ she told the magazine.

‘It’s been a very emotional experience. It’s very weird finding out — I was like, I can’t believe it!’ She also said that she and her spouse had been trying to conceive for a long time.

‘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,’ she said.

And she worried about her age. ‘I’m 41 and there’s this air of like, I’ve got one foot in the grave and good luck,’ she said.

Mena is now happy as can be in her 30th week of pregnancy and will give birth to her son in the spring.
