Malin Akerman is pregnant with her first child.

Stunning actress Malin Akerman has reason to smile. The "Watchmen" star is expecting her first child with Roberto Zincone, her first husband since 2007. Malin has been pregnant for three months, and she seems to be getting used to the odd cravings. "It's kind of like when you are hungover," said the actress. "But it's that kind of feeling where you want to eat everything greasy…so the diet is great, I love it." This happy event caps a great summer for the Swedish star, who appeared with Tom Cruise in the hit movie "Rock of Ages." How much do you know about this talented beauty? Here are a few things you might not know about this mom-to-be.

She doesn't mind being naked on screen

When it comes to shooting nude scenes, many actresses are shy. However, that doesn't apply to Malin. She has appeared in the buff in several movies, including the Ben Stiller comedy "The Heartbreak Kid." Malin has gone on record to say that there is nothing wrong with nudity, and that it actually helps the quality of a film. "I spent a lot of time as a child in Sweden, it's natural there," she once said. "I don't know many women who go to bed with their husband at night and have sex with a bra on, do you? So let's make it real in the movies."

She has dyslexia

Milan is a brilliant woman and is fluent in several languages, but she has a hard time learning her lines. In a 2010 interview, she revealed that dyslexia was the reason behind that. "I'm highly dyslexic, so it takes me a long time to learn lines," she said in a 2010 interview. "I get horrified when I have to do table reads with the whole cast, because there's a lot of stuttering coming from me, so I have to do a lot of prep." As a result of this, the star is a big fan of improvising her lines.

She met her husband while they were in a band

Malin and Roberto can share a pretty charming story of how they met once their baby is a little older. The two were both members of a band called the Petalstones about 10 years ago, with Malin singing and Roberto playing the drums. Her music career didn't take off, but she did find true love after spending time with her future husband after practice. Early in the relationship, the two took an English dictionary with them on their dates because Roberto couldn't speak the language.
