Malin Akerman is pregnant with her first child.

The 'Rock of Ages' actress and her husband of five years Roberto Zincone - drummer in her former band The Petalstones - are expecting a child together, her representative has confirmed to USMagazine.com.

It is not known how far along she is in the pregnancy or what the sex of the baby is.

Speaking previously, Malin admitted she and her husband very rarely argued and always worked out their problems

She said: "We rarely bicker. We'll sort of fume at each other and then we'll figure it out.

We've had some really great experiences. When I was shooting 'Couples Retreat' in Bora Bora, he came out there and it was like a honeymoon that we never had.

"We get really lucky and we make it work."

The Swedish-born actress has a number of big movie roles coming up in the future, including 'Inferno: A Linda Lovelace Story' - where she plays the leading character - and films including 'Breacher', 'Trophy Wife', 'Wildwood Inn' and 'Serpent Girl'.
