Jena Malone is engaged to her boyfriend Ethan DeLorenzo.
The 31-year-old actress, who is best known for her portrayal of Johanna Mason in the “The Hunger Games” film series, announced their engagement on Instagram on Tuesday, Aug. 30.
“One day , after all the youthful rushing quiets in your heart, you realize there's nothing more you need,” Malone wrote on the social media site, along with a pic of her hand holding her 3-month-old son Ode Mountain, whom she shares with DeLorenzo. “Nothing more you want to achieve than to build your life around love.”
“And oh the things we will get to build together. I couldn’t be happier. I love you Ethan," continued the Nevada-born thespian, who ended her post with the hashtag "#isaidyes.”
Although Malone’s fiancé works in the music industry, most people are not familiar with him. Here’s a list of things we know about DeLorenzo.
1. He’s a record producer.
DeLorenzo produced music for the indie record label Decadent Wreckords. His works as a record producer can be seen in his SoundCloud account.
2. He previously worked at the Cutting Room Studios.
According to his LinkedIn page, DeLorenzo worked as a recording engineer at the Cutting Room Studios from August 2009 to May 2010.
3. He was a band member for Chris Brown.
Bustle noted that for two years, DeLorenzo worked as a member of the band that played for Chris Brown.
4. He’s a freelance photographer.
5. He’s originally from Pennsylvania.
DeLorenzo was born in West Hazleton, a small coal mining town in the state Pennsylvania.
“Growing up in a forgotten industrial town has led me to fill my many free hours lost in my imagination,” he told Impossible magazine in March. “At first photography and music were my tools for escapism. Over time they grew to become my passion. In recent years they have become my profession.”
DeLorenzo told Standard Speaker in February that he packed his bags, said goodbye to his family and moved to Brooklyn, N.Y., on the very evening of his 2009 graduation from Hazleton Area High School. After traveling around the country, he now finds himself living happily in Northern California with his own family.
