AceShowbiz - Ashley Greene has a unique pet name for her growing baby bump. Months after announcing that she and her husband Paul Khoury are expecting their first child together, the actress famous for her portrayal of Alice Cullen in the "Twilight" film series jokingly called her baby bump an alien.
In one of Instagram photos she shared on Tuesday, June 7, Ashley was seen wearing a cropped white t-shirt and cradling her belly. Taken from below, both pictures displayed her baring the bump. Along with it, she wrote in the caption, "It's an alien." She added a green alien emoji and hashtag #babyontheway behind her message.
Ashley's Tuesday post also let out another snap that showed the "Bombshell" actress throwing her hands in the air, proudly exposing her bare bump to the world. She could be seen smiling widely while looking down to the camera below.
The 35-year-old's "alien" post has since gained over 100,000 likes, and was flooded not only with congratulatory, but also cheeky comments from her fans. One Instagram user wrote, "If it is a baby girl would you name her Alice?" Another one piped in, "And if it's a boy? Jasper?"
Regardless, Ashley was so excited to welcome her first child together with her TV personality husband. When announcing her pregnancy back in March, she wrote on an Instagram post, "I love you more than I've ever loved anything and somehow my heart just keeps expanding to love you EVEN more. I cannot wait to watch you share your light, love, and passion with our baby."
On adding a little one to her family, Ashley has previously told PEOPLE, "My husband and I are both kind of like, it's going to happen. And trust me, we're at the point where both of our parents are hinting, and they're like, 'Okay, we're ready. You guys have been married a couple of years now.' "
Ashley and Paul tied the knot in July 2018. Their wedding ceremony took place at Nestldown, San Jose, California, and was attended by family members and friends, including Liam Hemsworth, Zac Efron, Brittany Snow, Ashlee Simpson and Evan Ross.
