    "The shape your desires make out of you. The body you become to hold your dreams," her caption says. "It's with two feet firmly on the ground and a heart swelling in an ocean of love that I'd like to share the new shape I am becoming to hold the greatest dream of them all. #babybump #newparents."
    Malone's musician boyfriend also posted a picture of her on his account with the caption "My family. @jenamalone and my child to be."
