Mina Suvari gives birth to her first child from husband Michael Hope

American actress Mina Suvary confirmed that she gave birth to her first child from her husband Michael Hope earlier this month.

The parents named their child Alexander Hope.

“The child and the mother are in very good health,” Suvari’s agent confirmed to People magazine.

Suvary, the 42-year-old star of “Romer Has It” and “American Beauty,” spoke to People magazine last year about her struggle to conceive.

The actress explained at that time that she was expecting pregnancy, but it did not happen when she was waiting for it, which caused her to feel exhausted and stressed.

She added that she learned that she was pregnant after she calmed down a bit and stopped focusing on pregnancy.

“I had to learn to deal differently with my appetite and sleep habits and not push myself to seek help – all of these things are difficult for an independent woman!” She said.

And although the couple, who married in 2018, hoped to build their family, Suvari admitted that the pregnancy was a surprise. Suvary and her husband Hope decided last year to actively begin trying to conceive – and what followed were months of emotional turmoil that were met with some kind of disappointment.

“I am 41 years old and there is always the feeling that I have grown a lot and close to death, and then the feeling of good luck and the possibility of pregnancy,” Suvari said at the time that the pressure was great because of her age, noting that Suvari back down from expecting pregnancy.

Suvari added that she was tired of focusing on the matter of pregnancy and thus feeling nervous and began to focus on her work, as she traveled to Georgia in mid-July to photograph artwork, and there was a surprise when she discovered that she was pregnant.

Stopping filming of the series “The King” and forming a committee to review it historically

The United Company for Media Services in Egypt announced that it has stopped filming the series “The King”, which has sparked great controversy and criticism recently, and that an urgent committee has been formed to review it and express an opinion on the validity of these criticisms.

Al-Mutahidah clarified in a statement that a committee will be formed from a group of “specialists in history, archeology, and sociology, to view what was filmed and review the entire scenario to express an objective and professional opinion about what was raised about the existence of historical inaccuracies, even if this results in not presenting it in the coming Ramadan.”

All the heroes of the work remained silent, at the request of the producer, while sources revealed to Al-Sharq within the producing company that the production cost of the work reached 40 million Egyptian pounds (about 630 million US dollars), and that the re-filming in the event the committee decided that there were serious mistakes May double the cost.

“The King” is taken from the novel “A Good Struggle” by the late international writer Naguib Mahfouz, and its events revolve around the story of King Ahmose and his struggle to liberate Egypt from the Hyksos.

Earlier, Dr. Zahi Hawass, the former Egyptian Minister of Antiquities, expressed his anger at the details of the series “The King” that appeared in the scenes of the advertisement, from the decoration to the costumes and weapons, describing them by saying: “All things are wrong.”

Hawass stressed to Al Sharq, the need to “be careful in implementing these types of works,” explaining that “the author has the right to use his imagination in the series he writes, but in this series, the situation is slightly different as it is a dramatic work whose events are inspired by historical stories.” .
