There aren’t many women in this world that can make the claim that the great loves of their life were born of Resident Evil.

Unless you’re Milla Jovovich, and that makes it a different story. The actress and model met her husband, Paul W.S. Anderson, while shooting the first film of the franchise in 2002.

As the movie vaulted her further into stardom, it also vaulted her into marriage and motherhood, and Jovovich marvels at the life that the “T-Virus” has brought to her.

“I think that the franchise has definitely made me who I am today,” she told PEOPLE while attending the Chanel No. 5 L’eau launch dinner at the Sunset Towers in Los Angeles on Thursday night. “And I have two kids and an amazing husband because of it. I think that I’ve definitely become a stronger person through it.”

You can take the girl out of Russia, but you can’t take the Russia out of the girl.

Milla Jovovich is finding the beauty in stepping away from modern-day motherhood and going back to basics.

And there are no better role models for the simple lifestyle than mothers in third-world countries, the actress says in an interview with Romy & the Bunnies.

“I feel that the connection with children and mothers is so strong in places where there are not so many ‘things’ to get in the way,” Jovovich, 39, says.

“No electronic distraction devices, no high-tech baby equipment, just a mother carrying her little one everywhere, sharing a family bed and having the help of all the other women around to raise the baby.”

Milla Jovovich‘s daughter got her wish: She’s getting a baby sister!

“We’re actually having a girl so she’s so excited,” the actress, 38, told PEOPLE Wednesday at amFAR’s Fifth Annual Inspiration Gala in Los Angeles.

The news that Jovovich’s second child with Paul W.S. Anderson will be another daughter came as a big relief to the mom-to-be, who admits she was unsure the couple’s firstborn, Ever Gabo, would take well to having a brother.

“I was actually worried if we had a boy, what would happen to him,” she says with a laugh. “I was like, ‘I wonder how long he will survive in our house with that little girl pushing him and sticking her foot out and tripping him!'”
