"I'm about three months now," revealed the actress, according to Us Weekly. "It's just the beginning!"
The child will be the first for both Akerman and Zincone, who was the drummer in her former alternative rock band called The Petalstones.
Though the pregnancy is "so new and early," Akerman said she craves "the most random things- fries and grilled cheese sandwiches, and everything that's bad for you," according to the magazine.
"But it tastes so good," she added.
Akerman noted that she and her husband of five years "absolutely" wanted children and that the pregnancy was "kind of planned."
"We took the goalie out of the net and said, 'Let's see what happens,'" explained Akerman. "Because you never know how long it's going to take. We got lucky."
Also, the "Rock of Ages" star said that their marriage is a strong one, according to Us Weekly.
"We barely bicker," said Akerman, 34, of she and Zincone. "We'll sort of fume at each other and then we'll figure it out."
Moreover, the "Wanderlust" star said she and her drummer husband makes the most of working on different locations while she is working on films.
"We've had some really good experiences," said Akerman. "When I was shooting ["Couple's Retreat"] in Bora Bora, he came out there and it was like a honeymoon that we never had. We get really lucky and we make it work."
