Zoe Saldana is expecting her first child with husband Marco Perego, a source revealed to Us Weekly.

"Zoe is about three months pregnant," said the source. "But she will only announce the news when she's ready."

Another insider says the Guardians of the Galaxy actress and Italian artist Perego, 35, can't wait to be parents.

"Zoe has always wanted a big family," the second source says, "and Marco's on board too!"

The mom-to-be must be very excited to expand her family. She recently revealed to People that her marriage to Perego has helped her overcome some personal issues and has grounded her.

Confidence issues have plagued the young actress for years and she often found herself trying to please others at the expense of her own personal welfare.

“I hate the sensation that you have when you get home and you think, ‘I’m a coward. I didn’t speak up. I didn’t defend myself. I didn’t say no,’” she explained. “I wanted to please others more than I wanted to please myself, and I [would] find myself embarrassed to look in the mirror.”

Those days are slowly but surely becoming a thing of the past for the Rosemary's Baby actress.

“I promised myself, by my own will, that I’m not going to do it anymore,” she said.

The Avatar actress said she is completely focused on her own happiness and marriage to Perego.

“We found each other, and it was that desire and not that necessity that put us together,” she said.

“I’m where I wanted to be when I would look at myself and say, ‘I just have a feeling that it’s going to get better, that I’m going to find who I truly am more and more, and I’m going to stick to that road,’” she continued.

“I’m very happy that it happened before I met him, because I didn’t want somebody to give me the answers that I should find for myself.”

Presumably, with a new baby in the mix, the New Jersey native will have another reason to focus on her family and well-being.
