Exciting news! Zoe Saldana and her husband Marco Perego are expecting their first child!
The Guardians of the Galaxy actress has been the center of baby rumors since making no attempt to hide her growing baby bump at the film’s premiere. However, it wasn’t until Wednesday, July 23 that Saldana’s publicist confirmed the news to The Hollywood Reporter.
The happy couple, who got married in England last summer, have not commented on the news, but sources have revealed that they can’t wait to be parents. “Zoe is about three months pregnant,” the source said. “But she will only announce the news when she’s ready.”
“Zoe has always wanted a big family,” a second source said, “and Marco’s on board, too!”
Recently, Saldana spoke to People Magazine about her marriage and her struggle to accept her image. “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 said. “I wanted to please others more than I wanted to please myself, and I [would] find myself embarrassed to look in the mirror.”
Saldana explained that that all changed when she learned to embrace herself in her 30s. “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 said. “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.”
