It’s certainly been a big summer for Zoe Saldana. The 36-year-old actress is pregnant and reportedly expecting twins with husband Marco Perego and she’s been keeping busy promoting her latest flick, Guardians of the Galaxy, which hits theaters August 1.
Saldana also graces the August 2014 cover of The Hollywood Reporter magazine, looking ever so gorgeous in a gold Altuzarra dress, Alexander McQueen bracelets, 14-karat gold lightning bolt earrings and Christian Louboutin heels.
In her interview, she addressed the rumor that she and Perego only knew each other a month before tying the knot.
"No! I've known my partner for five years. I knew of his work. I knew of him. Then we met. And months later, we both made the decision to do what we both individually vowed never to do — to get married," she said.
"Why get married?" Saldana continued. "Because I believe in love? Because I don't want my kids to be called bastards?" she continued. "No. Those reasons are not natural to me. Maybe for tax reasons I would have done it."
But then she met Perego and he completely changed her mind about marriage.
"And as soon as we decided we were going to get married, we didn't wait. We did it three weeks later. That part was very, very quick."
Saldana has yet to share the happy baby news herself, but we're elated about it nonetheless. We're sure she's going to be such a cute mommy and can't wait to see and share her maternity style over the coming months.
