Actress Zoe Saldana gave birth to twin boys on Nov. 27, her rep confirmed to Us Weekly. The 36-year-old and her husband, artist Marco Perego, have welcomed twin boys, Cy Aridio and Bowie Ezio Perego-Saldana,” her rep said in a statement.
They were born Thursday, November 27th in Los Angeles. Mother and sons are happy and healthy. Zoe and Marco are so grateful to all of the fans for their incredible support and beautiful wishes. The family is also appreciative of the respect of their privacy during this exciting time.
The twins are the first children for Saldana and her artist husband Perego, who married in a secret ceremony in London in 2013.
Rumors of the “Guardians of the Galaxy” star’s pregnancy first surfaced in July, but she waited until her ALS Ice Bucket Challenge video in August to officially announce the exciting news.
Saldana discussed potential baby names when she stopped by “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” in October:
“My husband is very Italian and I am very Latina so every day we have messages from our parents that are just like ‘Oh, it should be Rocco, Giovanni, Luigi, Antonio Ramon Jose. And you’re like, ‘Oh my god, people, chill.’ We’re kind of hippie, we want it to be like Lavender,” she joked.
Congratulations to the new parents!
