36-year-old Saldana and 34-year-old Perego got married in a secret low-profile wedding ceremony in London back in 2013 and the actress announced in August the great news of her pregnancy. The “Guardians of The Galaxy” star also talked about some possible baby names when she visited “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 are like Oh my god, people, chill – We are kind of hippie, we want it to be like Lavender” the actress joked.
Zoe Saldana has starred in successful movies like “The Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl“, “Star Trek” and its sequel “Star Trek: Into Darkness” as well as James Cameron’s “Avatar“.
Congratulations to the new parents!
