On Sunday, Zoe Saldana revealed on Instagram that she and husband, Marco Perego have welcomed an addition to their family. The actress shared that they now have a third child whom they named Zen.
“Marco and I are elated to share the news of the birth of our son Zen,” the Guardians of the Galaxy star wrote. “We couldn’t feel more blessed with the new addition to our family. #threeboys… oh boy!”
Her caption was accompanied by a picture of her and Perego’s twin sons, Cy and Bowie on a play mat with their little brother. Saldana gave birth to their older kids more than two years ago. However, the shot didn’t show the children’s faces clearly.
Last week, the couple were seen leaving Cedars-Sinai Hospital in Los Angeles with their newborn son.
However, the Star Trek actress didn’t give further details about the secret arrival of their new son. Also, she did not announce any pregnancy news nor look pregnant since before she had her twins in 2014.
Saldana is particularly private about her personal life. Although she has occasionally shared photos of her kids on social media, she has decided to keep their faces out of sight.
The 38 year-old actress was last seen in public only a couple of days ago. She attended a party for Los Angeles Confidential. She is featured on the cover of their winter issue.
Also, Saldana was at the premiere of the gangster thriller Live by Night in January. In the movie, she plays the role of a business partner and wife to Affleck’s rum-running character. She graced the red carpet with her Italian artist husband.
Saldana and 37 year-old Perego got married in 2013. After more than a year of marriage, she gave birth to her twins. Afterwards, Saldana spoke about her physical challenges. Not only did she gain 70 pounds, but she shared “everything from my thyroid to my platelets crashed” when her twins came.
The American celebrity said she worked out with a trainer to get back into shape for her impending movie roles. “I’m not gonna lie — it is slow…. painful… and frustrating. But it is worth it,” the actress revealed.
