Why Zoe Saldana Doesn’t Want Invites to Playdates for her Kids.


Zoe Saldana doesn’t want you to invite her and her kids over your house for a play date. Well, if you were friends of hers and had kids close to age as hers and were so inclined anyway.



The Guardians of the Galaxy star declared that she wouldn’t want her twin boys Cy and Bowie to be restricted.

“Our kids are free,” the Avatar actress told PEOPLE magazine.  “We’re rambunctious. We’re a loud family, and we don’t stop from 5 a.m. to 9 p.m. And literally, we just don’t have any play dates. You can always come to our house, our doors are open. But we don’t ever want them to be exposed to negligence, or to someone getting angry with them for just being boys.”



Saldana and her husband Marc Perego recently welcomed a third child, son Zen, to the family. She rarely shows photos of the boys’ face on her social media accounts, similar to how Beyonce, Kerry Washington, Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds and other celebs have shielded their kids from public scrutiny and maintain the privacy of their kids who did not ask to be born into stardom. We can respect that, right?

Britney Spears outed Zoe Saldana’s Twin Pregnancy


In 2014, Zoe Saldana and her husband, Marco Perego, welcomed twin boys, Bowie and Cy. During an interview this week on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen, Saldana revealed that her friend and former costar, Britney Spears, outed her pregnancy to the press before she and her husband were ready to share the news, People reports.

The Crossroads costars met on an airplane and spent the flight catching up, Saldana said.

“We were on the same flight from L.A. to New York and we just talked for the duration of the flight,” she explained. “She has two boys , I was having twins — and we had a beautiful talk. And I forgot — it never even occurred to me to not to say anything. We weren’t trying to hide it, we were just trying to be discreet.”

A few days later, Spears was asked during an interview with Entertainment Tonight if she and Saldana might work together again someday and the baby news came out.

“Who knows? That’s a very good idea. But she’s pregnant with twins right now. So I’m sure she’s got a huge future ahead of her,” Spears said during the interview.

So Zoe Saldana Low Key Just Had Another Baby


Zoe Saldana is definitely up there in terms of one of the most private celebs. Like she low-key had another baby and only just announced the news this morning on her Instagram.

“Marco and I are elated to share the news of the birth of our son Zen. We couldn’t feel more blessed with the new addition to our family. #threeboys… oh boy!” the Guardians of the Galaxy star captioned a photo of her twin boys Cy and Bowie hovering over their little brother.

No one ever saw her pregnant but that doesn’t mean she wasn’t.

This week, she appeared at the launch of her Confidential magazine winter issue cover photo at 3033 Wilshire on Thursday, February 16, 2017 in Los Angeles, California.

She wore a long black dress which could be shielding her post partum bump.


And last month, there was virtually no belly at all evidenced by the white long sleeve sweater and white skirt she wore to the Los Angeles premiere of  her latest project Live By Night at the TCL Chinese Theatre, Hollywood, CA on January 9, 2017. That film opened on January 13.


It could be that the baby was born a while ago and she is only just announcing it today or the baby arrived via gestational surrogate or adoption. No news yet.

Saldana and her husband Marc Perego welcomed the twins on November 27, 2014 but didn’t announce the news until a couple of months later. And while the Avatar star frequently shares photos of her boys on her Instagram account, she has never shown their faces.

She may be the Queen of Low Key.

Zoe Saldana Says She Missed Her Twins When She Returned to Work, ‘Real Moms’ Promptly Shame her

zoe saldana

Was reading an article in PEOPLE magazine about Zoe Saldana and how she said she cried everyday when she left her twins Cy and Bowie with her husband Marc Perego while filming Star Trek Beyond last summer. Saldana gave birth to the boys

“The first week back at work, I think I cried every day in my trailer,” she told the magazine exclusively. “But I remember as soon as they would tell me ‘We’re ready for you on set,’ I would still skip to set. I love what I do.”

It’s great when you get to do what you love, while still having the human and maternal emotion to miss your babies.

Because I am a glutton for punishment, I ran down to the comments and was quite shock to see comments from so many women who had no sympathy for her because she is a rich celebrity.

“Zoe seems like a nice woman and I wish her, her husband and her boys the best,” a commenter named Meena penned. “However, while I am sure it was hard to go back to work, Zoe had options. Most women go back to work because they have to. So, it is hard for me to relate to someone who could never work a day again in her life and the lights would still be on and the food would still be on the table.”

Another echoed similar sentiments.

“I think she most likely is a lovely person. However, she probably doesn’t HAVE to work,” another commenter named Sarah replied. “Some moms leave their 6 month olds because if they don’t, there is no grocery money or coins for the laundry, or house insurance, etc. Literally. She works because she loves it, and that’s great. But she doesn’t HAVE NO CHOICE but to go to work. Personally, if I had that much money, I’d never leave my kids at that age. Work to live, not live to work. My 2 cents.”

I was glad to read a few empathetic ones come to her aid and relay my feelings on the matter.

“Wow you guys are so mean! So what if she’s filthy rich…that doesn’t change the fact that ALL moms miss their babies when they go back to work, or leave them for a short amount of time. This mom shaming crap has got to stop!” Tam stated.

And I think Hea hit it on the money, when she wrote:

She has a contract so she has to work. Same as everybody else who’s employed. Hollywood and the entertainment business depend on actors and actresses performing. I for one appreciate that my favorite performers stay in the business despite having kids. I take great pleasure in their work and I appreciate their talents and efforts.

So sweet! Congrats!
