Zoe Saldana and husband Marco Perego, an Italian artist, secretly married in 2013, with Marco taking Zoe’s last name despite his wife’s warnings.

“I tried to talk him out of it. I told him, ‘If you use my name, you’re going to be emasculated by your community of artists, by your Latin community of men, by the world’. But Marco looks up at me and says [she puts on a cute Italian accent], ‘Ah, Zoe, I don’t give a sheet.”

This progressive move comes as a surprise for many, but the pair seem to be dealing well with it. In fact, they have other things on their mind as they have their hands full with two twin boys Zoe gave birth to last November.

The actress has been open about the changes pregnancy caused to her body as well as the expectations she has of her new figure.

“I don’t want to get back to where I used to be. I want to feel healthy, and not just fit into the old jeans I used to wear. I’m a woman now. My body has changed forever. It’s softer… and stronger.”
