It’ll Be Twin Boys for Zoë Saldana

10/14/2014 at 06:30 PM ET

Call it déjà vu: Zoë Saldana‘s world is about to turn blue.

The Avatar actress is expecting twin boys with her husband Marco Perego, PEOPLE confirms.

“She is beside herself happy over it all,” a source says of Saldana, who attended The Book of Life premiere in an Altuzarra printed dress from their spring line.

Saldana, 36, and Perego have been preparing for the pending arrivals and were recently spotted stocking up on essentials for their sons at Bel Bambini.

And although the mom-to-be has remained mum throughout much of her pregnancy, she recently hinted that she is experiencing double the joy, joking she would need to triple up on her Halloween costume collection.

“I might have to make some adjustments,” the Guardians of the Galaxy star said.

E! Online reported the news Monday.

Yay for Mommy & Daddy! Congrats!

Diamondgirl on

Congrats!!

Margo on

In my head, I can envision their offspring looking a lot like that hottie thug from earlier this year. He has striking features and she has the beautiful colors.

Karys on

Woo, gurl … Get all the rest/sleep you can before those precious baby boys are born, because they’re gonna wear you out on a daily basis until they hit middle school, LOL! j/k Congrats to Zoe and Marco and I wish her nothing but the best for a healthy (rest of her) pregnancy and childbirth.

lola on

Congrats and best wishes for healthy babies, but PLEASE think carefully about what names you will give to your sons!! They will have to live with them FOREVER. Thinking of something different…..get a pet and give it that name.

Casey on

LOL at Lola’s funny but true comment!

kickit on

deja vu refers to the feeling that you’ve been somewhere when you actually haven’t been there. So the reference here is inaccurate. She was blue in some movie? And why do baby boys have to mean blue? What a sickening and outdated stereotype. her world is about to turn blue? I don’t think so. She will have children, and their eyes probably won’t be blue, but whatever. Let’s hope their skin isn’t blue

Pobrecita!
She comes from all girls- this wlill be interesting.

Me on

Very cool…they will be lookers. Congrats🙂

Mom Of Twinz on

Congratulations!

Karenna on

@alex…it’s the sperm from the dad that determines the sex of the baby…so her coming from all girls does not matter. Genetics 101.

KW on

Stocking up on “essentials” from Bel Bambino? How about just buying “luxury items”. Get real, People.

kc on

@Karenna If you read Alex’s comment right and reading comprehension skills, you’d see how Alex said it will be interesting. That means that because she came from all girls, it will be interesting that she has sons as in a change for her.

She looks so beautiful in this picture. I love her dress – soft and pretty. It’s so nice to see a pregnant woman who is not in a skin-tight, stick to their belly dress.

I guess it’s like, a thing for black women to have twin boys. I can think of a few. Hmm. Interesting.

Anne on

That’s true, anonymous. Black women actually do have a higher rate of fraternal twins than any other race.

Maria on

He is with her for the money looking at her it is apparent there can be no other reason.

Mel on

Aww congrats to her. I just has my son 4 weeks ago and boys are just too cute!

charlotte on

Wow, not one, but TWO gorgeous boys! Lucky them. Congratulations!!

Anonymous on

They are going to be a couple of good looking babies.

Lily on

Aww, Maria are you having a bad day? Did typing that nasty comment make you feel better about yourself? I hope it did🙂 Chin up, hun! Feel better and have a fantastic day!

Ginger on

Congrats to the happy family!

Melissa on

Congrats! A lot of hard work ahead!

Lily on

Ha! Monica/Maria😉 I would tell you look up the word sarcasm but from your comprehension level I can tell all those big words would exhaust you. So here goes: Sarcasm: the use of irony to mock or convey contempt.

I realize you were confused before. LOL. And just to be clear, have a FANTASTIC day. Get it? 😉

Maria- Could be…or maybe, just maybe, he fell in love with her beautiful personality. Not everybody cares about looks, you know (also, beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and just because she isn’t good-looking to you doesn’t mean she isn’t beautiful to him!)!🙂

KW- Actually, Bel Bambini DOES carry plenty of the basics (cribs, changing tables, high chairs, etc.).

Hernandez on
