Zoe Saldana is pregnant & Marco Perego tattooed Zoe’s face on his arm

Zoe Saldana

Zoe Saldana looked a little “bumpy” at Monday night’s Guardians of the Galaxy premiere. I didn’t mention it because no one cared about the grand pregnancy speculation a few weeks ago. And I figured Zoe didn’t want to discuss it yet. Now she does want to talk about it, sort of. To promote the movie? One of Zoe’s friends confirmed to Us Weekly that Zoe is three months pregnant, and she’s thrilled: “Zoe has always wanted a big family, and Marco’s on board too!” Marco’s manbun is on board, as it should be. Congrats are in order, and Zoe will soon join the ranks of celeb mothers who think they’re the first person to give birth.

This next part is more interesting to me. Zoe spoke with People on the red carpet. Topics of discussion included … Marco. He is so wonderful, and he tattooed Zoe’s face on his bod:

Her awful past relationships: “I hate the sensation that you have when you get home and you think, ‘I’m a coward. I didn’t speak up. I didn’t defend myself. I didn’t say no.’ I wanted to please others more than I wanted to please myself, and I [would] find myself embarrassed to look in the mirror. I promised myself, by my own will, that I’m not going to do it anymore.”

True love with Marco: “We found each other, and it was that desire and not that necessity that put us together. I’m where I wanted to be when I would look at myself and say, ‘I just have a feeling that it’s going to get better, that I’m going to find who I truly am more and more, and I’m going to stick to that road.’ I’m very happy that it happened before I met him, because I didn’t want somebody to give me the answers that I should find for myself.”

Perego tattooed Zoe’s face on his arm: “It was the most romantic thing! I didn’t stop him, but I did sort of try to talk him out of it. I’ve done crazier things than that, and I’m pretty sure he has, too.”

All that stuff about Zoe feeling disrespected by men is stuff she’s talked about already. Marco is a different type of guy than her exes. She was with her ex-fiancé for a decade. Then came the mess with BCoop. When she hooked up with Marco, she knew he was The One. I don’t judge their swift marriage, but I do judge a man who will tattoo their woman’s face on his body. Isn’t that a little creepy?

This is the cutest photo of Zoe & Marco with Valentina Pinault at Cannes.

Just for kicks, here’s Marco standing in front of his art in 2008. Is that Woody from Toy Story?

    Her husband may be scruffy, but he is GORGEOUS.

  2. Tiffany27 says:

    I think she’s a bit farther than 3 months. Congrats to them and the baby will be beautiful!

    • Brittaki says:

      I don’t understand the snarky tone in this article. Zoe hasn’t even mentioned her pregnancy and she answered a few questions about her new husband honestly; she’s not in our faces all the time blathering non-stop about what a special snowflake she is for getting married and having a baby a la Stacey Keibler. Let’s give her a break, shall we?

    • Lilacflowers says:

      @Tiffany2, she was on Kimmel the other night and I thought she looked about 4 months along. She was wearing a loose fitting black dress and looked lovely.

      • Candy Love says:

        I agree I saw another picture of her out with her mom and she looks about 4 months.

  3. MollyB says:

    Never thought I would say this about a man but . . . he looks better with the bun.

  4. Abbott says:

    Well, The Deaner got Tori’s face tattooed on his person and they’re still married!

  5. Ag says:

    i don’t understand the white belt (?) on her dress… but she’s lovely. congrats to them on the pregnancy!

  7. Scarlet Vixen says:

    Her husband looks like the love child of Johnny Depp & Jason Momoa. He has lovely skin, and they seem quite sweet together.

  8. Mel M says:

    Valentina is the spitting image of her father except for her coloring.

    • so says:

      My thoughts exactly. That’s really unfortunate to have such a gorgeous mother and to look nothing like her :/

      • MaiGirl says:

        Yup. It’s an Alexa Joel situation (although Alexa is uniquely pretty now that she has grown up).

  9. ashley says:

    I’m so happy for them! Glad she found the right guy for her,it’s so good loving somebody and you get the same in return. Her husband is so hot and handsome.

    • Emma - the JP Lover says:

      @Ashley ….

      Me too! She look SO happy. 🙂

      And she just rocks the short hair style above. She’s one of few women who can rock long or short hair.

    • Candy Love says:

      I agree I like the picture of them with Valentina they look so happy and cute in that one.

  10. Pants says:

    He’s very handsome, but I can’t deal with his hair. Either way, hope they’re happy!

  11. M says:

    Tattoo of face, nah wouldn’t want that.

    I don’t like Zoe, However, he is a cute guy and seems sweet.

  12. delorb says:

    I wonder how Bradley took her burgeoning bump? Oops. Wish them all the best.

  13. Flounder says:

    lol, I love the pink bead on his braid.

  14. The Original Mia says:

    Congrats! Though, it’s been pretty obvious that reed thin Zoe was pregnant. Her husband is cute. Here’s to a healthy baby!

  15. dsfd says:

    When someone is rich and famous I always worried the person they are with are with them for the wrong reasons. I’d like some input on this because how can you tell if you are with a person who really likes you and not your money or fame.

    • Poe says:

      People eventually lose the facade they portray to get the money. If a the celebrity or rich person is smart enough and not completely blinded, they will eventually see the person is in it for the money and fame.

      I would never marry for money or fame. I wouldn’t mind dating a few actors, but that’s because I do stage acting here and there, but I don’t know if I’d ever want or could handle to date someone huge and widely known. I like my privacy too much.

  16. Chocolate bunny says:

    Congrats, but she is so boring and basic. Nina Simone, NOT!

    • kri says:

      I’m happy for her-sounds like she realized some shit ain’t worth it. OHMYGODHEISGORGEOUS! Ok, that’s out of my system now. I had never seen him that clearly before.Whoa. He shuld have hot his own face on his arm. Congrats to them both.Btw, what is that she is wearing-is it some kind of arrow pointing toBabyland?

  17. Josefa says:

    I want to like Zoe, but the first thing I think of when reading her name is of that Nina Simone biopic. Sure, it wasn’t her fault to get casted, but putting on darker skin and a prosthetic nose? Just… no.

    Sucks, because other than that I really have nothing bad to say about her.

    • MaiGirl says:

      Totally agree. I can’t give her a pass because the whole thing was wrongheaded.

  18. serena says:

    Damn, he’s hot.

  19. Leaflet says:

    I like Zoe and am happy for her. I don’t understand why every moderator that posts something about Zoe always does so with a bit of shade, she’s a a great girl. And she has not even spoke on her pregnancy yet, and isn’t acting like she’s the first woman to be pregnant. Maybe some want to see things about Zoe that just simply aren’t there. Well, i’m not ashamed to say I like ya Zoe, lol. As far as the fashion goes, I’m going to say I love this dress. Wish I had a frontal shot though to be able to get a better assessment. I like that the dress is two-toned and the darker shade is on her lower half. I believe I may like her pregnancy fashion better than her regular fashion. I love Zoe’s hair as well because she looks good with both long and short hair. I think I will always be a fan of her loose hair waves. As for her hubby getting the tattoo on his arm..it’s a bit bizarre but he’s an artist, so I’ll understand.

  20. Camille (The Original) says:

    That will be one cute kid.

    Valentina looks exactly like her daddy! Spitting image.

  21. Mindy says:

    Does anyone think that Marco looks like Molly Sims with a beard???

  22. Lilacflowers says:

    Twins! She is having twins. That’s why she looks farther along.
