After months of speculation, Saldana confirmed in July 2014 that she and husband Marco Perego were expecting.
Saldana married the Italian artist in London in July 2013 and told The Hollywood Reporter last year, “I’ve known my partner for five years. I knew of his work. I knew of him. Then we met. And months later, we both made the decision to do what we both individually vowed never to do — to get married.
