Zoe Saldana Is Pregnant With First Child

Zoe Saldana is pregnant with her first child. We knew the rumours were true!

Premiere Of Marvel's

The actress and her artist husband Marco Perego are officially expecting their first baby, it's been confirmed.

The Guardians of the Galaxy star's publicist confirmed the pregnancy Wednesday, though Zoe has been seen sporting a baby bump for the last few weeks.

This week she made no attempt to conceal her growing tummy as she hit the LA premiere of her new flick.

Zoe and Marco are said to have secretly tied the knot last summer, with mum-to-be Zoe telling People: "We found each other, and it was that desire and not that necessity that put us together."

The announcement comes as the 31-year-old admitted she tried her very best to talk her husband out of getting her face tattooed on his arm. He didn't listen.

"It was the most romantic thing," she told People. "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."

The question is would you really want to look at your face day in day out drawn on to the body of your other half?

We're not sure we'd be game.

And what's to happen if - dare we say it? - their marriage doesn't last? Will he do a Katie Price and simply have a big ol' cross tattooed across it? Will he keep if for the memories? Or will he have to go through the excruciating process of having it removed?
