Zoe Saldana plans to ''slow down'' when she gives birth to her twins in eight weeks.

The 'Book of Life' star, who is expecting two baby boys with her husband Marco Perego, says she is looking forward to a break from her busy schedule, as she wants to breastfeed her children.

The 36-year-old actress said: ''I might need to slow down to breast-feed.''

Meanwhile, Marco thinks Zoe looks more beautiful than ever and is being very protective of her since she entered her third trimester.

An insider said: ''He won't let her go anywhere without him.''

The artist even accompanied the actress to a press conference for her latest movie earlier this month and waited by the door until she was finished.

The source added to Us Weekly magazine: ''He couldn't take his eyes off her.''

The couple, who were friends for years before they started dating last year, tied the knot in a secret ceremony in London in June 2013.

She previously said: ''As soon as we decided we were going to get married, we didn't wait. We did it three weeks later. That part was very, very quick.''

She added: ''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.''
