Congratulations are in order for Zoe Saldana and her husband Marco Perego, who have recently announced the birth of their third child and third baby boy. They were spotted whisking their bundle of joy away from Cedars-Sinai Hospital in Los Angeles early last week.

On Sunday (February 19th 2017), the 'Guardians of the Galaxy' actress unveiled a photo of her 2-year-old twin boys playing alongside a tiny new arrival who was lying on his stomach on a cushion as one of the boys stroked his head. The actress named her newborn Zen; a term associated with peaceful meditation.

'Marco and I are elated to share the news of the the birth of our son Zen', she told her followers on Instagram, six days after she was seen leaving the hospital. 'We couldn't feel more blessed with the new addition to our family. #threeboys... oh boy!'

Zen joins brothers Bowie Ezio and Cy Aridio, who were born in November 2014 - nearly a year and a half after Zoe and her Italian artist partner Marco got married in London following just three months of dating. The pair took each other's surnames, making them Zoe Saldana-Perego and Marco Perego-Saldana.

Zoe seems thrilled over her happy news, but we do hope that her recovery is speedier than that which followed her first birth. It took a lot longer than three months to start to feel normal and get her body back into shape after gaining 70 pounds. 'You have to remind yourself that everything takes time', she told US Weekly at the time. 'I definitely took a break and trusted that my body was going to bounce back when it was ready. I never wanted to push myself.'

She also confessed on Facebook that 'everything from my thyroid to my platelets crashed'. 'I'm not gonna lie - it is slow... painful... and frustrating', she said. 'But it is worth it.'
