Zoe Saldana confirmed Wednesday that she and her husband Marco Perego are expecting twins.

Zoe Saldana Confirms Twins

Saldana, 36, revealed that she was pregnant with not one, but two babies at the Hollywood Costume Exhibit at Los Angeles’ Wilshire May Company Building. When asked if she’ll be rocking her own costume for Halloween later this month, Saldana told E! News, “I might,” adding conspicuously, “I might need three costumes. I might have to make some adjustments, but it would be nice.”

While this is the first time on record that Saldana has alluded to carrying twins, her Crossroads costar Britney Spears let the news slip earlier this month while chatting with Entertainment Tonight. Spears, answering a question about whether or not there will ever be a Crossroads sequel, said, “Who knows? That's a very good idea. But she's pregnant with twins right now. So I'm sure she's got a huge future ahead of her."

"You're not ready,” said Spears, speaking of motherhood. “You don't know what you're in for."

Saldana confirmed her pregnancy following months of speculation when she passed her ALS Ice Bucket Challenge off to Perego, citing her pregnancy for why she couldn’t complete the challenge herself.

"I am accepting James Gunn's challenge to take on the ice bucket challenge. Obviously, I can't do it myself so I nominate my husband to take on the challenge," said Saldana while turning to the side to give the camera a good view of her baby bump.

Saldana and Perego secretly married in London in September 2013.
