The 38-year-old actress and her artist husband, 37, are already parents to twin boys Cy Aridio and Bowie Ezio Perego-Saldana. The twin cuties were born in November 2014. The happy announcement has taken Hollywood by surprise as the notoriously private Avatar actress had not appeared to be pregnant when out and about Los Angeles in the past couple of months.

Zoe and husband Marco are now parents of three

But one thing’ for sure, the addition of an extra child to her family is something the star will take in her stride. In September 2015 Zoe told HELLO! online that the adaptation to being a mum had come quite easily to her. She described her new role as "fun", although she did admit that "when you have twins, you get overwhelmed quite easily and really quickly," she said. "I guess I was surrounded by way too many mums who are always like, 'Oh, I got it so hard.' And my sister was always like, 'It's a piece of cake. It's super awesome,'" the actress said. "So I stuck with her, and it's fun."
