Zoe Saldana Discusses How She Lost The Twin Baby Weight
Zoe Saldana looks amazing after giving birth to her twins Bowie and Cy. In 2013, Saldana began dating Italian artist Marco Perego and they were married in June 2013. Saldana gave birth to the couples twin sons in November 2014.
When she appeared on the red carpet at the Oscar’s people were blown away because she was sporting a form-fitting beautiful Versace dress with Neil Lane jewels. The 36-year-old’s stylist worked it out so that her dress was custom-made and Zoe told Us Weekly.
“They have dressed other new moms before and they basically said, ‘Okay. Just give us the measurements. It’s going to be fierce,'” Saldana explained. “This blush [dress] just completely blew us all away. And I felt so beautiful. I was like, ‘Okay! I can do this.’”
She credited breastfeeding and healthy eating for weight loss in her interview with Us Weekly:
“Oh God. Breastfeeding!” Saldana credited to the reason behind her slim-down. “And just eating very healthy because I have to feed two babies. Just when you think you’re done feeding one, the other one is like, ‘I’m here!’ ‘Oh! You too? Okay here you go.’
“So Bowie’s Bowie and Cy is definitely Cy. And we know their cries; it’s bizarre,” Saldana said. “Everybody’s asking us when we’re in the house, ‘Whose that?’ And we say, ‘Oh it’s Bowie.’ ‘Oh it’s Cy.’ And we know exactly what they mean, so it’s fantastic.”
Best of all, she doesn’t even mind her new early schedule. “And 4 a.m. never felt better. To wake up at that time! We love it,” she said while smiling at her husband Perego.
The superwoman mommy is also a super successful actress and has had roles in films Center Stage, Crossroads, Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl, Star Trek, and Guardians of the Galaxy just to name a few.
