Zoe Saldana Gives Birth to Twin Boys

It seems actress Zoe Saldana gave birth to twin boys this past week in Los Angeles, according to some close friends who congratulated her on Twitter and Instagram!

Friend and fashion designer Prabal Gurung shared a collaged photo of Saldana on December 12, congratulating her and Italian artist hubby Marco Perego on the birth of their sons.

And fellow actress and mom of twins, Garcelle Beauvais (whose fraternal twins, Jax and Jaid, were born in October 2007), also tweeted her congrats.

Saldana has been tweeting over the last few days, but no mention of the babies yet, or what their names might be. Reps for the couple have not yet confirmed the birth, either, but a source told E! Online that "she had her twins" and "they are surrounded by family and friends. All that matters now to Zoe and her husband is that the babies are healthy."

Saldana and Perego plan to raise the twins bilingual, she recently revealed in the September issue of Cosmo for Latinas — in which she appeared on the cover. Saldana is half-Dominican and half-Puerto Rican. The actress, whose first language is Spanish, lived in the Dominican Republic from ages 10 to 17.

"Of course [our children] will speak the languages that we speak; my sisters and I grew up learning French and speaking English and Spanish, and because of that, we're able to understand Italian and Portuguese,” she told Cosmo. "But I'm going to have to make a conscious effort to speak Spanish to my children, because I speak Spanglish.”

About Spanish being her first language, she told Cosmo: "I don't say 'mommy,' I say 'mami.'" We're betting her boys call her "mamá" and "mami" when their first words come!

Zoe Saldana and Marco Perego married in June 2013 at a secret ceremony in London after a whirlwind courtship.

Saldana’s latest role before becoming a mom: the voice of María in "The Book of Life," which is nominated for Best Animated Feature Film at the Golden Globes.

¡Felicidades, mami!
