Comes with the territory! Pregnant Zoe Saldana dropped by The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Friday, Oct. 17, to talk everything baby with her Book of Life costars Channing Tatum and Diego Luna, who are parents themselves. Saldana explained that the hunky actors gave her advice about parenthood backstage before taping the daytime talk show.
"It's exciting. They're schooling me on what to expect. It's fun, it's not so fun every day, but it's fun," Saldana, 36, said of carrying twin boys.
"You hear everything and you feel like, 'Okay I can deal with this,'" she added. "Until I was just telling the boys I went to sit down the other day and I broke my pants from beginning to the end and I was just like, 'This is new, this is really interesting.'"
Saldana laughed off the silly incident, leaving Tatum to quip: "It's okay, I did that yesterday."
The Guardians of the Galaxy actress is due in about eight to ten weeks, and still appears to be mulling over baby names with her Italian artist husband Marco Perego. Their families have been giving them suggestions every chance they get, too.
"My husband is very Italian and I'm very Latina so every day we have messages from our parents, 'Oh it should be Rocko, Giovanni, Luigi, Antonio Ramon Jose.' And you're like, 'Oh my god, people chill, chill,'" the mom-to-be said.
"We're kind of hippie. We want it to be like, Lavender," she teased. "We just want them to be healthy."
Even so, Tatum gave his two cents anyway. He joked: "You should just freak 'em out and be like, 'No, we're thinking Bob.'"
