Two peas in her pod! Zoe Saldana confirmed on Wednesday, Oct. 1, that she is pregnant with twins, expecting her first children with husband Marco Perego.

The actress, 36, was speaking to E! News at the opening of the Hollywood Costume exhibit at Los Angeles' Wilshire May Company Building, when she was asked if she would be donning her own costume for Halloween this year. 

"I might," she replied, reportedly rubbing her belly as she spoke. "I might need three costumes. I might have to make some adjustments, but it would be nice."

Saldana's pal and former Crossroads costar Britney Spears previously let it slip that the Avatar star had two bundles of joy on the way. 

When asked by Entertainment Tonight if she and Saldana would ever film another movie together, Spears, 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."

Saldana and her artist love, 36, secretly tied the knot in June 2013. The happy couple already has big plans for the twins, as the Guardians of the Galaxy actress told Cosmo for Latinas that she will teach her children to be bilingual. 

"Of course [our children] will speak the languages that we speak," she said. "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. But I'm going to have to make a conscious effort to speak Spanish to my children, because I speak Spanglish."
