It appeared today that Zoe Saldana is pretty good at keeping a secret. The actress was spoted with Marco Perego in mid-May, and then the two managed to get married in a secret ceremony in June, with no media sorces aware of the event.
“It was super small but very romantic and beautiful,” a source said to Us Weekly of the ceremony, which was attended by just a few close friends and relatives.
The Avatar star and the Italian artist, both 34, were first seen together in mid-May when they were kissing after Saldana’s Star Trek Into Darkness premiere in Los Angeles.
However, a source close to to the couple, told reporters in June that the newlyweds have “known each other for a long time.” Another pal added, “They have great chemistry.”
Another source confirmed the news, saying: “They are very happy.”
The actress was previously engaged to Keith Britton, CEO of My Fashion Database. However, the two split in 2011 after 11 years of dating.
Zoe spoke about her desire to create a family the next year, during an April 2012 appearance on Lifetime’s The Conversation With Amanda de Cadenet.
“I’m Latin – we start young, honey!” said the ‘Crossroads’ star. “At 22 you’re like, ‘I just wanna hold something!’ You want a little critter.”
“I love the anxiety, the pressure of the loud room full of yapping kids. But I’m a kid myself,” Saldana continued. “I get along very well with animals and children. I dig them, I get them. They make perfect sense to me. A child makes perfect sense to me. A child speaks more sense than an adult half of the time.”
She said of Britton: “I feel like the partners that stay at home, they have their lives, but they’re the ones that are living with the real you.”
“I think that they need to be recognized, every now and then, every 10 years, just come out in public – put him on the spot and just say thank you,” she continued.
“He’s a very independent soul. He understands what I do, but this is not what he fell in love with and that’s what I love.”
Last year the beauty was linked to her ‘Crossroads’ partner, Bradley Cooper. However, they called it quits.
“He dumped her, he just doesn’t want to be in a relationship at the moment,” a source familiar with the matter told reporters.
So, what went wrong between the former couple? It seems like nothing…they were just better suited to be pals.
“They have a great friendship, a natural chemistry and it was for that reason their relationship was able to grow into something more,” the insider told E! Online. “But the timing was wrong, they are in different places in their lives.”
“She and Bradley weren’t super serious at all,” another friend said of the two, who were seen on set exchanging kisses. Last month Saldana spent the day with Cooper’s mother, Gloria.
