Zoe Saldana is expecting twins.

The 'Guardians of the Galaxy' actress and her husband Marco Perego are said to be delighted they will welcome two children into the world later this year, several sources told E! News.

One insider added: "She's thrilled!"

The 36-year old actress is said to be around three months pregnant.

A source said recently: "Zoe is about three months pregnant. But she will only announce the news when she's ready.

"Zoe has always wanted a big family, and Marco's on board too!"

The 'Avatar' star - who was in a relationship with entrepreneur Keith Britton for 11 years until November 2011 and later dated actor Bradley Cooper until January 2013 - previously admitted she was in a "beautiful place" in her life when she met Marco last year and was ready to marry him shortly afterwards as she finally felt comfortable with herself.

She recently said: "I was finally able to spend time without being in a relationship and even though, it was a short period of time, it was beautiful.

"Where I lost that fear of being alone. It was bliss.

"I met my partner when I was in really a beautiful place in my life. When you are desired and you desire, so many things in your life start to make sense."
