Saldana planned wedding in just three weeks

Zoe Saldana planned her wedding in three weeks.

The 'Guardians of the Galaxy' actress tied the knot with her beau Marco Perego in London last year following a few months of dating, but she admits it took her less than a month to organise her secret big day.

Speaking to the Hollywood Reporter, she said: "As soon as we decided we were going to get married, we didn't wait. We did it three weeks later. That part was very, very quick."

The 36-year-old star - who was engaged to long-term partner Keith Britton until their split in 2011 - had previously vowed she'd never get hitched, but falling in love with Marco changed her mind.

She explained: "I've known my partner for five years. I knew of his work. I knew of him. Then we met. And months later, we both made the decision to do what we both individually vowed never to do -- to get married."

The loved-up couple are expecting their first child together and are delighted about becoming parents, but don't intend on confirming the news just yet.

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!"
