ZOE SALDANA AND MARCO PEREGO HAVE THREE ADORABLE SONS TOGETHER: MEET CY, BOWIE, AND ZEN

Zoe and Marco have three adorable sons, Cy, Bowie, and Zen. The mom of three previously shared how she keeps her home gender-neutral for her three sons.

The New Jersey-born actress said being honest is the best way to welcome healthy and truthful discourse, particularly about parenthood. She remembered the twin saying that boys are stronger than girls.

Zoe stated that she takes a moment to compose an answer that her children will understand. She previously explained that creating a gender-neutral environment meant that her husband participates in tasks that were traditionally assigned to women.

Zoe also does tasks normally given to men, such as fixing broken things. She believes it is critical to raise both boys and girls in that environment.

She revealed that she and her husband aren't looking for a girl to join their family. She believed she would have been a great mother of daughters but said she was up for the challenge of raising three boys in the post-#MeToo era.
