Zoe Saldana is a mom, an actress, and an advocate. So it comes with no surprise that she teaches her children the importance of giving back as early as now. In one of her recent Instagram posts, Zoe and her twins can be seen adorably cuddling one another with red noses covering their real noses. 


In the photo, her twins could be seen wearing matching black and silver pajamas with stars printed on them. The trio could be seen snuggling each other's noses with the red nose, as the twins stood on top of the bed. 

Zoe explained the reason why they've got their #NosesOn. It was a campaign to help end child povery for Red Nose Day USA, and the actress encouraged her followers to follow suit. 


"We’ve got our #NosesOn… help end child poverty for @RedNoseDayUSA by visiting to learn more + find out how you can help. You can also snag your own Red Nose shirt designed by @victoriabeckham!"

Zoe and her husband Marco Perego welcomed twins Cy Aridio and Bowie Ezio in their lives three years ago, and the two toddlers have been having a hard time adjusting to the newest addition to their family, 17-month-old Zen Anton Hilario. 


In the "Avengers: Infinity War" star's latest interview with PEOPLE magazine, she shares that she and her husband have been needing to remind their twins to be compassionate with their little brother. 


"“We’re in a constant Groundhog Day where we’re repeating the same messages of compassion: ‘Don’t forget about little brother!’ I mean, he’s not a pushover, so that’s a good thing. But it’s really hard to be the little brother to two twin older brothers.”

According to Saldana, the fact that her twins are identical twins, they have a powerful bond and connection that makes them so close to each other. Because of this, it takes a whole lot of action for them not to forget about Zen. 

"They’re identical twins and they’re really attached at the hip and their connection is really majestic. So it takes a lot of conscious action to not forget about Zen — but Zen never lets them forget either. He’s really persistent."


With an Italian father and a Puerto Rican and Dominican mother, the couple are making sure that the three boys are connected to their heritage by teaching them both Italian and Spanish while growing up. According to Zoe, her boys have been handling learning three different languages very well. 

"“I think they’re doing much better than we are. They understand all three languages, and they also choose who they speak the languages with. So with their Italian grandparents they will speak in Italian, with their [Spanish-speaking] grandparents they speak in Spanish, and with Mama and Papa they will speak back in English — but they understand in any language we speak to them.”

Zoe Saldana and Marco Perego married each other in 2013, and have since shared their three adorable children together. They met five years prior to getting married in New York, where Marco was working as an artist, and Zoe was already a successful actress.
