Zoe Saldana must feel really safe with her adorable superhero twins. The actress took to Instagram to share a cute snap of the boys, Cy and Bowie, in celebration of National Twin Day.


The boys are backing the camera in the picture and are walking towards the opposite direction of what looks to be a playing field. There is a third kid in the photo, believed to be the twins' younger brother, 19-month old Zen. Their celebrity mom captioned the post:

"Happy #nationaltwinday to Cy and Bowie, you’re the best superhero big brothers Zen could ask for!"


Regardless of her busy schedule, Saldana, who is famously known for her role in "Avatar" remains a hands-on mom that is actively involved in the upbringing of her children. She once revealed that her kids were her source of strength:

“They keep me on my toes, reminding me how much I still have to learn and grow as a person.”


They hardly make public appearances, but the 40-year old "Colombiana" star has always been vocal about how she and her husband, Marco Perego-Saldana, are bringing up their kids to have no consideration for gender stereotypes. She disclosed:

“When you look at parenting, the whole thing about matriarchy and patriarchy, and Daddy’s little girl and Mama’s boys- my husband and I find that completely ludicrous and absolutely unhealthy for the upbringing of a child. ...You’re giving them a very distorted and limited view on what a female role is supposed to be in a family and what a male role is supposed to be."


Both parents continue to apply their beliefs in every aspect of their children's lives. Even issues that sound inconsequential- such as what clothes or toys to buy the kids- are handled bearing the central philosophy in mind.

Saldana and her artist husband are not afraid to practice what they preach; both parents took on the last name of the other. Saldana's official name is Zoe Saldana-Perego while her partner goes by Marco Perego-Saldana.
