Zoe Saldana shocked the world when she recently revealed that she and husband Marco Perego were the proud parents of a new baby boy. Now the 38-year-old is opening up about the decision to expand her family, and revealed having two sisters may have had a lot to do with it.
“I love being a sister and I love having siblings,” confessed Saldana, who is also the mother of 2-year-old twins Cy and Bowie. “I can’t imagine what it would be like to be a single child. I’m pretty sure it’s amazing for some and difficult for others, and maybe that’s why I had three kids because I’m one of three and that was a good number.”
Saldana showed off baby Zen on her Instagram page back in February. She told us going back to work and leaving her baby boys at home to film Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 was extremely tough.
“I love the movie once I watch it, but waking up at 2:30 in the morning just wasn’t fun. I wasn’t the nicest of all people. I just wanted to be a B-I-T-C-H like so bad,” she joked. “Especially when you have kids you are leaving behind, it was grueling.”
Thankfully, she got some good advice on weathering the storm from a female producer friend. “She told me when she had to go back to work, ‘There’s nothing you can do but enjoy what you do,’ because if you’re miserable, you’re going to make everyone else around you miserable.”
Saldana also shared some sweet words of wisdom she’s learned about raising twins for expectant mom of two, Beyonce. “Routines will save your sanity,” she laughed. “It will save your health and it will save your marriage.”

5 Reasons You Need To Know Daveed Diggs

Published

If you don’t know the name Daveed Diggs you will now! The Oakland native is definitely one to watch in Hollywood. Here are five reasons why.

1. He has already taken Broadway by storm.

In 2016 Diggs nabbed a Tony and a Grammy award for his role as Marquis de Lafayette/ Thomas Jefferson in “Hamilton.” Believe it or not Diggs didn’t even audition for the role. While substitute teaching in Marin County, CA he met Hamilton’s eventual star and creator Lin Manuel-Miranda and director, Thomas Kail who invited him to join their free-style rap group and later helped them craft the fast-rapping revolutionary. 

2. He’s funny. 

Diggs is proving he’s also got some amazing comedy chops with two memorable recurring sitcom roles: one as Perry, the crush du jour for Kimmy (Ellie Kemper) on Netflix’s Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, and the other on ABC’s black-ish as Johan, the free-spirited brother of Rainbow (Tracee Ellis Ross). In fact, Black-ish creator Kenya Barris wrote the role for Diggs after being “blown away” by his performance on stage.

3. His first feature film Wonder is in theaters now.

In the film based on the New York Times best-selling novel of the same name, Diggs plays Mr. Browne the fifth grade teacher at the school where lead Jacob Tremblay attends. Diggs landed the role after wrapping his run in “Hamilton” and told HH it was like a crash course in film acting alongside Julia Roberts and Owen Wilson.

4. He’s a rapper. 

His experimental noise rap group Clipping has garnered a major cult following on Youtube. Their LP CLPPNG was an Album Of The Week back in 2014. And in 2016 the trio performed on The Late Late Show with James Corden to promote the release of their six-track EP Wriggle. 

5. He is executive producer of ABC’s The Mayor.  

The show about a struggling young rapper (Brandon Micheal Hall) who runs for local office (and wins) to boost his popularity, debuted this Fall and already is garnering wave reviews. Not surprisingly Diggs and his Clipping bandmates William Hutson and Jonathan Snipes, also produce all the music for the show.
