This just in: Zoe Saldana is pregnant!

The Avatar actress is expecting her first child with hubby Marco Perego, 35.

According to a source for Us Weekly, Zoe's around three months along and "will only announce the news when she's ready." And it looks like she's ready: Zoe's publicist confirmed the news to The Hollywood Reporter earlier today (Wednesday, July 23).

But who says she was hiding... Indeed, pregnancy rumours began to swirl as early as July 14, when Zoe was spotted shopping at Whole Foods, in Studio City, California—wearing this striped, form-fitting dress...
