Zoe Saldana is very busy these days but always makes time for her family. She also apparently takes practical steps to keep her home a gender-neutral environment for her three sons, Zen and twins Cy and Bowie.
“We have a very gender-neutral environment where my husband participates in a lot of tasks that were normally given to women and vice versa. I get to do a lot of male things, which is, I don’t know, put the TV together, fix things that break. We’re sort of a very gender-fluid household. I think it’s important to raise boys in that environment, and girls as well.”
When she married her husband, Marco Perego Saldana, he even took Zoe’s last name.
She says he liked it and, “Wanted to really represent being a part of my family and represent my father’s legacy. He respected the fact that he didn’t want me to have to give up my name just because that’s the norm.”
