Zoe Saldana: Pushing snooze on baby plans

Zoe Saldana would love to have another child, as she thinks three is a good number.

The 37-year-old actress and her husband Marco Perego welcomed their twin sons Bowie and Cy into the world in November last year, and becoming parents has been a steep learning curve. It's not put Zoe off having more; just don't expect her brood to expand any time soon.

"Oh, absolutely. I'm one of three - with my two sisters - and I always wanted to have three kids. I think three's a great number," she told British magazine Hello! "Obviously I'm not going to force it. My husband and I definitely want to have one more, but we both need a little bit of a break first. I have to sleep a good eight hours first."

When it comes to the sex, Zoe is very laidback about what she'd like next. Obviously she'd love to have a daughter, but she's also enjoying mothering sons so much that another little boy would be fun.

Family is the most important thing to the actress, and she is fiercely proud of how well she and Marco have adapted to having their little ones in their lives.

"We're both very, very tired. But we're still together and still completely in love. And teamwork challenges you, because sometimes you're just so exhausted and your patience for your partner may not be as forgiving as it usually is. But we're constantly communicating and exercising and just being together and being a team," she explained. "I'm just so grateful to have the partner I do in Marco - he's a great father and that makes it easier for you to deal with the stress."
