by Sophie Vokes-Dudgeon

Zoe Saldana surprised fans on Saturday (Feb. 18) when she announced the arrival of her third child. The excited mom took to Instagram to reveal that her family of four had grown - to become a family of five! “Marco and I are elated to share the news of the the birth of our son Zen," the actress wrote in a caption of a picture of their family’s new arrival. "We couldn't feel more blessed with the new addition to our family. #threeboys... oh boy!” she added.

The 38-year-old actress and her artist husband Marco Perego are already parents to twin boysCy Aridio and Bowie Ezio Perego-Saldana. The twin cuties were born in November 2014. The happy announcement has taken Hollywood by surprise as the notoriously private Avatar actress had not appeared to be pregnant when out and about Los Angeles in the past couple of months.

ZOE TALKS TO HELLO ABOUT LIFE WITH TWIN BOYS

TAP FOR GALLERY Zoe and husband Marco are now parents of three.

But one thing’ for sure, the addition of an extra child to her family is something the star will take in her stride. In September 2015 Zoe told HELLO! online that the adaptation to being a mum had come quite easily to her. She described her new role as "fun", although she did admit that "when you have twins, you get overwhelmed quite easily and really quickly," she said. "I guess I was surrounded by way too many moms who are always like, 'Oh, I got it so hard.' And my sister was always like, 'It's a piece of cake. It's super awesome,'" the actress said. "So I stuck with her, and it's fun."
