In 2014, Zoe Saldana and her husband, Marco Perego, welcomed twin boys, Bowie and Cy. During an interview this week on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen, Saldana revealed that her friend and former costar, Britney Spears, outed her pregnancy to the press before she and her husband were ready to share the news, People reports.
The Crossroads costars met on an airplane and spent the flight catching up, Saldana said.
"We were on the same flight from L.A. to New York and we just talked for the duration of the flight," she explained. "She has two boys, I was having twins — and we had a beautiful talk. And I forgot — it never even occurred to me to not to say anything. We weren't trying to hide it, we were just trying to be discreet."
A few days later, Spears was asked during an interview with Entertainment Tonight if she and Saldana might work together again someday and the baby news came out.
"Who knows? That's a very good idea. But she's pregnant with twins right now. So I'm sure she's got a huge future ahead of her," Spears said during the interview.
The only problem: Saldana and her husband hadn't made the news public yet and weren't totally ready for it. But Saldana insists they were never upset with Britney over the accidental reveal.
"The way that it happened was so innocent that I never even thought of holding her accountable for anything," Saldana said. "She was just being Britney. I love her — I don't mean that in a negative way, I mean that in the way that she lives her life in such truth. I was shocked because we weren't ready to sort of share that. But it was Britney, so it's okay."
