It has been confirmed that Zoe Saldana said “I do” to Italian artist Marco Perego in London in June. The couple reportedly held an intimate ceremony with family and friends and even went on a honeymoon. A source close to the newlyweds told People magazine “They are very happy.”
The Dominican-born actress and Perego, both 34, were friends for a while before becoming publicly romantic in May when they were seen kissing at the after-party for the premiere of the film “Star Trek Into Darkness.”
Perego was a promising soccer player until an injury ended his career. He emigrated to America and became a rising artist.
The Colombiana actress was once engaged for 11 years to Keith Britton, CEO of My Fashion Database when it ended in 2011.
After Britton, the actress dated actor Bradley Cooper, who she began dating in January 2012, after filming the movie The Words together. The actors ended three months later, in March, but they reconciled in September. Then finally separated in December.
Saldana spoke about settling down and having a family during an April 2012 appearance on Lifetime’s The Conversation With Amanda de Cadenet:
“I’m Latin — we start young, honey!” said the star. “At 22 you’re like, ‘I just wanna hold something!’ You want a little critter.”
