It looks like Zoe Saldana has babies on the brain.
“I’m Latin! We start young, honey!” the 33-year-old Avatar actress says on Lifetime’s The Conversation With Amanda de Cadenet. “At 22 you’re like, ‘I just wanna hold something!’ You want a little critter.”
Although Zoe and her former fiancé Keith Britton, 35, ended their 11-year relationship last November, the Star Trek star reveals that pair had previously discussed starting a family one day.
“For years he wasn’t ready,” Zoe explains. “Then when he got ready, I didn’t have time. I never held anything off because I was waiting for something to kick in. I don’t think that far about tomorrow.”
“I felt the urge to want to have a baby, and I wanted to, but I remember that respecting his decision — and making the decision to wait with him — was one of the most mature things,” she continues. “I chose to wait and I’m glad I did. I’m glad that I respected him.”
Even though Zoe is currently single – she recently split from her boyfriend of three months Bradley Cooper, 37 – she still admits she wants at least “two or three” kids one day.
“Or four or five! I don’t care. They’re just so delicious.”
I love the anxiety, the pressure of the loud room full of yapping kids. But I’m a kid myself. I get along very well with animals and children. I dig them, I get them. They make perfect sense to me. A child makes perfect sense to me. A child speaks more sense than an adult half of the time.”
