The Kids Got Hens For Christmas, You All

Zoe Saldana has kids with meticulous appetites. The celebrity mom tells PEOPLE how her sons get their picky eating habits from mom.

“Consciously we are trying to eat healthy every single day, whereas our children don’t need to have that if we don’t instill that in them,” the actress shares. “We want them to have a natural instinct of eating healthy. [But] they’re super picky.”


Healthy eating was a big thing this past Christmas as Zoe and her husband, Marco Perego, gave their sons lively presents. “For Christmas, we got them their own hens so we’re going to have our own eggs,” Zoe explains. “We’re growing a lot of our basic things,” the celebrity mom continues. “We’re turning into those parents, but also realizing it isn’t that complicated,” she says.

Zoe and Marc Perego celebrated their youngest son Zen’s birthday last month. Saldana wrote a sweet note to her son on his special day. “You came into our lives in the most ‘zen’ way, and today you still continue to be our little Yogi baby,” the actress wrote online. “The world will be as worthy of you as any child in this world. We will work towards that purpose every day. You are seen, loved, respected and protected by everyone that knows you. God Bless you, baby boy.”

News of Zen’s arrival spread in February of last year. He is the youngest of Zoe and Marc’s three children.
