Zoe Saldana addresses pregnancy for the first time in ALS ice bucket challenge video

By Gina DiFalco,

While her rep did confirm her pregnancy – and quite frankly her baby bump did, too – Zoe Saldana broke her silence on being pregnant while accepting the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge.

While the Guardians of the Galaxy star, 36, did accept the challenge, she noted she can’t do it because she’s expecting, so her husband Marco Perego stepped in for her instead.

"Obviously, I can't do it myself,” she said, rubbing her belly, “so I nominate my husband to take on the challenge," Us Weekly reports.

He completed it and jumped in the pool, but not before nominating James Cameron, Aileen Getty, Ron Burkle, and Salma Hayek.

Last month, Saldana’s rep confirmed she’s pregnant, but it has since been reported that the couple is expecting twins. Saldana married Perego, an Italian artist, last year in a secret ceremony.

"I'm Latin — we start young, honey!" she has previously said of becoming a mother.
