Zoe Saldana isn't just pregnant—she's pregnant with twins!

Multiple sources confirm to E! News exclusively that the 36-year-old Guardians of the Galaxy star is expecting two bundles of joy with her husband of one year, Italian artist Marco Perego. "She's thrilled!" an insider says. 

In 2012, Saldana said she hopes to have between two to five children—and now she's well on her way!

The actress won't have too much time to nest at home after she gives birth—as the leading lady in three movie franchises, she'll be back on set before she knows it. She's signed up for three Avatar sequels, but even she knows little about what to expect. "I've been told by [James Cameron] that it'll be about an overall spiritual journey," she says in The Hollywood Reporter's Aug. 1 issue, "but I don't have a script."

As far as a third Star Trek movie is concerned, she says, "All I know is that the producers of Trek 3 called the producers of Avatar 2 to find out when Avatar will finish shooting." Both will start shooting in 2015.

Congratulations—and good luck!—to Saldana and Perego as they start their parenthood journey.
