How Zoe Saldana Is Raising Her Sons

Zoe Saldana on Raising 3 Boys: It Takes "Our Assistant, Our Nanny, and Our Housekeeper"

A post shared by Zoe Saldana (@zoesaldana) on

Zoe Saldana always keeps it real, especially when it comes to raising three boys. The 38-year-old actress spoke to Yahoo Style about caring for her sons and how she handles it all, admitting the only way she can manage a busy schedule — three major movie franchises, Guardians of the Galaxy, Star Trek, and Avatar — a newborn, Zen, and 2-year-old twins, Cy and Bowie, is with help.

"Our assistant, our nanny, and our housekeeper. They are literally raising our children with us. It's because of them I am able to rip myself away as long as I can, and my husband as well, to do what we do. They're teaching us how to manage our pain as they're raising our kids with us," Zoe told Yahoo Style. "When you're away a little too much, it compromises a lot more things. It's a sacrifice and a pain that will never go away. You take every day at a time."

As one of three girls in her family, Zoe also talks about the experience of raising three boys. "I am accepting this ironic challenge that this universe has presented to me. I learn every day that men are marvelous and wonders of light, the same way I've been feeling about women, because I come from a family of matriarchs. I've married a man that I worship every day, and I have sons that humble me to no end," Zoe adorably revealed, also saying she fell in love with her husband at first sight.
