Zoe Saldana on If She Wants a Girl

What Zoe Saldana Says to People Asking If She Wants a Girl Will Make You Cheer

Whether you're a mom of boys or are raising a gaggle of girls, you have probably — nay, definitely — been asked the following: "But don't you want a boy?" "Are you going to try for a daughter next?!" "Next time's the charm, right?!"

Zoe Saldana, mother to three sons, is no stranger to this line of questioning.

"It always puzzles us," she said in an interview with Today. "We're a family of five, and then they're always like, 'Don't you want a girl?'"

Although she has said that "our family is complete as it came," she makes a point to set the record straight. "It's like, we have enough children," she said.

And to the next person who asks if she and her husband, Marco Perego, are going to try for a daughter, she added one final thought: "Our mission is to raise decent, amazing, compassionate men who will then pick partners — whether they're females or males — that will pick partners and hopefully I'll get to have the daughters later — as a grandmother," she said. "But I don't feel like I'm missing out."
