Zoe Saldana and her artist husband, Marco Perego, are parents to one-year-old twin boys, but despite being an A-list celebrity couple, they’re still apparently struggling to keep up with their two young kids.
Saldana posted a hilarious video on Instagram that a lot of new parents will probably be able to relate to. It shows her and her husband looking into the camera with exhausted looks in their faces, and in the background you can hear the twins crying, almost as if it’s on cue. And just when they think it might be over, the crying continues. Saldana explained in the caption exactly how they were feeling, writing, “Good morning… Buenos dias… merry xmas! # nosleep everrrrrrr!!!!#parents #twins #pleasegotosleep [sic].”
Judging by the over 11,000 likes and hundreds of comments, Saldana’s fans completely understand what she’s going through. “I love this!!! Its so real! I have a 2 year old and a one year old..i feel your struggle..it is real! [sic]” commented one fan. Another offered some words of wisdom for the new nom: “Omg! I can so relate. You have to find humor with your partner it’s what keeps you sane.”
A couple minutes after posting the video, Saldana shared another post, this time a photo (presumably taken moments after the video) of Perego sitting in front of their Christmas tree with one twin on each knee. She captioned it, “Oh let’s look at the tree… at 5am in the morning! Oh look how shiny it is…because it’s still dark outside!” Although you can sense her frustration, it definitely made for an adorable photo.
Zoe Saldana Instagram followers have gotten used to seeing these kinds of precious family moments from the new celebrity parents. A few days ago, the actress posted a picture in honor of the new Star Wars movie—it showed her family’s feet all decked out in Star Wars-themed socks. And a couple weeks before that, she posted a picture of her posing with her husband as their two kids played with some artwork. She captioned it with a very touching quote by Louis Pasteur: “When I approach a child, he inspires in me two sentiments — tenderness for what he is and respect for what he may become.”
