Zoe Saldana - Zoe Saldana Desperate To Have Kids
Avatar star Zoe Saldana is desperate to start a family after spending years waiting to become a mum with ex-fiance Keith Britton.
The actress admits she has always dreamed of a brood of kids but the timing was never right for her to get pregnant during her 11-year romance with Britton, which ended last year (Nov11).
In a candid interview with socialite Amanda de Cadenet for new U.S. show The Conversation, Saldana says, "I'm Latin, we start young... At 22, you're like, 'I'm getting an itch to hold something; I just wanna have a little critter.'
"I was dating my partner and you wanna be respectful... he wasn't ready... and then when he got ready I didn't have time.
"Making the decision to wait with him was one of the most mature things... Had I been, like, the traditional person that I really am, I would have been, 'I'll find somebody that can give me a baby...' I'm glad that I respected him."
But now the 33-year-old actress is desperate to be a mum: "I want two or three or four or five. I don't care. They're so delicious and I love the pressure and anxiety of, like, a loud room full of yapping kids. I'm a kid myself, so I get along very well with animals and children. I dig them, I get them. They make perfect sense to me."
