Even though she is currently single, Star Trek XI‘s Zoë Saldana hasn’t given up on wanting to have children of her own.
The actress revealed that she spoke about the topic with her ex-fiancé while they were still together, but the timing was never right for the couple.
“For years he wasn’t ready,” said Saldana. “Then when he got ready, I didn’t have time. I never held anything off because I was waiting for something to kick in. I don’t think that far about tomorrow. I felt the urge to want to have a baby, and I wanted to, but I remember that respecting his decision — and making the decision to wait with him — was one of the most mature things.
“I chose to wait and I’m glad I did. I’m glad that I respected him.”
Saldana still hopes to have a family of her own one day. “[I want] two or three,” she said. “Or four or five! I don’t care. They’re just so delicious.”
