Meeting people is one thing and falling in love with them is another especially when the people in question are of a different race, ethnicity, profession, and of a circle that is out of their usual. However, Marco Perego and Zoe Saldana took the bold step of getting together as husband and wife even with their two entirely different backgrounds. Whatever their reason the couple has gotten the admiration of people.
The couple has since their marriage become one of the most admired celebrity couples of our time. Inasmuch as Marco Perego is from Italy and is an artist, he caught the fancy of Saldana who is an American-Dominican model, dancer and award-winning actress and a star of several blockbuster movies which include: Star Trek, Avatar, Guardians of the Galaxy, and Death at a Funeral among others. Zoe undeniably attested that she had been in relationships with other actors and different men but Perego was different and won the better part of her heart. She was at sometime romantically involved with Bradley Cooper for a long time before she got engaged to actor Keith Britton.
Marco was, however, not very famous on his own even with the great paintings that he did. His record-breaking sales began after his relationship with Gilda Moratti got known. He then started selling paintings at $15, 000 to $30, 000 a few years later. It was then that he gained international recognition which also marked the beginning of a new phase in his career. Until his becoming an artist and his decision to relocate to New York in 2002, Marco was a footballer. More so, he took on several odd jobs before finding his place as an artist.
How Did Marco Perego and Zoe Saldana Meet?
With regards to when Marco and Zoe met, sources have reported that they first met while on a plane trip to New York and immediately felt a spark that was not so common. To them, it was love at first sight. That meeting in 2013 began Marco Perego and Zoe Saldana’s love story which would later reach to marriage. At first, they kept their relationship hidden from the media, hence it came as a surprise when they were spotted kissing.
Just a few months after Marco Perego and Zoe Saldana started dating, the couple decided to have a secret wedding away from the public in London. It soon became apparent that they were now man and wife after they were spotted with golden bands on their wedding fingers.
Following their marriage, Perego took the world by storm when he decided to adopt Zoe’s second name. Even with the effort of Zoe to make Marco change his mind, he was adamant and was ready to do the unconventional. The duo has undoubtedly found love in each other and their marriage blossoms quite well.
How Long Have They Been Married?
Marco Perego and Zoe Saldana are a couple known for their unconventional lifestyle. As already noted, the two have been married since 2013 which also happens to be the year they first met. Since then, the notoriously private couple has been together.
Following their years of marriage, the couple is making headway in building their family as they have already been blessed with 3 sons – twins named Bowie Ezio Perego-Saldana and Cy Aridio Perego-Saldana who was born on November 27, 2014, and their youngest son, Zen Perego-Saldana who was born in February 2017. Like their father, the boys bear both their paternal and maternal names.
Marco Perego and Zoe Saldana have been able to mix their jobs as professional painter and actress respectively with having to raise 3 boys. Since the couple believes in gender equality, they are said to be training their sons in a way that equality will matter a lot to them. To add to training their children, the two are currently training their boys to be bilingual (English and Spanish).
Still, on their marriage, Perego is known to be one among the few men who are said to be supportive of their wives ambitions which in Zoe’s case is acting. Also, he has been spotted severally with her on red carpets of several events. The couple’s marriage has no known scandal and continues to enjoy peace.
