It’s Zoë Saldana’s first day back at work as the cover model for InStyle magazine. In the pages of the fashion publication, The Guardians of the Galaxy star opened up about growing comfortable with her husband Marco Perego and his modern-day name change.

“Since I’ve been with Marco, I’ve been lowering my guard. Finally when we had our boys I looked at my husband and I realised: I was meant for you and you were meant for me,” she said of Perego, who she has five-month-old twin boys Cy and Bowie with.

She continued, “I’ve always felt comfortable around men as long as they were friends. Now I finally feel comfortable with my lover. I don’t want to be separate. I want my church. I want to live inside the religion of our own little family.” A sentiment that is definitely not one sided. Since the pair tied the knot in 2013, Saldana’s says that her 36-year-old artist beau has chosen to take her surname, despite Zoe trying to “talk him out of it.”

“I tried to talk him out of it. I told him, ‘If you use my name, you’re going to be emasculated by your community of artists, by your Latin community of men, by the world.’ But Marco looks up at me and says, ‘Ah, Zoe, I don’t give a sh-t.'”

Too cute! What do you think of Perego taking Saldana’s last name? Hot or not? Sound off in the comment section below…
