Surprise! Zoe Saldana got married—waaaaay back in June! Congratulations!
According to People, the Star Trek Into Darkness star tied the knot with her boyfriend of approximately one year, Marco Perego, earlier this summer. We don’t actually know how long these two have been dating; after the end of her eleven-year relationship with Keith Britton and a much-talked-about, on-again-off-again fling with Bradley Cooper, Zoe started taking a page out of Kerry Washington’s book and keeping her private life out of the public eye. Good for her, we say; although we’ll admit that we were curious after Zoe and Marco were spotted last week in London with something that looked like wedding bands on their fingers, we’re totally up for leaving them alone. We’re just happy they’re happy!
For those of you with an insatiable curiosity about celebrity relationships, though, here’s what we know about Marco:
1. He’s Italian (hot).
2. He’s also an artist (hotter!). His influences include Andy Warhol, Caravaggio, and Marcel Duchamp.
3. He was once a promising soccer player; at 17, he earned a spot on Venice’s professional team. Alas, though, he suffered what turned out to be a career-ending leg injury at 21. After a year spent in Brazil trying to recuperate, he moved to New York to pursue his dream of becoming an artist.
4. His nickname is “Pirate Perego”—a moniker he earned thanks to his Johnny Depp-esque hair.
Congrats to the happy couple! May you have many joyous (and private) years with each other!
