Recently, Zoë Saldana celebrated twins Cy & Bowie’s third birthday. Saldana has promised to raise her young boys to be “exceptional men” by which she means they’ll no doubt respect themselves and others. Cy and Bowie are now three years old, and their 39-year-old proud mom sent out a large number of messages to them this week through various social media channels. She included a few choice photos from private family parties, with the boys front and center, smiling from ear to ear.

Los amo hijos míos, hijos de Marco, hijos del mundo. ~~ Feliz cumpleaños Bowie y Cy! Hoy, el 27 de noviembre siempre será el día más feliz y aterrador de nuestras vidas. En un día como hoy, hace tres años nuestras vidas cambiaron para siempre. Pasamos de dos a cuatro en solo 2 minutos. Aunque llegaron temprano y con un par de miedos aterradores, han sido la luz de nuestras vidas desde que supimos de la presencia de ustedes dentro de nosotros. Su fuerza, determinación, curiosidad y amabilidad nos mantienen humildes y enfocados todos los días. Gracias por elegirnos para guiarlos a través de las primeras etapas de vuestras vidas. Ambos están destinados a la grandeza y por la gracia de DIOS, tu padre y yo nos aseguraremos de que crezcan para ser hombres excepcionales que traerán curación, sabiduría, felicidad y cambio a este mundo. Tenemos una gran tarea por delante, y es criar hombres sanos, empáticos y desinteresados. Esperamos nunca decepcionarlos. Y, por favor, continúen enseñándonos cómo deben ser amado, visto, hablado, enseñado, motivado, protegido, todo lo que necesitan para prosperar y hacer que su vida sea significativa.
The Colombiana star and her husband, Marco Perego spent quality time with the young duo on their big day. Saldana was still clad in her special effects costume on a movie set while she snapped a few pics with the twins and her husband. The youngest brother to the twins, son Zen, was also on hand to complete the “family of five” photo session and share in the laughter and fun.
Saldana calls November 27, the day the twins were born, the “happiest and scariest day of our lives.” She refers to the children as “the light of our lives,” and knows in her heart that the boys will grow up to be a positive force in the world for “healing, wisdom, happiness and change”
According to Saldana, the twins get along famously and are close friends but do have their “competitive” moments. She admits that they have petty fights about little things, as all boys will do.
