A source told Us Weekly the Guardians of the Galaxy actress is about three months along, but is waiting to officially announce the news until she's ready.

Saldana may not be officially confirming the news, but she made no attempt to hide her tiny bump at the Guardians of the Galaxy premiere. The actress wore a form-fitting Louis Vuitton dress with a white belt that accentuated her new curves. See below for a full-length image of Saldana at the premiere.

Saldana and Perego were secretly married in England last summer, and the actress hasn't been shy about her feelings for her husband and her contentment with their relationship. "We found each other, and it was that desire and not that necessity that put us together," she told People.

The actress has been vocal about her desire for a family over the years. She talked about it on the Lifetime series The Conversation With Amanda de Cadenet in April 2012, saying, "I'm Latin — we start young, honey!"

She continued that she'd like to have at least two or three kids but wasn't against having more. "They're just so delicious. I love the anxiety, the pressure of the loud room full of yapping kids. But I'm a kid myself. I get along very well with animals and children. I dig them. I get them. They make perfect sense to me. A child makes perfect sense to me. A child speaks more sense than an adult half of the time."
