Zoe Saldana has three sons, but that doesn't keep her in the boys' section when she's out shopping. The Guardians of the Galaxy star lets her sons wear what they like - and that's not always what the boys' department says they're supposed to wear.
When it comes to choosing their clothes, Saldana's two-year-old twins, Bowie and Cy are in control (her youngest son, Zen, was born earlier this year, so he isn't quite old enough to have a say in his wardrobe). Bowie and Cy love to pick out their own shoes, and they're not interested when she shows them "masculine" sneakers made for boys, Saldana told People at the Victoria Beckham for Target launch earlier this month. "Their input has begun with their shoes. They just choose what they want to wear. So they have different pairs of glittery, bright pink trainers, and those are the shoes that they always choose. We get them their masculine ones. They don't like those. They want the glitter, the glitter bright pink ones, and we're like, so be it."
In fact, some people have confused her twins for girls, Saldana says, but that doesn't mean she's going to stop letting them have a say. "My husband and I, we don't like to just stick to like the boys' section. And we like putting leggings on our sons, believe it or not," she told People. If a store doesn't have what she's looking for, she's perfectly fine looking through girls' options. "I guess that it starts very young, as children, we gravitate towards color, and sometimes the boys section can just be very like gray and dark. So we find ourselves always sliding into the girls' section, and we have fun," she said.
And if anyone has a problem with that, it's NBD to Saldana. "If [her sons] have a preference of a color or a shape or a person or an animal or a story, we will never choose things for them because of their gender," she told Refinery29.
After all, couldn't everyone use a little more glitter in their lives?
