Zoe Saldana has revealed she is pregnant by refusing to take the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge.
The actress was nominated by her Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn but in a poolside video posted online yesterday she explained she was in no condition to have freezing water tipped over her head.
Instead, Saldana let her new husband Marco Perego take the plunge.
Rubbing her bulging belly, the mum-to-be said: "Obviously I can't do it myself so I nominate my husband to take on the challenge."
Saldana then nominated her Avatar director James Cameron, pals Salma Hayek and Aileen Getty, and businessman Ron Burkle.
She and Perego wed last year and reports suggest the actress is expecting twins later this year.
Despite her pregnancy, Cameron said it would not affect the coming Avatar sequels which are set to go into production later this year, with Avatar 2 set for release in December 2016.
