During a recent appearance on Despierta América, Zoe Saldana received a surprise from her family. Our September cover girl was promoting her upcoming film Colombiana on the Univision show when host Raúl González asked her to look at a camera and tell her mother how much she means to the actress.
“Azalia is my everything,” the 30-year-old actress said. “She’s my beautiful thing. My cha-cha. My chao-choli. I love you mami!” The part Dominican, part Puerto Rican actress wasn’t aware yet that several of her family members were waiting to speak to her via telecast. When Saldana turned toward a television screen nearby, her hands flailed and mouth was left agape when she saw her family members. “Oh my God! What are you guys doing?” she yelled.
Azalia only had beautiful things to say about her daughter. “One gift. A beautiful gift that life has given me,” Azalia said of Saldana. “And I thank you for choosing me as your mother. I love seeing you realize your dreams.” The actress silently wiped tears from her face – so sweet! Check out the video below to see the touching moment for yourself:
