Zoe Saldana has confirmed she’s pregnant.

The Avatar actress has kept quiet for weeks on reports she’s expecting her first child with husband Marco Perego.

But she was forced to come clean after accepting the ALS “ice bucket challenge” from director James Gunn.

In a video posted online Tuesday, Zoe instead nominated Marco to dump freezing cold water on his head and pledge money to the ALS Association, which is raising money for research with the viral campaign.

"I am accepting James Gunn's challenge to take on the ice bucket challenge,” Zoe tells the camera, before showing off her profile and cradling her bump.

"Obviously, I can't do it myself so I nominate my husband to take on the challenge," she added.

Marco then squeals as water is splashed over his head, and jumps into the pool behind him.

The couple nominated James Cameron, Aileen Getty, Ron Burkle, and Salma Hayek to follow.

Reports first surfaced Zoe was expecting late last month.

The 36-year-old actress secretly married Italian artist Marco in June of last year and has been seen in recent weeks sporting what many assumed was a baby bump, although she declined to confirm speculation.

"Zoe is about three months pregnant," an insider told Us Weekly at the time. "But she will only announce the news when she's ready."
