The working mom tells us about a common problem faced by most new parents, while toasting a tennis legend.

Zoe Saldana has a quick two-word answer for the following question: "How hard is it to raise twin boys?" The response: “Leaving home.”

The busy mother, who welcomed twin sons Cy and Bowie Nov. 27 with husband Marco Perego, admitted it’s an issue she’ll never be able to solve.

"I know that I’m going to be dealing with that forever because now that they are here it’s hard to do everything else. I just want to be with them," says the actress, with whom THR caught up March 7 at the Four Seasons Los Angeles in Beverly Hills, where she was presenting tennis legend Roger Federer with a special Moet & Chandon toast to celebrate his 1,000th career victory. "They’re so new and so delicious."

"When they cry, you as a mother feel like you’re the only one who understands them," she continues. "You have that second nature, unspoken word with your children and you know exactly what they are crying for and what they need. It’s really beautiful."

Saldana looked beautiful herself in a white Altuzarra ensemble (complemented with Christian Louboutin shoes and jewelry by Melissa Kaye, Graziela Gems and EF Collection) at the event to fete Moet's global brand ambassador Federer. "You are a tennis legend and a true inspiration off and on the court," Saldana told Federer during the presentation.

Federer told THR that he is grateful for the support he receives from the Hollywood community, many of whom come out to support him at major tournaments like the upcoming BNP Paribas Open in Indian Wells, California. Stars including Kate Walsh, Camilla Belle, Esai Morales, Jessica Lowndes, Jason Collins, Geyer Kosinski and Heather McDonald turned up at the Moet event Saturday night.

Though we didn’t get to ask Saldana and Federer what they bonded over in a private Four Seasons suite before the champagne celebration, there's no doubt they discussed double trouble. Federer and his wife, Mirka, have two sets of twins: girls Myla and Charlene, and boys Leo and Lenny.
