Happy birthday to Zoë Saldana‘s twins Cy Aridio and Bowie Ezio!

The proud mom, 39, dedicated sweet messages to her 3-year-old sons on social media Monday, along with photos from their family celebrations.

The trio appeared to be spending the big day on set as Saldana was dressed in a motion capture suit but made sure to get some time in with the birthday boys as well as husband Marco Perego-Saldana and their youngest son Zen.

“Happy Birthday Bowie and Cy! Today, November 27th will always be the happiest and scariest day of our lives. On a day like today, three years ago our lives changed forever. We went from being two to four in just 2 minutes,” Saldana wrote along with a candid photo of the birthday boys.

Los amo hijos míos, hijos de Marco, hijos del mundo. ~~ Feliz cumpleaños Bowie y Cy! Hoy, el 27 de noviembre siempre será el día más feliz y aterrador de nuestras vidas.

Aunque llegaron temprano y con un par de miedos aterradores, han sido la luz de nuestras vidas desde que supimos de la presencia de ustedes dentro de nosotros. Su fuerza, determinación, curiosidad y amabilidad nos mantienen humildes y enfocados todos los días. Gracias por elegirnos para guiarlos a través de las primeras etapas de vuestras vidas. Ambos están destinados a la grandeza y por la gracia de DIOS, tu padre y yo nos aseguraremos de que crezcan para ser hombres excepcionales que traerán curación, sabiduría, felicidad y cambio a este mundo.

Y, por favor, continúen enseñándonos cómo deben ser amado, visto, hablado, enseñado, motivado, protegido, todo lo que necesitan para prosperar y hacer que su vida sea significativa.

Back in May, the mother of three told PEOPLE that she has her hands full when it comes to parenting her twin sons.

“They’re twins and they get along and they’re best friends, but they’re also super competitive,” Saldana said. “So they’re always fighting about the same things, and we buy them two of the same toys, but they always want the one the other one has. I don’t understand how that works or why they do that.”
