It has been well worth the wait: Zoë Saldana is back on the red carpet!

After skipping the Golden Globes to spend time with her twin boys, the new mama arrived at Sunday’s Oscars, where she showed off her incredible body after babies in a fitted frock.

The actress turned her appearance into a date night with husband Marco Perego as she stunned in a blush-colored Versace gown that hugged her curves and showed off her best assets. Saldana, 36, paired her ensemble with a teardrop statement necklace and kept her long dark longs pulled back into a simple chignon.

“When you have just had two babies — two babies — you let go and you’re not as demanding when it comes to fashion,” the new mom told InStyle days before the Oscars. “You ask yourself, ‘What is very flattering as my body is getting itself together again?’ ”

The new parents — they welcomed twin sons Cy Aridio and Bowie Ezio in November — held hands as they made their way past the press line.

But despite being all smiles, Saldana’s eyes were on the prize. No, not an Oscar, but the food! While walking down the carpet, she joked she was looking forward to chowing down on the delicacies.

However, most of all, the first-time mom couldn’t stop thinking about her baby boys back home.

“I’m so excited to present — my husband and I are very excited to actually be going out after three months in our baby cave. This is a rare occasion for us,” she told InStyle. “I’m pretty sure as soon as we go and I present, we’re going to be anxious to get home, to see what the babies are up to.”

She added, “We’re going to force ourselves to stay out because we have a great team of people that will be looking after them.”
