Expectant Parents Penélope and Javier Celebrate the Birth of Another Cruz
A very pregnant Penélope Cruz was all smiles when she visited her sister, Monica Cruz, at a hospital in Madrid after Monica gave birth to a baby girl yesterday. Penélope was joined by her husband, Javier Bardem, and brother, Eduardo Cruz, as they all piled into a taxi to leave the hospital. Eduardo made a reference to the good news when he posted a photo on his Twitter account that read "Viva La Vida" yesterday.
Monica made headlines back in January when she announced that she had gotten pregnant through an anonymous sperm donor and was planning on raising her baby as a single mother. She announced the news in a blog post for El País, saying, "I'm going to be a mom! I have achieved the dream of my lifetime." Shortly after Monica's news, Penélope and Javier confirmed that they were expecting their second child in February.
