The new mom was game to sword fight — even with a baby on board!

Penélope Cruz has been looking glamorous at screenings of her new blockbuster Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, but she almost didn’t get a chance to make the movie when she found out she was pregnant!

Penélope, 37, told director Rob Marshall she was expecting just a week before filming started, Parade reports.

“We were like, uhhhhh,” he said. “I said, ‘Are you going to be okay sword fighting with a baby in your stomach?’ But she was up for it. She said she’d understand if we had to replace her, but she didn’t want to be replaced. It took more time, ultimately, but she was worth it.”

We’re glad she muscled through the production — she’s such a strong woman. And we’re sure her husband Javier Bardem and her newborn Leo Encinas will be thrilled to watch Penélope in action!
