The Oscar-winning actress is a mom again! The 39 year old gave birth to her second child, a baby girl with husband Javier Bardem on July 22 in Madrid, on the same day as the birth of the royal baby. Congrats to the happy couple!
Penelope Cruz & Javier Bardem Welcome Baby Girl
Their newborn daughter was born in Madrid. Penelope and Javier are obviously thrilled to welcome another member into their happy family, and the two are already old pros at parenting.
The couple happily welcomed their first child, Leo Encinas Cruz, in January of 2011. Penelope has previously stated how much she loves motherhood.
“It’s a revolutionary experience. That’s the best way I can describe it, ” the actress told Vogue in 2011. “”Nature is very wise and gives you nine months to prepare, but in that moment -– when you see that face, you are transformed forever.”
One Big, Happy Family
Penelope isn’t the only Cruz to welcome a new addition! Penelope’s sister Monica Cruz recently welcomed a beautiful baby girl on May 14th. Penelope and Javier were spotted visiting Monica and meeting their niece the next day at a Madrid Hospital. We’re sure the Cruz sisters are thrilled to have their bundles of joy be so close in age to each other. We’re picturing lots of play dates in the near future!
We’re so happy to see Penelope and Javier expanding their family – it’s wonderful to know that both Penelope and the baby are happy and healthy. The Cruz family has so much to be thankful for!
Once again, congratulations to the happy couple!
