Penelope Cruz Pregnant, Expecting Second Child With Husband Javier Bardem

Nature is very wise and gives you nine months to prepare, but in that moment, when you see that face, you are transformed forever."

The news of Cruz and Bardem's second baby means that the actress and her younger sister, Monica Cruz, will be pregnant together for at least a few months. Monica, 35, announced earlier in January that she was expecting her first child via an anonymous sperm donor later this year.
