Penelope Cruz Is Pregnant & That's Not All

Posted by Jacqueline Burt

penelope cruzBeautiful baby-on-the-way alert: Penelope Cruz is pregnant! The beautiful 38-year-old actress and her beautiful husband, actor Javier Bardem, are expecting their second child (beautiful son Leo was born in 2011). That's gonna be one heck of a beautiful family!

A beautiful extended family, actually. Because Penelope isn't the only pregnant Cruz at the moment ...

The star's 35-year-old sister Monica will welcome her first baby later this year (she announced her pregnancy via an anonymous sperm donor in January). Oh my god. Can you imagine? Those are gonna be the prettiest playdates ever!

Seriously, though, I think it's awesome that Penelope and her sister will be preggers together. I don't have a sister, but I did have a couple of friends who were pregnant at the same time as me -- one of them even had her baby the same day I had my son, in the same hospital! And let me tell you, having someone to share the ups and downs and in-betweens of pregnancy with is as good as it gets, gestationally-speaking. Sure, non-pregnant friends and family can be supportive, but it's just not the same.

Anyway, best of luck to this pregnant pair! Congratulations Penelope and Monica (and Javier and Leo)!

Have you ever been pregnant at the same time as a sister or friend?

My sister and I were pregnant at the same time, due 3 days apart. She had her baby two weeks early and I had my little guy two weeks late though!

My stepmom always seemed to have a kid around the same time as me.

I really think there was something in the water at my job because three co-workers and myself were all pregnant at the same time - two got pregnant about 6 months prior to me and one other co-worker.  My daughter and one co-worker's daughter were born a day apart even.

My sister and I were pregnant together and we had our babies 1 weeks apart. We are both currently pregnant again together but she is a few months behind me. Too bad she lives far away.

In my family, it seems like my cousins and I always get pregnant at the same time! Right now 2 of them are preggers. It's so funny. Not to mention my Mom and her sisters all had babies in 1985, the yr I was born. There are 5 of us who are currently 27 :)
