Penelope Cruz’s sister, Monica, is expecting a baby! This will be Monica’s first child. She’s being open about how she conceived, too: via artificial insemination. Monica wrote an article about it on the Spanish blog ‘El Pais.’ People translated parts of the article.
“I’m going to be a mom! I have achieved the dream of my lifetime… [I would like to thank] hose anonymous donors that help so many women, like me, to achieve their dreams.”
Monica said she decided to be open about using artificial insemination to help others who may want to do the same thing and stop speculation about the baby daddy.
“If by doing this I can help other women who have their doubts, you have me here for whatever you need. Above all, I wanted to avoid speculation about supposed fathers. That’s something I won’t allow now or, of course, when my baby is here.”
In responding to readers’ comments, Monica followed up with:
“Single moms should never think that because of having a child, it’s going to be more difficult to find a future mate.”
I’m not sure about that, but a guy turned off by you having a child isn’t worth having, right?
