Monica Cruz is going to be a mom! A stunningly gorgeous one, since she’s a carbon copy of her older sister, Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides star Penelope Cruz. Monica’s bundle of joy will join cousin Leo, Penelope’s son with actor Javier Bardem, on the Cruz family tree.

The 35-year-old model announced her pregnancy in a blog post for Spanish newspaper El Pais, revealing that she used an anonymous sperm donor. Monica is being courageously transparent about the fact that although she would have preferred to find the man of her dreams to have a baby with, she just couldn’t wait any longer to become a mommy.

We applaud Monica for sharing her personal story with the public and appreciate that when it came time for her to have a baby, she listened to her heart. After all, when that clock starts ticking, it just can’t be ignored!
