Penelope Cruz is by far one of the most beautiful and sexiest actresses in the world, but little does the world that she has a younger sister who is as beautiful as Penelope.
Monica Cruz was born on March 14, 1977, and she is just as beautiful as her older sister. She is a dancer, model and actress, just not as famous as Penelope, who is three years older than her. Despite this age difference, if they should be put one near another, they can be considered twins.
Monica took part in several worldly events in Spain, where she managed to catch the eyes of everyone’s around her. Throughout her career, Penelope Cruz’s sister has collaborated with the Spanish retailer Mango and the luxury lingerie brand Agent Provocateur. Also, she has starred in films such as “Inquiry” and “Un Paso Adelante”.
It may surprise you, but Monica is single at the moment. She has a daughter, Antonella, who was conceived by artificial insemination. So, the actress is a single mother and she’s very proud of her decision and the life she has.
‘I don’t think this makes me brave. Why is it braver to be a single mother versus being with a partner? Being in a couple and having a child could be more challenging because there might be a conflict if the male partner cannot understand the extreme attachment a woman feels when she has a child.’
‘It was not a decision I took on a whim, but once I had thought about it – and investigated – I knew it had to happen. Being a mother was too important to me to risk running out of time.’ said Monica Cruz during an interview in 2014.
