Penelope Cruz has been waxing lyrical about motherhood and her son with gorgeous actor Javier Bardem. She also seems to be preparing to be an embarrassing parent, and wants him to grow up anonymously.
The Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides star spoke candidly about being a new parent in an interview with US Vogue, saying:
"From the first second, you feel so much love. It is a revolutionary experience. That’s the best way I can describe it. It transforms you completely, in a second.
"Nature is very wise and gives you nine months to prepare, but in that moment - when you see that face, you are transformed forever. Even if you have heard from all your friends and family, 'This is what’s going to happen', until it happens to you, it's hard to understand in your soul."
She and Javier have decided that their children should grow up as unaffected by the media as possible, so we're unlikely to see them posing with their newborn on tabloid covers:
"I want my son - and my kids if I have more - to grow up in a way that is as anonymous as possible.
"The fact that his father and I have chosen to do the work that we do doesn’t give anybody the right to invade our privacy."
But I'm thinking that Penelope is going to embarrass him as he grows up, especially if she drags him to the karaoke bars she seems to be obsessed with:
"I've gone to karaoke bars in almost every city I have been to. Every time I am on a movie location, we find a karaoke bar and take the crew."
Yeah, sounds like she has the embarrassing parent thing down already!
