Penélope Cruz 'planning more kids'

Penélope Cruz

Penélope Cruz has apparently always dreamed of having a “big family”.

The actress is currently pregnant with her second child with husband Javier Bardem. It has been claimed the 38-year-old star loves motherhood so much she has her heart set on raising four kids.

“Penélope has said she wants two more children after this – it’s her dream to have a big family,” a source told British magazine Closer.

Penélope and Javier announced in February that they were “tremendously happy and very excited” to expecting another baby. They already raise two-year-old son Leo and it seems Penélope is coping well with looking after a toddler and being pregnant.

“Penélope is over the moon. She thought it may be more difficult to conceive in her late 30s but it happened fairly quickly and she says she’s feeling great,” the source added. “She is absolutely glowing from the inside out and said she loves the feeling of being pregnant – she even thinks she has more energy than normal!”

Penélope opened up about motherhood shortly after son Leo was born in 2011.

“From the first second, you feel so much love. That's the best way I can describe it. It transforms you completely, in a second,” she explained.

Penélope has also said that being a mother was a “revolutionary experience” for her.

The Vanilla Sky actress began dating 44-year-old Skyfall actor Javier in 2007 and the couple married in July 2010 in the Bahamas.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Sagittarius:

Working in isolation doesn't suit you. You're a social creature who gets your best ideas when collaborating with others. Unfortunately, that's not possible right now. Resign yourself to this difficult situation. If you do a good job, you'll pave the way for bigger and better assignments. Part of the problem is you lack experience. The only way to get the training you need is to do some volunteer work. Making a temporary sacrifice will eventually pay off. Be patient.More
