12 January 2013

New York, Jan. 12 (ANI): Penelope Cruz's younger sister Monica has taken help from an anonymous sperm donor to get pregnant.

The 35-year-old lingerie model shared the news on her blog for the Spanish publication El Pais, writing, that she was going to be a mother and had managed to fulfil the dream of a lifetime.

Cruz admitted that she had been worried that she wouldn't find the perfect man in time to start a family, so she had sought help through artificial insemination, the New York Post reported.

She said that she wanted to show her thanks to all those anonymous men, who helped many women like her, achieve the dream of their lives.

The brunette beauty said that she had decided to announce her pregnancy to avoid the flood of inevitable questions that she would have received about the identity of the father.

Monica confessed that she initially felt uneasy about hiding her method to get pregnant but is now happy to have helped make the topic less taboo for other women. (ANI)
