It is often said that becoming a mother can truly change a person and, in the majority of cases that certainly seems to ring true. It does not really matter who you are, you cannot help but be affected by the whole experience of carrying your child before giving birth to it. It really is a wonderful experience.
Hollywood actress Penelope Cruz has two children, Leonard 21 months and Luna five months, with her husband Javier Bardem, who she married back in 2010. Penelope is already back in fantastic shape and she recently spoke about motherhood and how it changes you as a person.
Cruz explained, "It changes everything in your life. It's also going to change the way you approach your work and the way you understand a character like this."
Penelope also went on to talk about the fact that she also makes sure that she breast feeds her children, revealing her reasons for doing so. She added, "That's an amazing thing for babies, but it's also really good for the mother because it regulates your body again after pregnancy."
As for her acting career, Penelope Cruz most recently appeared in the movie The Counselor, alongside her husband Javier Bardem, while she also has three movies that are currently in development. It is always difficult to find a balance between you working life and bringing up a family but Penelope certainly seems to be doing a good job.
