Penelope Cruz, who gave birth to her son Leo in January, so far has experienced beautiful things being a mom.
“Everybody tells you things change. And then all those cliches, all those things you hear about having a baby and motherhood — all of them are true,” Penelope said.
“And all of them are the most beautiful things you will ever experience. So yes, your priorities change. It’s from the second you see that little face, your life has changed forever.”
The actress found out she was pregnant shortly before starting to film Pirates of the Carribean: On Stranger Tides, which meant she needed to share the exciting news first with director Rob Marshall and star Johnny Depp.
“I found out I was pregnant and I had to tell Johnny and Rob. First for safety, second for honesty,” she said.
“It made for a very interesting shoot — especially it being an action movie. There were a few things I had been in training for before filming, before I knew I was pregnant, in rehearsals that had to be changed.
“And my outfits kept, well, evolving. I wasn’t able to do any of the more dangerous shots, obviously. But the sword fights became more like choreography, more like dance. But everything was very safe and I felt very protected. I couldn’t have done it any other way.”
