Penelope Cruz opened up to Vogue magazine about the unexplainable joys of becoming a mother and hoping she can keep her kids from the media spotlight.
Penelope shares that she hopes she and Javier Bardem can do a good job keeping their son Leonardo and any future children out of the glare of the press. “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. ” There are plenty of celebrity parents who manage to keep their kids away from paparazzi, so it isn’t an impossible task.
The new mom and start of the upcoming “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides” also admits that no matter what people said or what you have read, you can’t truly grasp the emotional feelings of giving birth until you go through it yourself. “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. From the first second, you feel so much love. It is a revolutionary experience. 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 were aware of children and felt compassion, when you have your own, it multiplies. It breaks your heart to know that there are so many children in the world suffering so much.”
