The new arrival of a child is the perfect excuse for a family get together.
And it seems Penelope Cruz’s relatives are not an exception. The actress and wife of Javier Bardem, gave birth to a healthy baby boy last week.
And the 36-year-old’s closest family members were on hand to witness every step of the birth.
Penelope’s sister, actress and dancer Monica Cruz (pictured with her brother Eduardo wearing a blue cap), and her mother Encarna remained close to the star throughout the birth in an LA hospital.
Eduardo, who also lives in Hollywood, was pictured hugging and congratulating his brother-in-law, Javier, outside the hospital days earlier.
