During filming scenes for the 2011 blockbuster “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides,” her renowned sister Penélope Cruz unexpectedly became pregnant in 2010. Near the end of the shooting, it was more obvious that she was pregnant.

Mónica Cruz Husband, Daughter

Mónica Cruz is not married and is currently single. Yet, rumors suggest that she had a romantic involvement with Fabián Mazzei in the past. We could affirm that Mónica is the mother of a daughter, regardless of the privacy of details on her present relationship. On May 14, 2013, she gave birth to a daughter, whom she named Antonella Cruz Sánchez (9 years old).

My understanding indicates that she used artificial insemination to conceive Antonella, her daughter. This means that she does not know and possibly will never know who her daughter’s father is.
