Penelope Cruz's younger sister Monica has admitted that she turned to an anonymous sperm donor to get pregnant. Monica, 35, was worried that she would not meet the man of her dreams in time to start a family and so sought help through artificial insemination. The model revealed the truth about her pregnancy on her web based blog for Spanish newspaper El País.
Monica, who models for luxury lingerie brand Agent Provocateur, said that she would have preferred to wait for a perfect match but feared 'it would then be too late for motherhood and [I] could not wait'.
