Initially the model and actress kept the pregnancy a secret, but realised that she could shine a positive light on becoming a single mum through sperm donation. Monica recently said “To become pregnant, I turned to artificial insemination, I want to tell my story, so I can share my thanks to all those anonymous men out there that have helped many women like me, to have a child.” Monica hopes to encourage women who have doubts about sperm donation to look to her for inspiration. Meanwhile her famous sibling Penelope, is also currently pregnant with her second child with fellow Spanish actor, Javier Bardem.
