Shortly after welcoming her first child, Penelope said she felt like motherhood completely changed her.

She explained: "From the first second, you feel so much love. It is a revolutionary experience. That's the best way I can describe it. 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."

The 'Nine' star also wants her family to have a normal life.

She recently said: "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 we do doesn't give anybody the right to invade our privacy."
