The beautiful Spanish sisters are set to be bump buddies as they go through their pregnancies together this year.

Oscar-winning actress Penelope Cruz, 38, is expecting her second child with husband Javier Bardem, according to the New York Post.

The revelation comes just weeks after her sister Monica Cruz, 35, announced she was expecting her first child via anonymous sperm donation.

Penelope and Bardem are already parents to Leonardo, who was born January 2011 at Cedars Sinai Hospital in Los Angeles, just six months after they were married in the Bahamas.

This pregnancy will have the added excitement of being shared with sister Monica, who recently took to her blog for Spanish newspaper El Pais to speak publicly about fulfilling her ‘life’s dream’ of getting pregnant, while addressing the inevitable questions of the father’s identity.

"So I've decided to talk about it: I have resorted to artificial insemination in order to get pregnant," wrote Monica, adding that although she would have preferred to find her dream partner, it came down to the ticking of her biological clock.

"A 40-year-old woman is very young and she feels very young but the maternity thing goes another way. It is measured with another clock that unfortunately we do not control. I've become very informed on the subject. It turns out that after 37 the possibilities of becoming pregnant decrease at an alarming rate."

The stunning sisters are said to be extremely close, and have even worked together on Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides where Monica body-doubled for Pene during her first pregnancy, and as guest designers for luxury lingerie company Agent Provocateur.

While exact due dates are not yet available for either, but congrats to both Cruz’s as they join our 2013 Celebrity Bump Watch list.
