Penelope Cruz is keeping Pedro Almodovar up-to-date with her son Leo's growth progress by sending the director photos of the tot every two weeks.
The actress gave birth to little Leo, her first child with actor husband Javier Bardem, in January (11) and has been sharing her motherhood adventures with her pal Almodovar by giving him regular updates.
And the Spanish filmmaker admits he's thrilled to see his actress muse happier than ever.
Almodovar says, "She wanted to really experience being a mother in a complete way. She sends me photos of the baby every 15 days. I see how he's growing. He has an incredibly big smile, you cannot imagine. He's beautiful, gorgeous and he's big.
"She's shooting in Italy. She's the most happy (she's ever been). Better than always! She's with a man who she loves. She's a really avocational mother. In all my movies she plays a mother. She always said, 'I want to be a mother.'"
