Penelope Cruz was positively glowing on the red carpet at the London premiere of her new film The Counselor on Thursday, Oct. 3 — and for good reason!

The mom of two cut a stunning figure in a navy blue-and-gold dress that hugged her curves and showed just enough skin through the patterned lace sleeves.

Cruz, 39, paired her look with a tiny, shiny copper clutch, her hair worn loose and casual around her shoulders. The actress and husband Javier Bardem, 44, welcomed baby girl Luna on July 22 in Madrid, on the same day that Kate Middleton and Prince William welcomed their own little Prince George.

The couple are also parents to 2-year-old son Leonardo.

Cruz and Bardem first confirmed that they were expecting again in February 2013, with the Oscar-winning actress telling Spanish TV station TVE! that she was "tremendously happy and excited" about being a mom once more.

In 2011, the usually private actress opened up to Vogue about how motherhood had changed everything for her.

"From the first second, you feel so much love," she told the June 2011 issue. "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."
