Empire state of mind!

Mom-to-be Penélope Cruz turned New York’s Empire State Building red Wednesday in honor of World AIDS Day.

The effort is part of (RED)’s campaign to generate support for an AIDS-free generation by 2015.

“The treatment exists to virtually eliminate the chances that an HIV positive mother will pass the virus to her child,” Cruz, 36, said in a statement.

“But we must … ensure funding continues to deliver treatment to all pregnant women who need it.”

@Michelle – Great idea, but I hate to break it to you that you will be way more tired once your LO arrives! And it doesn’t end with babyhood. Our kids find ways to keep us up all the time.

Best wishes to the expecting ladies.

BTW – I love Penelope and this is such a great cause. Too many babies are born with HIV when there is a way to prevent this.

ariana on

I am in love with her baby belly, it’s so round and cute it’s perfect. Wishing them all the best, and it’s great to see a pregnant women come out and support such a important cause that helps other pregnant women.

I’d have to disagree Maritan.

I’m almost 8 months pregnant with my second.

With my first, I found pregnancy, especially the first trimester, much more tiring than caring for a newborn or infant. Toddlerhood is a different story.

And now being pregnant with another while having a toddler, I’ve NEVER been more tired.

It’s not sleepiness, it’s fatigue.
