Penelope Cruz's father dies

Spanish actress Penelope Cruz is mourning the loss of her father following his death at the age of 62.

Eduardo Cruz passed away at his home in Spain after suffering a heart attack, and the sad news was confirmed to the country's HOLA! Magazine on Thursday (18Jun15) by his brother-in-law.

He had reportedly struggled with heart problems in recent years, and was hospitalised several times as he battled his condition.

Eduardo had three children - actresses Penelope and Monica and singer Eduardo, Jr. - from his marriage to Encarna Sanchez. He wed his second wife, Carmen, in 2014 and they have a three-year-old daughter named Salma.

Cruz, who is married to actor Javier Bardem, is yet to publicly comment on the news.
