Vicky Christina Barcelona stars and now-spouses Penélope Cruz and Javier Bardem found themselves with some  free time last week, reports People. The couple, who just had their first child together, were able to get away for a romantic dinner in London at Gordon Ramsay. Onlookers say the two couldn’t keep their hands off of each other and that they were looking very cozy.

How do you find time for romance when you have a baby?

Cupid’s Advice:

It’s easy to focus all of your attention on your new bundle of joy, but in order to main both your sanity and your relationship, make sure to take some time out to focus on romance:

1. Schedule it: It may not be the most romantic idea, but if you don’t schedule some alone time, no one will.  So make dinner reservations for two, and get a babysitter.

2. Find a pattern: Does your baby’s nap time always seem to fall around the same time as when your partner gets home?  Take advantage of it, and cuddle together in the rare silence.  Just make sure there’s a baby monitor nearby in case both of you fall asleep.

3. Create inside jokes: Nobody will be spending more time around your newborn than you and your spouse.  To create a connection during a less than private time, mention something that only your honey will understand.  The inside information will bring a smile to his face.
