Big Night

Antonio Banderas brings his daughter Stella and GF Nicole as his special Oscar dates

That first-time nominee brought his two leading ladies as his dates to Hollywood’s biggest night

 Antonio Banderas  has arrived to the Academy Awards with his two leading ladies in tow. On what could be the biggest night of his career, as he is nominated for his first Oscar Award for Best Actor for his role in Pain & Glory, he made sure to keep his daughter  Stella Banderas  and girlfriend  Nicole Kimpel  close by to celebrate with him. Earlier at the Goya Awards in Spain, the actor stated that his daughter would be accompanying him for the award ceremony — making it a truly special family affair for the two.

After a recent health scare, The Hitman's Wife's Bodyguard actor stated that he has refocused his life to what is truly important, time with his only daughter with actress  Melanie Griffith  being one of those things. So it’s no surprise that for his first Oscar nomination he would have both his girlfriend Nicole and his daughter Stella with him to celebrate the big night.
