The Hollywood actress and Javier Bardem are expecting their first child
Spanish starlet Penelope Cruz is four and a half months pregnant with her first baby with new hubby Javier Bardem, her spokesperson has confirmed.
The private pair married back in July, in an intimate ceremony in the Bahamas, but kept things under the radar, with a rep speaking only to confirm the ceremony, and to reveal the bride wore a dress by Galliano.
Since the nuptials, Javier and Penelope have fought off persistent pregnancy rumours, and the Hollywood rumour mill went into overdrive with talk that the secretive star is expecting, after pictures of Pen sporting a rather round tummy emerged.
Following the publication of the shots, her spokesperson issued a statement confirming the couple were expecting their first baby.
Penelope has made no secret of wanting a family, and in the past spoken out about her wish to have children. 'When I [have babies], I want to do it really well. I want it to be my best project in life. I don’t know if I believe in marriage. I believe in family, love and children,' she revealed in August last year.
