First a wedding, now a baby — life couldn’t be better for Penélope as she finishes filming her upcoming movie Pirates of Caribbean: On Stranger Tides!
What great news! Reps confirm that Penélope Cruz, 36, and hubby Javier Bardem, 41, are expecting a baby! “Penelope is four-and-a-half months pregnant,” the rep says — giving her a due date of early February 2011.
This will be the first child for newlyweds Penélope and Javier, who tied the knot in a small ceremony in the Bahamas in early July.
Penélope and Javier, both natives of Spain, originally met back in 1992 but didn’t begin dating until 2007. The couple also co-starred in the 2008 Woody Allen romantic comedy Vicky Cristina Barcelona.
Penelope has made no secret of her desire to have kids, and told Psychologies magazine last year, “When I do it, I want to do it really well. I want it to be my best project in life.”
Congrats to Penélope and Javier on their big news!
