The sexy Spanish actor admits that he’s going to be a daddy!
Most guys probably want to tell the whole world when their wife gets pregnant, but hunky superstar Javier Bardem, 41, has been awfully quiet about how his new wife, Penelope Cruz, 37, has been in the family way. Until now, that is. While at a press conference in Rome to promote his movie, Eat, Pray, Love, with Julia Roberts, he finally responded to the rumors — confirmed last week — that Penelope is expecting a little Spaniard.
“It is true,” he told reporters. “I am very happy.” But then, trying to stick to the couple’s policy of being tight-lipped about their private life, he added, “Don’t make me say anything else.”
Javier did reveal a little more, though, like the fact that he and Penelope have not picked out any names yet, that it’s a little too soon for him to be giving any advice about how to manage a career and a family, and that he doesn’t think of himself as a sex symbol, saying, “Sex symbol? Me? You’ve got to be kidding.”
Um, no, Javier, we’re not. Meanwhile, we’ve got some ideas for what you can name your baby (we’ve always liked the Spanish names Marisol, if it’s a girl, and Esteban, for a boy), what do you think? Give us some suggestions in the Comments section below!
