Javier Bardem kept a protective arm around his pregnant wife, Penelope Cruz, while heading out for lunch in London!

Penelope Cruz, 36, and Javier Bardem, 41, cuddled up close while roaming the London streets for a place to grab some lunch. The six-months pregnant mom-to-be was being carefully watched over by her doting hubby, and of course she didn’t mind! She held tightly onto his hand and bundled up next to him as they strolled on the sidewalk. How romantic! The actress looked maternity chic in her all-black ensemble — including a trench and comfy Ugg boots!

The newlyweds, who married in a private Caribbean ceremony in July, announced in September that Penelope was expecting their first child. They are currently in London as Penelope shoots scenes for the new Pirates of the Caribbean movie On Stranger Tides. But there has been some trouble on the set, considering Penelope’s rapidly expanding bump is preventing her from fitting into her tight pirate costumes!

Javier talks about Penelope’s pregnancy!

The costume crew is having trouble hiding the actress’ bump, so they have enlisted her sister, Monica — who looks almost identical — to shoot the long-distance scenes while Penelope shoots the close-ups! Ah, nothing like trying to squeeze yourself into a wardrobe that cuts off your circulation! At least Penelope gets to star alongside the hunky Johnny Depp as Jack Sparrow– she gets to spend time with two gorgeous men each day — one at work and one at home! Lucky girl!
