It’s official: Penélope Cruz is pregnant!
The actress is “tremendously happy and very excited” to be expecting her second child with husband Javier Bardem, her rep tells Hola!
The confirmation comes after Cruz was unable to travel to her home country of Spain for Sunday’s upcoming Goya Awards — she is nominated for best actress for her role in Volver a Nacer — as she is currently working in the United States.
In January, rumours began to swirl that Cruz was expecting another baby. A source later confirmed to WHO that the actors, who are already parents to 2-year-old son Leonardo, were indeed expanding their family.
“Nature is very wise and gives you nine months to prepare, but in that moment – when you see that face, you are transformed forever,” Cruz, 38, has said of parenthood.
Cruz, 38, and Bardem, 43, secretly wed in July 2010 in the Bahamas.
