Congratulations are in order! Penelope Cruz and hubby Javier Bardem are expecting their second child! The happy couple welcomed their first baby, a boy named Leo, back in January of 2011. The adorable couple met back in 2008, when they were filming Woody Allen’s movie “Vicky Christina Barcelona”, began dating, and later married. The couple live in Madrid, Spain.

Rumors had been swirling about the couple having a second child for a few months now. Eyebrows were raised when the two chose to skip the Golden Globes this year and stay at home in Madrid. Now we know! A “source” close to the couple says that Penelope is around 3 or 4 months pregnant. This will give Penelope and her sister Monica, a chance to bond even more, as Monica prepares to give birth later this summer as well! Congratulations to both of these beautiful ladies!
After her pregnancy was confirmed, it seems that Penelope finally came out of “hiding” and started showing off her growing belly everywhere! The beautiful actress was seen showing off her adorable baby bump while on vacation in Barbados just a few weeks ago. With a son already together, she is sure to be hoping to get pregnant with a baby girl!
She has been very vocal about keeping her private life private. She told Vogue Magazine back after her son was born:
“I want my son — and my kids if I have more — to grow up in a way that is as anonymous as possible,” Cruz told the magazine. “The fact that his father and I have chosen to do the work that we do doesn’t give anybody the right to invade our privacy.”
It’s so nice to see in this very public time, a couple who pride themselves on keeping both their private lives and the private lives of their children quiet and under wraps. Sometimes it seems that we just know “too much” about celebs, and it’s refreshing to see a family who wants nothing more than to just be a “normal” family.
Penelope and hubby Javier are two busy parents, and this year is looking to be busier than ever for the couple! Penelope is set to appear in the Spanish film, “I’m So Excited,” with Antonio Banderas, later this year. The couple will also appear together in “The Counselor” later this year alongside such big names as Brad Pitt and Cameron Diaz. We are excited to see them together on the big screen, and wish them lots of happiness as they welcome their new bundle of joy!
