Looks like Penélope Cruz and her husband, Javier Bardem, have a lot to celebrate this week! Yesterday morning Javier was nominated for an Oscar and reports have indicated she gave birth in Los Angeles.
According to The New York Post, the birth was mentioned in a Spanish magazine. Hola! reported that Penélope gave birth to a boy at Los Angeles’ Cedars Sinai Hospital last Saturday and it was certainly a family affair! The story mentions she was surrounded by her family which included her sister, brother and mother. Another Spanish publication, El Pais, confirmed the birth in its newspaper but did not indicate its gender.
It should be noted that reps for Penélope and Javier have not released official statement yet about the birth, name and gender. When the private couple made the pregnancy announcement back in September, they didn’t mention the due date or gender. As the Spanish publication notes, Javier alluded to challenges of appearing in public. “We value our privacy [but] it’s difficult for us to appear in public, even thought we’re both used to getting a lot of attention in Spain … but we have a good life.”
All the best to the happy couple!
