Penelope Cruz has a baby boy

Penelope Cruz gave birth to her first baby, a boy, last week

Actress Penelope Cruz has given birth to her first baby according to reports released recently. Penelope Cruz and Javier Bardem are the proud new parents of a bouncing baby boy. A spokeswoman for the actress confirmed that the actress gave birth to a son last week. She said “both parents and baby are doing great”.

It didn’t take long for ‘Captain Correlli’s Mandolin’ star Penelope to start a family after marrying fellow up and coming movie star, Javier, in a private ceremony in July 2010.


The couple first worked together on the set of Jamon Jamon, and began dating after starring in Woody Allen’s Vicky Cristina Barcelona.

They tied the knot in a low-key ceremony in the Bahamas last July and Penelope was spotted with a baby bump on the set of Pirates Of The Caribbean 4: On Stranger Tides.

Javier, 41, is up for a best actor award following his performance in Biutiful, said he feels “very happy” to become a first-time dad.


Oscar-winner Penelope, 36, had spoken about her desire for motherhood, saying: “I think I would be a perfect mother. I love babies.”
