Penélope Cruz & Javier Bardem Expecting a Baby

09/14/2010 at 07:00 AM ET

The question of whether it’s a baby bump or a costume has been answered: “Penélope is 4½-months pregnant,” reps for Penélope Cruz and husband Javier Bardem confirm.

Photos of Cruz, 36, on the set of her upcoming movie, Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, had sparked buzz that the recently married actress was expecting.

Cruz was snapped in Puerto Rico sporting a flowing top and a possible bump.

Yay! Congratulations to them! I thought so after those pictures yesterday.

Also, there seems to be a definite baby boom going on in Hollywood right now. So many celebs are expecting!

If they have a boy, I wonder if he’ll grow up looking like Javier AND if Jeffrey Dean Morgan’s son grows up looking like him…. we could have a new set of look-a-likes 😉

cécile on

Yes.One of my pregnancy predictions for this year is finally right.(I know my girlfriends and I have not the brightest games sometimes!).

@ Jaz

Glad I’m not the only one who thinks those two could be brothers. I mix them up all the time when I first see them on something.

Jordan, everyone gets JDM and Javier confused! They look so much alike it’s scary sometimes!

Lady on

I knew it lol, when I saw these pictures yesterday I thought it couldn’t just be a big lunch…Congrats to them…their baby is sure to be gorgeous!!!!

Allie-Rose on

I think her boob size gave it away it wasn’t her costume.

Congratulations to Penélope and Javier

Jacqui on

Good for them! Why did I think Penelope was older than 36?

Paige on

Harley on

Congratulations to the happy couple! How fantastically amazing! Haha, I’m glad we all get Javier and Jeffrey confused right off the bat! Yeah…the boobs gave it away more than the belly for me, because that could have been a prop lol. Either way, how wonderful for the families 🙂

Crystal on

CONGRATULATIONS!!! ♥ Penelope and Javier! I’m wondering something and maybe you guys can help me out. Remember when all those pregnancy rumors started to surface? Was she pregnant then? Can’t remember when the rumors started or when they got really strong. I want to say it was before she actually got pregnant but not really sure. Help please!! 🙂

@crystal, Penelope was 5 months along in late July (according to my friend who is filming the movie) so she closer to 7 months pregnant. I think celebs lie to keep paps away from them when they think the celebs are due to give birth.

Sarah S. on

I am thinking she’s more than 4 1/2 months along–just to confuse the paps of the actual delivery…

Patrice on

This is such wonderful news! Good for them : )

Devon on

People get Jeffery Dean Morgan and Javier Bardem confused? Javier is pure sex and JDM is…dead Denny.

Congrats to Penelope and Javier. A beautiful baby on the way!

iz on

yes!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! i think they are the spanish brangelina. they are both GORGEOUS and their baby is going to be twice as gorgeous! i’m so happy!

jessicad on

Wow I thought Javier was Denny! They are both gorgeous then:) Congrats to them though, baby will be gorgeous!

torgster on

How can anybody think Javier and JDM look alike? I don’t see it in any way. I mean really, their complexions aren’t even in the same range! In any case, they are both to die for lol.

Lauren on

I definitely think Jeffrey and Javier look alike, just like I find it truly frightening how much Will Ferrell looks like Chad Smith from the Red Hot Chili Peppers. Google it-the resemblance is unbelievable.

Congrats to Penelope and Javier! Definitely think they fudged how far along she is-there have been pregnancy rumors floating around since the spring-but we’ll know soon enough!

CelebBabyLover on

Lauren- That doesn’t mean the Spring pregnancy rumors were true, though! Anyway, looking at that picture, I’d be absolutely shocked to find out she’s any more than 4 1/2 months along! I mean, she barely has a belly! Also, if she really WERE seven months along, what’s she going to do when the baby is born in just two months? Claim she gave birth three months prematurely?

I totally believe she may be fudging things a bit, but only by a few weeks or so. Maybe even a month. But THREE months? I just find that hard to believe!

Allie-Rose on

CelebBabyLover – I saw other pictures on another website, and Penélope’s belly looked bigger, so she could be 1 or 2 months further than what her rep stated

J on

Smart woman, landing Javier. He’s a hunk.

fuzibuni on

SO exciting! I squealed with joy and clapped my hands like a giddy school girl when i saw this post. My boyfriend trotted in from the other room, wanting to know what was going on. I said two of my all time favorite actors are having a baby together! The bf just stared and shook his head. He doesn’t get it, but that’s okay… i still think it’s trilling 🙂

C on

Congrats to them. Now we know why they got married! She was already pregnant…

FC on

I love Javier and Penelope as a couple, and I was excited to hear they’re not only married now, but that they’re now expecting. Looking forward to read/hear more.

CelebBabyLover on

C- Or maybe they planned to get married this year all along. 🙂

CelebBabyLover on

C- Also, I’m thinking they got married because, I don’t know, maybe they love each other?

Luna on

I live in Europe and here the news is that she’s 6 months!

LoveCrazyBeautifulLife on

Congrats!!!! At first, when I saw this picture, I thought maybe it was for the movie!!!!!! That’s awesome. Good luck to them.
