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, rumors began to swirl that Cruz was expecting another baby. A source later confirmed to PEOPLE that the actors, who are already parents to 2-year-old son Leonardo, were indeed expanding their family.

Cruz, 38, and Bardem, 43, wed in July 2010 in the Bahamas.

Great news!

There son’s name is just Leo, not Leonardo. Still think its weird her sister went with IVF. Here in Spain, women don’t begin to have babies until their mid to late 30s (due to wanting stability in the work). But I wish them both all the best. Must be a nice bonding experience for the two sisters.

Congratulations to 2 lovely people. Have a happy and safe time!

What a beautiful couple and I’m very happy for them!

They really impress me as a couple… both are tremendously talented, balanced and leading their lives quietly, out of the public eye.

Gina- Exactly! She maybe felt that if she waited for “Mr. Right” to come along, it would be too late (I’m talking about Penelope’s sister, btw). Personally, if all she wanted was a sperm donor (rather than a husband or a father who’s active in his child’s life), then I’m glad she actually used one rather than dating some poor guy and then treating him like one!

valeskas- I imagine they probably weren’t allowed to post the news until that issue of HELLO had been on the newstands for a few days, hence the delay!

SophiaAdelle- Actually, his full name IS Leonardo. Penelope confirmed it in Vogue a few months after he was born. 🙂
