cruz and bardemPenelope Cruz & Javier Bardem

After many, and I mean many false speculations it is finally confirmed. Oscar winner Penelope Cruz and Oscar winner Javier Bardem are expecting a child!!!

The Spanish actress released a statment through her Spanish agency that she is expecting her first child and is 4.5 months along.

Rumors flew when she was shooting scenes for her upcoming film Pirates of the Caribbean when people noticed her baby bump.

In July Penelope and Javier were married in a secret hush-hush ceremony in the Bahamas.

41-year-old Javier Bardem and 36 year old Penelope Cruz are both oscar winners and some of the most recognized faces from Spain. They first worked together at a very young age in the Spanish film Jamón Jamón and were reunited on the set of Woody Allen's Vicky Cristina Barcelona in 2009 for which Cruz achieved an Oscar for Best Supporting Actress.

In 2008, Bardem also won a Best Supporting Actor Oscar for playing in a role as a killer in the Coen brothers’ 2007 film, No Country for Old Men.

She has been quoted saying: 'I'd love to have kids. Maybe I'll adopt about 20 children - that's been my dream since I was a little girl. I want to have my own kids, but also adopt. For a while I've had the feeling that my life won't be complete if I don't adopt."

Congrats to the couple! I calculate that in February the most famous little Spaniard ever will be born!
