Her husband Spanish actor Javier Bardem has been nominated for an Oscar in the 'best actor" category for his performance in the 2010 movie Biutiful. So it is a double celebration for the couple.
Penelope even kept the news of her pregnancy a secret until she was almost five months with the baby. The couple, who tied the knot last July in Bahamas, kept their relationship also a private affair. They first met on the set of the Spanish movie Jamon in 1992 but they started dating after 15 years in 2007.
On Wednesday, the spokeswoman of the actress informed about the birth of their baby boy. The New York publicist spokeswoman of Cruz said that the couple has welcomed their first son into the family. She informed that the mother and the baby are in good health now. She did not disclose about the place of birth of the baby but according to the Spanish media, the boy was born in a hospital in Los Angeles.
We congratulate the couple for their first baby and wish good health to the family.
