Javier Bardem has confirmed that he and wife Penelope Cruz are expecting a baby, but that was all he was saying! The couple, who tend to keep quiet about their personal life, made it official after Cruz was spotted out last week sporting a baby bump. In Rome for a press conference for Bardem’s latest movie, Eat, Pray, Love the actor was asked about the baby.
“It is true, I am very happy.” Followed by a very private, “Don’t make me say anything else.”
People magazine reports that he was also asked by an Italian newspaper if they had a name chosen yet, to which he responded; “No, not yet,” I’m pretty sure that kind of question is asked to see if they know if they’re having a boy or a girl, although even if they do I’m sure they won’t be eager to share that information with the public.
He was also asked if he had any advice on managing a family and a career at the same time, to which he replied; “It is a little too soon for me to be giving any advice, I don’t know yet. But I will find out soon.”
Oh yes Javier, you will! I’m very excited for this couple, because they seem so genuine. I like that they like to keep their private life private, and that they managed to keep her pregnancy a secret until they were ready to reveal it. I also think that whether they have a boy or a girl that is going to be one beautiful baby!
