Penelope Cruz and Javier Bardem Name Their Baby GirlSarah Bernard
Even though Penelope Cruz, 39, looked like this as recently as two weeks ago, the Oscar-winner and her Oscar-winner husband Javier Bardem, 44, never confirmed they were expecting again.
When their daughter arrived on July 22nd — the same day as Prince George— there was no official statement or smug tweet about how psyched her big brother was, or flashy magazine spread planned. When Kate Middleton went into labor they were probably thrilled for the cover the Royal Baby provided.
But now we finally have a bit of news. According to Spanish magazine Vanitatis, Javier visited Madrid’s central registrar’s office to officially give their daughter the name Luna Encinas Cruz.
Encinas is Bardem’s first surname. Maybe they went with an “L” to go with Leonardo, little Luna’s 2 1/2 year old big brother.
How rare is this? Penelope has said that her greatest wish for her kids is privacy. In a Vogue magazine interview, she revealed, “I want my son and my kids — if I have more — to grow up in a way that is as anonymous as possible.”
