Penelope Cruz gives birth to first child



Hollywood actress gave birth to her first child on Tuesday, Spanish newspaper El Pais reported. The actress, who is married to Javier Bardem, has not yet revealed the babies name or sex.

The two stars got married in a lavish Caribbean wedding last July and have been preparing to welcome the child into their family.

Cruz, 36, announced the pregnancy whilst filming the latest Pirates of the Caribbean sequel in September, and will star in the new film, On Stranger Tides.

Husband Javier Bardem, 41, is having a fantastic run at the moment, as he has been nominated for the best actor category at the Oscars for his role in the film Biutiful, as well as becoming a dad.

Both parents are already Oscar winners, giving their child the best possible genes to become a star. Cruz won best supporting actress for her role in Woody Allen’s film, Vicky Christina Barcelona which also starred her husband. Bardem also won a best supporting actor gong, this time for his role in No Country for Old Men.

What’s the odds of their child going on to win an Oscar? I’m sure there will be bookies somewhere taking a bet on that.
