The day in which Penelope Cruz and Javier Bardem reported that they were parents

Los Angeles (USA) / Penelope Cruz and Javier Bardem confirmed today, in a statement sent to EFE by the publicist of the actress in the US, who have been parents of a child whose birth took place last week.

Penelope and Javier welcomed their first child to the family last week. The parents and the baby are well”, says the statement sent by Amanda Silverman, which doesn’t provide any additional information.

The baby, according to Hola magazine, was born last weekend at the Cedars-Sinai hospital in Beverly Hills (Los Angeles, California).

At the moment, the name of the child and its measurements at birth are unknown.

So far, neither the family nor their representatives had confirmed the news.

“Have the parents said anything?” asked the actor’s mother, Pilar Bardem, on Tuesday to the EFE journalist who interrogated him on the phone for the alleged news. And knowing that no, officially the good news had not been confirmed, he said laughing: “Well then, I can’t tell you a thing”.

The advertisers of the actors in Spain and the USA didn’t comment a thing during the day yesterday, when they began to unleash the rumors about the birth.

Privacy

The magazine Hola reproduces some statements by Bardem in which he says he doesn’t want him and his wife to become into the new Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt.

“We appreciate our privacy, for us it’s difficult to appear in public, even though we’re both used to being under a lot of attention in Spain, and it’s even worse for Penelope, but that’s fine. We have a good life”, he said.

The official announcement comes in a moment of happiness for the couple.

This Tuesday, third Oscar nomination for Bardem was announced. This time was as the best leading actor for “Biutiful”, which in turn aims to win the golden statuette for the best foreign film.

“I feel really honored by this nomination. And deeply grateful to the members of the Academy for their trust and support. Also to all those who showed their support for my work in ‘Biutiful’ I express my sincere gratitude”, said the actor in a statement. (January 26, 2011, EFE/Practica Español)
