Confirmed: Penelope Cruz Pregnant with Second Child

It’s official: After weeks of dodging pregnancy rumors, Penelope Cruz has confirmed that she has another bun in the oven. The Oscar winner is expecting her second child with hubby Javier Bardem.

The All the Pretty Horses star already has a two-year-old son, Leo, with the fellow Academy Award champ and Skyfall actor, 43. Penelope will not travel from the U.S. to attend the Goya Awards in Spain on Feb. 17 because of her pregnancy. The beauty, 38, is nominated for Best Leading Actress at the ceremony and is said to be “extremely happy and very excited” with the news but is in no mood to take a long haul flight.

Penelope and Javier — who had been friends for years — became romantically involved after appearing together in Woody Allen’s 2008 film Vicky Cristina Barcelona. The couple married in July 2010 in a private ceremony at a friend’s home in the Bahamas.
