Oscar winning Spanish superstars Penelope Cruz and Javier Bardem are going to be parents for a second time.
Following recent speculation about her “fuller figure,” the New York Post is reporting that Cruz is indeed pregnant with the couple’s second child. She gave birth to son Leo Encinas Bardem in January 2011.
Cruz’s identical twin sister, Monica, is also pregnant. She recently blogged about her decision to use an anonymous sperm donor for the Spanish newspaper El Pais (link in Spanish).
Both Cruz (an Oscar winner for Woody Allen’s “Vicky Cristina Barcelona”) and Bardem (an Oscar winner for the Coen Brothers’ “No Country for Old Men”) will be seen on the big screen later this year in Ridley Scott’s legal thriller “The Counselor” also starring Brad Pitt, Michael Fassbender and Cameron Diaz.
