It’s a baby boy for Hollywood star Penelope Cruz who gave birth to her first child, the same day that husband Javier Bardem received an Oscar nod.
The Academy award winning actress gave birth to the baby on Tuesday, but the notoriously private couple had not disclosed the child’s gender.
A spokesman for the couple told Entertainment Tonight, "Penelope and Javier welcomed their first son into their family last week."
The 36-year-old actress gave birth in Los Angeles at the world-renowned Cedars Sinai hospital.
Earlier this month, Leonardo DiCaprio and Israeli model Bar Refaeli attended the couple’s baby shower at their Los Angeles mansion.
Penelope married fellow Spaniard Bardem at a low-key ceremony in the Caribbean in July with only a few relatives present.
The pair started dating in 2007 after starring together in the Woody Allen movie Vicky Cristina Barcelona.
The couple have known one another for 19 years after meeting on the set of Penelope’s debut film, the Spanish comedy drama ‘Jamon Jamon’, when the actress was 18.(PTI)
