Penelope Cruz is four-and-a-half months pregnant with her first child, her agent confirmed today (14th September 2010). The Press Association quoted the 36-year-old's representative as saying, "Penelope Cruz is four-and-a-half months pregnant. At the moment she is on her way to London where the filming of Pirates of the Caribbean 4 is almost finished".
Speculation of Cruz's first child have been rife since she married the Spanish actor Javier Bardem back in July, and initial reports that the actress was expecting surfaced yesterday. However, further details now confirm that Cruz is almost half way through her pregnancy. The couple first got to know each other whilst they filmed 'Jamon, Jamon', back in 1992, and they reappeared alongside each other in Woody Allen's 'Vicky Christina Barcelona', which earned Cruz an Oscar award for 'Best Supporting Actress'.
Cruz is currently filming 'Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides', which is the fourth movie in the franchise - Jerry Bruckheimer is directing the film which also stars Johnny Depp and Ian McShane. Bardem's latest role was alongside Julia Roberts in the romantic drama 'Eat, Pray, Love', which was released in the US on August 13th 2010, the film was produced by Brad Pitt.
