The extremely private Javier Bardem has confirmed that Penelope Cruz is pregnant and the most beautiful celebrity baby ever is due early next year.
The future father was brief and to the point: "It is true," Javier Bardem said of his beautiful wife's pregnancy in an interview. "I am very happy."
But, adhering to the recently married couple's tradition of keeping mum about private matters, he added: "Don't make me say anything else."
Not that this request prevented journalists at a press conference in Rome for the leading man's movie with Julia Roberts, Eat, Pray, Love, from pressing on.
Has a name been chosen for the recently-married couple's impending arrival, asked a reporter for a national Italian newspaper. "No, not yet," Bardem said.
The key to managing family and career? "It is a little too soon for me to be giving any advice," said the actor. "I don't know yet. But I will find out soon."
Finally, when asked what it's like to be a sex symbol, he replied modestly, "Sex symbol, me? You've got to be kidding." We think not, Javier. We think not.
