Late last night, Penelope Cruz and Javier Bardem announced their marriage – most of us are really happy for them, because who can really deny the dual hotness of these Spaniards? If I was around either of them, I’d probably try to marry one or both of them too. So it’s surprising that it took several hours for someone to start in with the “shotgun wedding” rumors. That’s right – according to Life & Style, Javi and Pene got married because she’s knocked up:
Life & Style can reveal exclusively that Penélope Cruz and husband Javier Bardem are expecting their first child.
Last night, Penélope’s rep confirmed she and Javier quietly married at a friend’s house in the Bahamas this month. It was an intimate affair, with only close family present.
Penélope wore a dress designed by John Galliano.
A movie insider tells Life & Style that the couple wanted to get married before their baby arrives next year.
The Spanish actress is currently filming Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, the fourth installment of the franchise, in the Bahamas. She’s playing the feisty daughter of Blackbeard played by Ian McShane, the nemesis of Johnny Depp’s character, Jack Sparrow.
“There’s a little romance between [Depp's] Captain Jack and the character that Penélope plays,” producer Jerry Bruckheimer said recently.

Now, Penelope’s womb-watch has been making headlines for more than a year. Last summer, beginning with the 2009 Cannes Film Festival, most tabloids were reporting that she was knocked up. When Pene went on publicity tours to promote her films last fall, she got constant pregnancy questions, which annoyed her to no end. Personally, I’m a little tired of Womb Watch, just because I’ve been wrong about her before. If she is pregnant, congratulations to them, and that is going to be one hot Spanish baby. But I’ll wait for a solid confirmation.
UPDATE: Penelope’s rep is denying the pregnancy rumor. Oh well. NO HOT SPANISH BABIES FOR YOU. Also, do you know why I abbreviate or give celebrities nicknames? Because I’m lazy and I don’t want to type it out a million times. It’s easier to type “Pene” and “Javi” and “Sparkles” and “Camy”. I’M LAZY.
