Is Penelope Cruz three months pregnant with her second child?

Spanish TV station Antena3 is reporting that Penelope Cruz is three months pregnant with her second child! Penelope and her husband, Javier Bardem, welcomed son Leonardo about 18 months ago, and Penelope has been very open about how much she loves motherhood. I first read this story on ShowbizSpy and viewed it as an unsubstantiated rumor, but a quick translation of the source article almost convinced me. They claim to have two sources close to Penelope who have confirmed the news. This is translated from Spanish using Google translate, so it reads awkwardly, but you get the drift:

A few weeks ago the magazine echoed the news: Penelope Cruz might be pregnant. Now the program Public Mirror has been commissioned to confirm the news exclusively.

Penelope is three months pregnant and expecting her baby later this year. This was confirmed by a source close to the couple, plus another that has been working with the actress in Madrid during the filming of an advertisement of a liquor.

It seems that the good news of the marriage of Penelope and Javier Bardem never get through them: and at the time we learned the name of his son Leo by Santiago Segura … So far have not confirmed the pregnancy, or they and his friend Pedro Almodóvar who prefers to remain silent on the issue.

[From Antena3, translated from Spanish]

So I guess they’re saying they have confirmation, but that close friends of the couple are not going on the record to leak the news before they make the announcement.

Antena3 has a video segment with this story, which I understood none of. They put question marks before and after the question in Spanish about whether Penelope is embarazada (I always read that word like “embarassed” during the Spanish classes I took ages ago and have since forgotten), which makes me think their sources aren’t so solid after all. If one of our Spanish-speaking readers could please watch the show and let me know how certain they sound about this news, I would appreciate it.

Penelope recently did an interview with Hello! in which she may have been hinting at expanding her family. She said “I am very close to my parents, to my brother, to my sister. It’s not something I have to force myself to feel – it’s like a stamp on me, it’s in my blood. So now, in the family of my own that I’m creating, it feels very natural to me to be doing what I do.”

Here are Penelope and Javier out at the airport with little Leo on 6-13. She’s also shown out (in the black jacket) on 6-15 and at the 6-20 premiere of To Rome with Love. She’s barely looking bumpy, but who knows. Congratulations to Penelope and Javier if this is true!

    I´m spanish!
    One of the “presenters” says that someone close to Penelope and Javier has confirmed the news to him and he does sound pretty sure, but that kind of TV program isn´t very… reliable. So I wouldn´t be so sure at the moment. But again, who knows? Penelope and Javier are very discrete with those things.
    Just before she got pregnant from Leo, people were saying she was going to be pregnant soon because they had seen her going to a fertility clinic. She is my age, 37, so… She would hurry before it´s too late.
    It makes sense if she´s pregnant again, considering that she wants more children.

  12. Aqua says:

    Oh,I hope so! Leo sure has gotten big.and the pic of Leo pulling his own suitcase is just adorable!

  13. Nev says:

    he is adorable….sooooooooooo cute.

    CB – In Spanish, question marks are always posted both before (an upside down question mark) and after (a regular q mark) a question.

  15. erica says:

    Oh Javier….*swoon*…and seeing him as a father somehow makes him even sexier. Pene is one lucky mama.

  16. It is ME!! says:

    Adorable kid!

    I approve of this coupling times a million!

  17. Rux says:

    Does anybody remember that her and Tom dated? I always wondered what went down with that. I wonder if she will have anything to say about this TomKat/CO$ mess?! Supposedly, Tom launched Penelope’s career in exchange for dating so I am curious if she signed a confidentiality agreement. Thoughts anyone?

  18. stop the madness says:

    Her son is adorable!

  19. ataylor says:

    I was with my family when I saw her at a theme park back when she was still dating TC. She was surrounded with Scientology-ish/very Secret Service-looking dudes. No one was allowed to talk to her or ask for autographs. I remember her being very stand-offish and closed off. I think I heard her speaking in Spanish to someone in her party. She didn’t look like she was having a good time.

  20. Ruth says:

    That child is just.. absolutely perfect. I have always thought toddlers were far cuter than very young babies..

    Congrats to them if the rumour is true :)

  21. Aqua says:

    How disappointing! Us weekly is saying that this rumor is not true.Oh well!

  22. Ravensdaughter says:

    Leo-cutie! Javier-still HOT! Maybe the fact that he looks so charming with his son makes him look even hotter! You know-same as the guy with a puppy effect!
    Penelope’s purple dress-very unflattering, whether she’s early pregnancy or not. Am I right when I say that you show much earlier after you have your first? I know I did and all the women I worked with during my birthing baby years did as well. I think she’s not, just because the purple dress doesn’t reveal anything that looks like a bump.
