Penelope Cruz and Javier Bardem are reportedly engaged.
Penelope Cruz and Javier Bardem are close to hearing wedding bells, a source tells NY Daily News
A source close to the couple said, “They tried to keep it very private and quiet,” explaining that Cruz wanted to wed the 40-year-old Bardem to appease Cruz’s catholic parents since rumor has it that Penelope is pregnant but has previously denied.
The rumor of her pregnancy came just after the actress was seen exiting an OBGYN in Madrid, but close friends of the Spanish couple won’t say whether or not the actress is with child.
Bardem and Cruz has a long history on and off screen together, beginning with the film “Jamón Jamón,” where the then-16 Penelope and then-21 Javier became real-life lovers, but the relationship ended shortly. In 1997, the two reunited for the film “Live Flesh” and again most recently for the Woody Allen 2008 film “Vicky Cristina Barcelona.”
