cruz and bardem's baby boy!

Penelope Cruz and Javier Bardem are celebrating more than just Bardem's Oscar nod as the husband and wife welcome their first child -- a boy!

This must have a surreal time for actors Penelope Cruz and Javier Bardem. Bardem not only received an Academy Award nomination for his work in Biutiful, he and wife Penelope Cruz are also celebrating their newborn baby boy. We can only imagine the variety of congratulation cards and balloons the first-time parents received.

cruz and bardem's baby boy!

The Spanish newspaper El Pais is reporting that the new addition to the Cruz-Bardem household was born at Cedars Sinai Hospital in L.A. but one minor detail was missing -- his name.

Originally when news broke of the baby's birth, the sex was a mystery as. Hola! magazine confirmed the baby is indeed a healthy boy, so all we have to do is wait for a name.

Penelope Cruz first gave fans a glimpse of her little baby belly in September while she was in Puerto Rico filming her highly anticipated movie Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides. She couldn't hide it even from Puerto Rico.

Penelope Cruz has the fondest regards for Javier Bardem as both her husband and a professional. She once said, "He's a friend and the best actor in the world."

Congratulations go out to Penelope Cruz and Javier Bardem on the birth of their first child.
