In January 2011, Penélope Cruz and her husband Javier Bardem welcomed their first son. Reps for the couple said "Both parents and baby are doing great."
Penélope and Javier, 41, married in the Bahamas back in July when she was two months pregnant. The duo has known each other for many years, they starred in 1992's Jamón, jamón together in addition to Vicky Cristina Barcelona in 2008.
Penelope-Cruz.org would like to extend our biggest congratulations to the lovely couple!

"It takes discipline for me to stop worrying in general. It has been in my nature always. I'm as driven, or more, but about more specific things and appreciating the balance between the time for work and the time for yourself. You have to live."
After nearly 10 months, we finally have a new look here on Penelope-Cruz.org! While I was proud to showcase Penélope’s historic Oscar win this past year, we definitely needed a change, and what better that to celebrate the upcoming release of Nine! After all, Pe is getting tons of awards buzz again! I am extremely excited for the film and the promotional images our her are to die for. Also be sure to check out the matching but also different theme in the gallery.

Miss Cruz was truly the definition of vision in red at the New York premiere of Nine last night! She dazzled and every inch was pure perfection! One of my very favorite looks of hers in quite some time! Take note, this is how it’s done people! Her stunning co-stars all opted for shades of black and white and Pe opted for some va-va-voom as you might notice in the photos – not like that’s a bad thing ;)
On Wednesday, Oprah will be airing the encore broadcast special with the Nine cast. She chats with Daniel Day-Lewis, Nicole Kidman, Penelope Cruz, Kate Hudson and Marion Cotillard about their new musical. Be sure to tune in if you missed its entirety the first time around!

I am sorry for not being her to update Penelope-Cruz.org during this amazing promotion time for Penelope (Nine) buts it due to my personal life at this moment. However I will hopefully be back in a few more weeks and can bring you all the latest.
To briefly keep up, check Wire Image for the latest pictures of events, and watch two of her latest interviews with David Letterman and Oprah Winfrey below!
A rehearsal montage from the forthcoming musical Nine has just been released. Put out via Yahoo! Movies, the two-minute video features a number of scenes from the film intercepting footage of the rehearsals for the song-and-dance numbers. Penelope Cruz, Kate Hudson, Stacy Ferguson aka Fergie, Marion Cotillard and Nicole Kidman are some of actresses seen.
The celebrity guest appearances keep on coming for the sequel to the blockbuster Sex and the City film. OK! has learned that Penélope Cruz is the latest A-lister to hop on the Sex And The City 2 bandwagon. The Oscar-winner just filmed a cameo appearance, playing herself on the red carpet. This via OKMagazine.
Joining already confirmed guest appearances by Hannah Montana star Miley Cyrus and Liza Minnelli. (Minnelli will be belting out a rendition of Beyonce’s “Single Ladies” during the wedding between Stanford and Anthony—for which Parker’s Carrie Bradshaw will serve as best man.)
The new movie, which has a May 28, 2010, release date, is going to be a star-studded affair.
Penélope Cruz attended the closing night premiere and press conference of Broken Embraces at the NY Film Festival on October 11th. For the premiere she wore a silvery grey Haider Ackermann Fall 2009 ensemble. While at the press conference she wore an Alexander McQueen Houndstooth check pencil dress and black satin pumps (my favorite of the two). Broken Embraces has already been released in Spain and the UK (among other countries) earlier this year and will have a limited US run beginning in November.
What actress doesn’t dream of reliving Fellini’s magic? Here, a head-spinning lineup of A-list stars join forces in Rob Marshall’s movie-musical Nine. Plum Sykes visits them on set. Photographed by Annie Leibovitz.
Shepperton Studios, London, on a bleak December day. Shrouded in a freezing fog, the lot seems faintly neglected, as though abandoned. The various buildings—prop shops, costume houses—look like little more than sheds. A car drops me off at a side door to a soundstage, where a harried but friendly publicist meets me.
Inside, it’s as though a magician has waved his wand. Suddenly I am transported half a century back in time to the Italy of La Dolce Vita. To my left is an empty set-within-a-set of a Roman piazza, and to my right is a bustling re-creation of a 1960s movie studio. An intricate scaffolding of iron balconies and stairwells has been built in front of the corrugated walls of the soundstage. Nowhere, it turns out, could be more perfect for Rob Marshall to direct the song-and-dance numbers for Nine, his latest movie, because the bones of Shepperton have an uncanny resemblance to the Cinecittà of Fellini’s 8½, the inspiration for Maury Yeston’s 1982 Broadway musical Nine, on which this film is based.
Pedro Almodóvar made his regular New York Film Festival pit stop Wednesday, bringing his new film-industry love quadrangle Broken Embraces to town ahead of its closing-night presentation this weekend. His star and longtime muse Penélope Cruz joined him for a press conference following yesterday’s screening, but at this festival — perhaps the most abjectly cinephilic in the world — Almodóvar proved himself once again as the one person who can outshine the planet’s biggest international sexpot.
