Penelope Cruz and Javier Bardem are having another hot baby together, in case you forgot. I sorta did – I forgot all about them, in fact. But they’re still out there, traveling and being beautiful and going to music festivals in the like. That photo above is from the Los Veranos de la Villa Music Festival in Madrid this past Saturday. I’d say there’s a baby in there!
Apparently, she’s due any day now – let’s hope she can hold off til after Kate Middleston gives birth so we can get excited for the SPANISH royal baby. Also, as an aside, I love that Javier looks sort of homeless in this picture. I would probably mistake him for a hobo if it weren’t for the iPhone and, you know, the Penelope Cruz bit of it all.
Penelope Cruz and Javier Bardem are hot, hot, hot (that’s caliente, for our Latina audience) and the best way to perpetuate hotness is by procreating, thereby passing it on to future generations. Then again, it could go the other way and the hotness from the parents could cancel one another out, creating one fugly child. Considering they’ve already done this successfully once before, though, we’ll assume the new baby is going to be muy guapo/a. Shut up, I have to put four years of Spanish to use somehow.
Seriously, though, how adorable was their 2-year-old son Leonardo when he was little? Not that you can really see him all that well in the photo, but oh well:
People broke the news, while also sharing Cruz’s comments on how she was affected by motherhood:
“Nature is very wise and gives you nine months to prepare, but in that moment – when you see that face, you are transformed forever.”
Funny, I was transformed forever just last night when I tried the new Kit Kats with peanut butter. Different strokes, different folks. Congrats to the happy couple!
Let me just get this out of the way: I don’t care about Penelope Cruz. I’m not saying that she’s a bad person, and I’m not saying that she’s not mind-numbingly pretty, I’m just saying that in this world of Biebers and Lohans and Pattinsons, I simply don’t have enough room in my heart for every single celebrity.
That being said, Penelope just did the June issue of Vogue, and in addition to her lovely photo shoot, she also managed to say something that might get her a pass to my heart:
When Cruz first moved to Los Angeles, she spoke little English and lived in a tiny hotel room she shared only with cats. Cats, plural. “I was very lonely,” she says. “I would find cats in the street and take them with me. I raised a lot of cats in that period.”
Oh, Penelope. You were a cat lady? I love that, I sincerely do. Can’t you just see her hoarding cats in some rundown hotel, nursing poor little strays back to health and confiding all her thoughts, hopes, and dreams to them?
Welcome to my Good List, Penny!
