Penélope Cruz showed off her baby bump to the world as she frolicked in a black string bikini on the beach in Barbados, where she and her husband, actor Javier Bardem, vacationed last week.
Spanish magazine ¡Hola! published the first photos of the “Pirates of the Caribbean” actress.
In the photos, Cruz looks happy and relaxed. Us Weekly magazine also published the photos and showed Cruz playing with the couple's son Leo, 2.
Cruz, 38, and the rest of her entourage stayed at the Sandy Lane Hotel, where rooms go for more than $1,000 a night.
As Fox News Latino reported, news of her pregnancy made headlines in early February after Cruz was seen looking much curvier. A close friend confirmed the baby news.
Cruz appeared this qwwk singing in a sensual video with Spanish singer Miguel Bosé, but did not look pregnant in the clip.
Cruz and Bardem tied the knot in July of 2010. They dated for three years before getting married.
In an interview with Vogue magazine back in 2011, Cruz talked about being a first-time mom.
"From the first second, you feel so much love," she said.
While talking to reporters during the premier of her latest flick, “Venuto al Mondo (Twice Born) in Madrid, she said motherhood has been “a revolutionary experience.”
“It transforms you completely, in a second,” said Cruz. “Nature is very wise and gives you nine months to prepare, but in that moment, when you see that face, you are transformed forever."
