Report: Penelope Cruz Is Pregnant

ABC/RICK ROWELL(NEW YORK) -- It looks like the fertility earrings Penelope Cruz was seen sporting earlier this month at the Madrid premiere of Venuto Al Mondo worked, because the New York Post reports the actress is pregnant with her second child.

Cruz and husband Javier Bardem are already parents to Leo Encinas Bardem, who was born in January 2011 in Los Angeles.

Pregnancy rumors were sparked earlier this month when Cruz was seen wearing a swath of tiny studs in her ear, called auriculotherapy, a form of acupuncture used to fight stress, pain and infertility.

Penelope Cruz: I Want My Son’s Life to Be 'As Anonymous As Possible'

Venturelli/WireImage(NEW YORK) -- Actress Penelope Cruz became emotional as she talked to Vogue about her son Leonardo, born in January.  Cruz, who found out she was pregnant only weeks before hitting the set of Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, told the magazine, “From the first second, you feel so much love. It is a revolutionary experience. It transforms you completely, in a second.”

Leonardo is Cruz’s first child with husband Javier Bardem.  Because both are constantly in the spotlight, she says they knew they had a decision to make regarding their son and the media. The actress told the magazine, “I want my son -- and my kids if I have more -- to grow up in a way that is as anonymous as possible.” She continued, “The fact that his father and I have chosen to do the work that we do, doesn’t give anybody the right to invade our privacy.”  You can read the entire interview with Cruz in the June issue of Vogue.

Penelope Cruz Achieves Her American Dream, Thanks to Johnny Depp

Jason LaVeris/FlimMagic(LONDON) -- Penelope Cruz has come a long way since she arrived in the U.S.  The actress, who hails from Spain, told Britain's Daily Mirror, "When I first came to America I only knew two phrases in English.  One was, 'How are you?' and the other was, 'I want to work with Johnny Depp.'" Proving America is the land of opportunity, Cruz expanded her vocabulary and went on to work with Depp in Blow, as well as the upcoming Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides.

There were some issues working with Depp, though, says Cruz.  The 37-year-old Oscar winner reveals, "The only problem is he has a very peculiar sense of humor -- and even though I know all his tricks, he can still crack me up.  I can't stop laughing when we are working so we had a few problems on the set."
