Penelope Cruz is currently in New York promoting Broken Embraces. She was spotted wearing an engagement ring, and according to several reports, she and boyfriend, Javier Bardem, are engaged and expecting a baby.
According to CNN.com, Bardem’s rep said, “I really don’t know, but would not be able to say anything even if I did.”
The couple have kept a low profile during their two-year romance, choosing not to walk red carpets together, evading the paparazzi, and not talking about one another in the press. “I don’t talk about that,” Penelope told reporters about Bardem in July 2007. “He’s a friend and the best actor in the world.”
Hmm. A friend, Penelope? I don’t know what’s worse, celebs that gush about each other to the press and then break up two months later, or those that refuse to admit they are together…
