Penelope Cruz And Javier Bardem Officially Name Baby Girl

Celebrity couple Penelope Cruz (Pirates Of The Caribbean: On Stranger Tides) and Javier Bardem (Skyfall) welcomed a baby girl last month and have officially given her a name.

According to reports, Spanish magazine Vanitas is saying that the new dad went to Madrid’s central registrar office on Tuesday morning, where he registered the couple’s baby.

Cruz and Bardem named the little girl, Luna, which is literally translated to English as Moon.

This is the second child from these A-listers, they have a son, Leonardo, who is nicknamed Leo, born in Los Angeles in 2011.

Cruz gave birth to her second child on July 22 at the Ruber International hospital in Madrid.

Penelope Cruz and her husband are known for being excessively private about their lives and do not seem to enjoy the attention.

The new member of the family’s full name will be Luna Encinas Cruz, in keeping with Spanish tradition of using both her father and mother’s last names.

Luna’s birth went mostly undetected and ignored by the press due to all the anticipation of the royal birth, which took place on the same date.

A representative of the couple confirmed the news to the Spanish magazine Hola!

Cruz made her wishes known as far as how she planned to bring her kids up. She told Vogue in an interview that she wanted them to be raised as far away from the spotlight as possible.

The new mom made it clear that just because her and Bardem choose to have a profession which is very much in the public eye, it doesn’t mean than anyone has the right to invade their privacy.

Bardem and Cruz were seen the weekend prior to Luna’s birth attending a Music festival in Madrid.
