At last, Javier Bardem has piped up about Penelope Cruz's pregnancy.

The actor finally spoke about his wife's baby-to-be during a Sunday press conference in Rome for Eat Pray Love.

"Yes, it's true," Bardem, 41, told reporters, according to Access Hollywood. "I am very happy."

After Cruz was snapped sporting a baby bump, a rep for the Spanish stars confirmed Cruz's long-rumored pregnancy last week -- Cruz is 4 and 1/2 months along.  But neither Cruz, 36, nor Bardem have spoken publicly about the good news.

Bardem wouldn't reveal whether their baby-to-be will be a boy or girl. And what about fatherly words of wisdom? "It is a little too soon for me to be giving advice," he quipped. "I don't know yet, But I will find out soon."

Romantically linked since 2007, the Oscar-winning couple quietly wed in July.
