Javier Bardem's Sister: Expect Penelope Cruz to Get Pregnant


Expect newlyweds Javier Bardem and Penélope Cruz to have a little one soon.

Though Cruz's rep denies a Life & Style tabloid report that the actress, 36, is currently expecting, Bardem's sister Monica says a baby will likely be on the way.

"They have shown the world they are in love," she says on Hola!'s website, "and it would be only normal and natural to have children."

Monica, who runs La Bardemcilla restaurant in Madrid, missed their intimate wedding earlier this month in the Bahamas "because of work commitments," she says. "But my mother [actress Pilar Bardem] and my brother [actor Carlos Bardem] were there."

Monica phoned in her congrats.

And how is the married life so far?

Says Monica, "[They're] so obviously very much in love."
