According to Spanish newspaper El Pais, the infant was born at Cedars Sinai Hospital in L.A.; Spanish magazine Hola broke news of the baby's gender.  Hola also reports that members of the couple's family flew in from Spain for the birth: Cruz's mother, brother and sister, plus Bardem's mother.

Cruz, 36, first debuted her baby bump while shooting Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides in Puerto Rico last September -- just two months after she secretly tied the knot with Bardem, her Vicky Cristina Barcelona costar.

"He's a friend and the best actor in the world," Cruz has said of Bardem, 41.
