Penelope Cruz and Javier Bardem are engaged, a source tells Usmagazine.com.
"They tried to keep it very private and quiet," the source continues of the couple, who began dating in 2007. (They first met while filming flick Jamon, Jamon in 1992.)
A rep for Cruz, 35, had no comment.
A pal told the New York Daily News, which first reported the story, that Cruz wanted to wed Bardem, 40, to appease Cruz's Catholic parents — given the persistent rumors that she's pregnant, which she's denied.
Cruz once said she wasn't sure she wanted to be a wife.
"I don't know if I believe in marriage," she told Psychology Today in August. "I believe in family, love and children."
She continued: "When I [have children], I want to do it really well. I want it to be my best project in life."
