Cruz said to be pregnant

PENELOPE Cruz is reportedly pregnant.

The actress and her actor husband Javier Bardem are thought to be expecting a sibling for their two-year-old son Leonardo, according to the New York Post.

The couple, who had been friends for years, started dating in 2007 and married in early July 2010.

Penelope, 43, has spoken out about how motherhood has transformed her life.

"From the first second, you feel so much love," she said about motherhood.

"It is a revolutionary experience. That's the best way I can describe it.

"It transforms you completely, in a second."

She is determined to keep her kids out of the public eye.

"I want my son and my kids - if I have more - to grow up as anonymous as possible.

"The fact that his father and I have chosen to do the work we do doesn't give anybody the right to invade our privacy."
