The blogosphere has been buzzing lately with rumors that Spanish actress and recent Academy Award winner Penélope Cruz is pregnant!

We're going to take this with a grain of salt, but is reporting that a source has exclusively confirmed the baby news, telling the website, "Penelope is about four months pregnant. She’s really healthy now and will be a great mother."

The father is said to be longtime lover Javier Bardem, essentially assuring that the baby will be Oscar-worthy by the time it is old enough to talk. Bardem and Cruz have been together for almost two years, although they've known each other since they starred in Jamón, Jamón together back in 1992. The notoriously paparazzi-averse couple has recently been photographed sharing a lot of cuddly PDA—perhaps they've been reveling in the good news?

Who knows! But even if the gorgeous española is pregnant, it is clear from recent interviews she's given that she has no need for marriage. She recently told U.K.'s Psychologies magazine, "I don’t know if I believe in marriage. I believe in family, love and children." Well, she did mention children ... if it is true, then congrats, Pené!
