Penelope Cruz and Javier Bardem have finally chosen a name for their son – Leo – who they welcomed on January 22.
A friend of the couple, Spanish film director Santiago Segura, commented on the birth of their son to a group of pesty reporters.
“I know what you want and you don’t understand why they don’t come running to show off the baby and say, ‘Look, here’s Leo.’ ”
Reporters were unsure if that was the name of the baby, so they questioned the director if the baby’s name was actually Leo. He replied,
“Yeah, Leo. I think so. That’s what I think I heard. But they haven’t said anything.”
But that little slip up from a dear friend I don’t think will get Javier down. The actor appeared on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno and when asked how Penelope and the baby are doing, he said,
“Everything is going perfectly.”
So happy for them!
