MADRID (Reuters) - Spanish film stars Penelope Cruz and Javier Bardem are expecting their first child after marrying this summer in the Bahamas.

After months of speculation, Cruz's public relations agency Kuranda confirmed on Tuesday that the 36-year-old Oscar-winning actress was four and a half months pregnant.

The couple's relationship began in 2007 and they are amongst a select group of Hollywood couples who have both won Oscars.

Cruz is currently filming the fourth edition of the "Pirates of the Caribbean" franchise alongside Johnny Depp.
