01/26/2011 by Carollyn Nguyen

Actress Penelope Cruz and her husband Javier Bardem reportedly welcomed their first child at a Los Angeles hospital, according to a Spanish newspaper.

The news was first reported by Spanish newspaper El Pais, according to US Weekly Magazine. The Spanish newspaper did not mention the baby's name or gender.

There are conflicting details about the date of the birth. Us Weekly and other media outlets cite El Pais as saying that the couple had the baby on Tuesday. Other media outlets cite Spanish magazine Hola!, saying that the baby was born last Saturday.

News of the birth comes as Bardem receives an Oscar nomination for his role in "Biutiful." Cruz and Bardem married in the Bahamas in early July after dating since at least 2007. The two Oscar-winning actors first met while filming the Spanish movie "Jamon, Jamon" in 1992.

Cruz will appear in "Pirates of the Caribbean 4: On Stranger Tides," which will be released on May 20, 2011 and in 3D. Cruz plays the love interest of Johnny Depp's Captain Jack Sparrow and the daughter of the pirate Blackbeard, who is portrayed by Ian McShane of Deadwood fame.
