It was a slip of the tongue, but a friend of Penélope Cruz and Javier Bardem may have announced their newborn’s name to the world.
The couple have remained mum about their new son’s name since Cruz gave birth in Los Angeles on Jan. 22. However, Spanish film director Santiago Segura referred to the baby as “Leo” when chastising a group of reporters, according to Spanish media reports.
“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,’ ” Segura reportedly told reporters when discussing the press-shy couple.
