This past week was Pearl Jam Week on “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon,” with the band playing both Thursday and Friday nights shows. Javier Bardem was a fellow guest last night, and apparently he and Pearl Jam’s Eddie Vedder have a longtime bromance. Who knew?!

Too-gorgeous-for-their-own-good couple Penelope Cruz and Javier Bardem are now the parents of a baby boy. According to reports—since, naturally, their reps have not confirmed the news—their son was born in Los Angeles just hours after Javier discovered that he had been nominated for an Oscar for his role in “Biutiful.” After the jump, some presents we would like to send their new babe.

Javier Bardem is super psyched about the Lakers doing something awesome, while his baby mama, Penelope Cruz, looks to be both embarrassed by his enthusiastic display and pissed to be stuck at a basketball game on Christmas Day. Love this photo all around. Keep reading »
