Hot on the heels of news that his friend and costar Diego Luna became a father this week, Mexican actor Gael García Bernal has confirmed that he will be un papá también.
The 29-year-old actor, who counts Y Tu Mamá También, Babel and The Motorcycle Diaries among his international credits, confirmed Wednesday that he and his Argentine actress girlfriend are expecting their first child together.
"This statement is to say that, after so much speculation and comments, the actors Dolores Fonzi and Gael García Bernal are indeed expecting a baby at the start of next year," Bernal said in a statement released through Canana Films, the production company he started with Luna.
Bernal and the 30-year-old actress first met in 2001, when both costarred in the Argentine film Private Lives. They have not been steadily dating since then, however, as Bernal was previously attached to Natalie Portman.
As it is, there must be something in the water over at Canana.
Just two days ago, the company confirmed that Luna and his wife, actress Camila Sodi, became first-time parents as well, welcoming an as-yet unnamed son.
