'Yeah, Leo, I think so,' Segura reveals the baby's name after hounded by reporters who run for the information about Bardem and Cruz's newborn son.
Spanish filmmaker Santiago Segura has let it slip that Javier Bardem and Penelope Cruz plan to name their newborn son Leo. The director blurted out the details during a recent press conference, even though Oscar winners Bardem and Cruz have yet to release the kid's name to the press.
Segura made the big reveal as he was scolding reporters for hounding him about information on the new parents and their recent arrival. He said, "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'."
When pressed further about the baby's name, the director played down his comments, replying, "Yeah, Leo, I think so. That's what I think I heard. But they haven't said anything."
