An insider revealed to the magazine that Javier's mother, Pilar was the "driving force behind the proposal," and she reportedly told her son, "What's the matter with you? She's perfect! You love her, she loves you. Get married!"

Bardem and Cruz first met on the set of Jamon Jamon in 1992, but didn't start dating until the summer of 2007 when they worked on the Woody Allen film Vicky Cristina Barcelona.
