Javier Bardem is fiercely protective of his personal life.
But with Penelope Cruz far away as he picked up a Goya - Spain's equivalent of an Oscar - the actor couldn't resist sending her a special message.
The hunk dedicated the award to his beautiful partner and their newborn baby.
"(Thanks) to my wife and my son for awakening my heart and making me smile each day," he said, speaking from the podium.
Penelope is busy caring for their new baby after giving birth last month in Los Angeles.
It was at the Goyas last year that they chose to go public with their relationship.
And in May 2010 he was even more open, making a very romantic declaration of love before the film festival audience in Cannes.
