And another one! Penelope Cruz reportedly gave birth to her second child with Javier Bardem yesterday. While all eyes were on the birth of Kate Middleton and Prince William's baby - the child set to be the third in line to the throne - Penelope was also welcoming a new addition into the world...
A representative has confirmed that the actress gave birth to a daughter - her second child, but it is not yet known the name of the baby. This follows suit with the couples notoriously private lives. Cruz recently even went so far as to say: "I want my son and my kids - if I have more - to grow up in a way that is as anonymous as possible. The fact that his father and I have chosen to do the work we do doesn't give anybody the right to invade our privacy."
Penelope Cruz's laidback maternity style
Following the birth of her first child with the actor, Penelope told Vogue: “It transforms you completely, in a second. Nature is very wise and gives you nine months to prepare, but in that moment, when you see that face, you are transformed forever.”
Monica Cruz - Penelope's sister - with whom the actress has designed a range of bags for Spanish retailer Loewe, also recently gave birth to her first child. Monica made headlines with her pregnancy back in February when she revealed that she had turned to an anonymous donor. "I have decided to tell all. To become pregnant, I turned to artificial insemination," she revealed. "I want to tell also so I can have the opportunity to show my thanks to all those anonymous men that give may women like me, the dream of their lives."
The Vicky Cristina Barcelona actress was last spotted at a concert in Madrid this past Saturday. Congratulations to the happy couple!
