Penelope Cruz has given birth to her second child with husband Javier Bardem - just hours after Kate Middleton and Prince William's son arrived in the world!

The actress and her film star husband welcomed their first daughter on Monday evening (22 July), after Penelope was admitted to Ruber Internacional hospital in Madrid, Spain.

Details of their little girl's name, weight or time of birth are currently unknown, although it is thought she was born within a few hours of Kate Middleton having the royal baby yesterday.

The Spanish A-lister and Javier - who married in the Bahamas in 2010 - already have a two-year-old son together, Leonardo Encinas, so no doubt they are overjoyed to now have a daughter join their family too.

Penelope was only just seen over the weekend attending a concert in Madrid with her hubby, despite being heavily pregnant.

She and Javier are known to be a private couple and have previously been honest about the fact that they want their children to grow up outside of the spotlight.

Congratulations to the new parents!
