Bienvenido, baby!

Penélope Cruz and Javier Bardem welcomed their second child on Monday, July 22, Hola reports.

Cruz, who is said to have delivered a daughter in Madrid, flew under the radar, giving birth the same day as Kate Middleton.

Details or official confirmation of the couple’s new addition — who joins big brother Leonardo, 2½ — have not been released.

Following months of speculation that Cruz, 39, and Bardem, 44, were expanding their family further, PEOPLE confirmed in February that a second baby was on the way.

And when the actress was unable to attend Spain’s Goya Awards weeks later, her rep issued a statement that simultaneously explained her absence and confirmed her second pregnancy. “[Penelope is] tremendously happy and very excited,” her rep said at the time.

Congrats to them on the birth of their daughter!!!! It’s such a blessing to have a child.

Now I wonder if People magazine week have dozens of stories about her birth, who announced it, and maybe a live feed of when they leave the hospital. Ya know, just to be fair and point out how equal all previous babies are.

Good for them, & Will & Kate, and congratulations to ALL the parents who were blessed with children yesterday…..and every and all days. 😀

I adore them as individuals in their own right and as a couple. I think its wonderful that their daughter shares her birthday with the new Royal baby.

They are a gorgeous couple! At least Leonardo ( big brother ), will have a sibling, and mom and dad will name her something beautiful and normal!

Lovely news but why do they have to bring will and kate into every single article? Cant this just be about Penelope and Javier’s happy news?

cbaker on

Congrat to the couple

Why does every baby born on the 22nd of July have to be lumped into the same boat as the royal baby?? I’m sure most new parents wished their baby was not born on that day. Enough!

Cairnlover on

She is so beautiful, I hope her daughter looks just like her!

Best wishes to them all.

monika pompeo on

yes, these people have class & old-world values . . . their daughter will have a traditional yet beautiful name and she will not be marred for life being referred to as some ridiculous object, piece of fruit, or direction.

Full moon indeed, born on the cusp of Cancer going into Leo, what a Day to be born!! Congrats!!

blessedwithboys on

Wouldn’t it be cool if she marries Kate’s son?

Dorie on

Aww, love those two and their movies!

Happy for them 🙂

And since Penelope is someone who cherishes her privacy a lot, I guess she is happy the baby was born the same day as Baby Cambridge, it takes the spotlight off of her 😉

Taina on

Congrats on the newest addition but having met both of them numerous times when I lived in Madrid, they are the rudest and most conceited people I have ever met!

Cindy Halpern on

Best wishes to Penelope Cruz on the birth of her second child.

olga on

It was reported long ago that June 22 was Penelope’s due date They got the month wrong, but the date correct! Hehehe It’s sheer coincidence that the royal baby was born the same day!
