It’s a girl!
It may have been Kate Middleton and Prince William’s royal baby boy who hogged the spotlight on Monday, July 22, but Penelope Cruz and her husband, Javier Bardem, also welcomed a new child into the world!
Penelope gave birth to her and Javier's second child together — and first daughter — yesterday in Madrid. The couple’s son, Leo, 2, was born in January 2011.

Talking about the experience of her first pregnancy to Vogue, the 39-year-old actress said, “Nature is very wise and gives you nine months to prepare, but in that moment—when you see that face, you are transformed forever.”
“Even if you have heard from all your friends and family, ‘this is what’s going to happen,’ until it happens to you, it’s hard to understand in your soul,” she explained. “[It] changed the way I see the world. Even if you were aware of children and felt compassion, when you have your own, it multiplies.”
