Penelope Cruz Gives Birth On The Same Day As Kate Middleton

Actress Penelope Cruz welcomed her second child - a baby girl at the Ruber Internacional Hospital in Madrid - on the same day the Duchess of Cambridge welcomed the royal baby.

Penelope and her Skyfall star husband, Javier Bardem, already have a two-year-old son called Leo, but the name of their newborn has yet to be announced.

With the ENTIRE world was wrapped up in royal baby mayhem, Penelope's new arrival kinda slipped under the radar. However, the actress may be pretty pleased about that.

The couple are notoriously private, with Penelope recently stating, "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."
