Penelope gives birth on the same day as Kate Middleton

Penelope Cruz is celebrating after welcoming her second child with husband Javier Bardem.

The actress, 39, gave birth to a little girl yesterday – on the same date that Kate Middleton and Prince William became parents to a baby boy.

The happy news comes after Penelope was snapped looking more than ready to pop with a huge bump at a concert in Madrid, Spain on Saturday night.

Javier, 44, and Penelope – who married in 2010 – haven’t yet revealed the name of their daughter and are notoriously private about their personal lives.

They kept the details of their son Leonardo secret for as long as possible after he was born in January 2011.

‘I want my son and my kids – if I have more – to grow up in a way that is as anonymous as possible,’ Penelope told Vogue in 2011.

‘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.’
