The Oscar-winning actress is celebrating her new arrival with husband Javier Bardem.

Hollywood power couple Penelope Cruz and Javier Bardem have welcomed their second baby into the world - on the day as the Duchess of Cambridge. The thespian couple are celebrating the arrival of their very own royal baby at Ruber Internacional hospital in Madrid on Monday evening.

Kate Middleton welcomed her little boy in St Mary's Hospital in London, while the gender of Tinseltown's newest baby has not yet been revealed. The pair kept the details of their first child, Leonardo, two, under wraps for as long as possible and the same applied to her second pregnancy.

"I want my son and my kids - if I have more - to grow up in a way that is as anonymous as possible," she said in a recent interview. "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.'

Penelope and Javier wed in 2010 after dating for three years.
