The baby girl arrived last night, and shares its birthday with the Royal baby.

Although she may not be third in line to the British throne, Penelope and Javier’s new daughter will certainly be Hollywood Royalty.

‘The fact that his [Leonardo’s] father and I have chosen to do the work we do doesn’t give anybody the right to invade our privacy'

39-year-old Penelope who was spotted showing off her gigantic baby bump at a concert recently, and was admitted to Ruber Internacional Hospital in Madrid on Monday evening.

The actor couple are notoriously private, and married in July 2010 in an intimate ceremony in the Bahamas after three years of dating. They went on to have their first child, 2-year-old Leonardo, in 2011.

Although Leo was born in Los Angeles, the couple chose to have their second child in Spain, Penelope and 44-year-old Javier’s home country.

It is likely that they will try to keep their new daughter out of the public eye, with Penelope revealing in a recent interview that she wants her kids to grow up ‘in a way that is as anonymous as possible’.

Speaking about the importance she places on privacy, the actress said:

‘The fact that his [Leonardo’s] father and I have chosen to do the work we do doesn’t give anybody the right to invade our privacy'.

Penelope’s sister Monica gave birth to her first child in May this year, giving her new arrival an immediate playmate.
