Penelope Cruz and Kate Middleton Deliver Babies on the Same Day!

While the world was busy fretting over the birth of Prince George Alexander Louis to Kate Middleton and Prince William in Britain, Oscar winning duo Penelope Cruz and Javier Bardem welcomed a child of their own July 22 in Madrid, Spain.  39-year old Cruz gave birth to a daughter, the couple’s second child after the 2011 birth of son Leonardo Encinas, at Ruber International Hospital after being admitted on Monday.

While it’s no doubt that Cruz and Bardem’s child will receive attention merely because of who her parents are, Cruz voiced her desire to keep her kids out of the limelight by saying “I want my son and my kids – if I have more – to grow up in a way that is as anonymous as possible.”  This may be easier said than done, but the couple are fiercely private and seem to shun the spotlight when not working on film projects.

Cruz surely wants to avoid being under the kind of microscope she faced during her three year relationship with Tom Cruise from 2001 to 2004.  Bardem grew up in a family of actors and filmmakers and took up the craft after trying his hand at being a painter in his youth so he’s already aware of the pitfalls of fame.  The couple, who last worked together in Woody Allen‘s ‘Vicky Christina Barcelona‘, will be appearing together again in the hotly anticipated Ridley Scott directed and Cormac McCarthy scripted ‘The Counselor‘ alongside such talent as Brad Pitt, Michael Fassbender, and Cameron Diaz.

The Counselor‘ comes out November 15, 2013 and is already building Oscar buzz, perhaps the couple can add a couple of the golden statutes to their growing family.
