Monica Bellucci gives birth
Monica Bellucci - who has five-year-old daughter Deva with husband Vincent Cassel - gave birth to the couple's second child, Leonie, on Friday (21.05.10).
Monica Bellucci has become a mother for the second time.
The 45-year-old actress - who has five-year-old daughter Deva with actor husband Vincent Cassel - reportedly gave birth to another girl, Leonie, in Rome, Italy, on Friday (21.05.10) evening.
According to People magazine, both mother and daughter are said to be doing "marvellously".
Monica - who married Vincent in 1999 - has previously spoken about how she is glad to be an older mother.
She said: "I wouldn't want to be 20 again for anything. I am much happier now than when I was younger. You have to discover who you are, who you are going to be, there are so many insecurities. Today, I know the things that I need, the things that I can live without.
"Deva arrived at a perfect moment for me. I have done so many things in my life, been to so many places, had some great times - but when she came I was ready to give her everything she needed. The most important thing with children is to give them time."
