Prince William and Kate Middleton weren't the only supercouple to welcome a child yesterday.

According to Spanish site Hola! (via People), Cruz gave birth to a baby girl in Madrid on July 22 -- the same day William and Kate became first-time parents to a little British prince. The Spanish actors, who co-star in the upcoming Ridley Scott/Cormac McCarthy crime thriller "The Counselor," already have a 2-year-old son, Leonardo.

Cruz confirmed her second pregnancy in February, with her rep telling Hola! that the actress was "tremendously happy and very excited."

"From the first second, you feel so much love," Cruz gushed about motherhood in the June 2011 issue of Vogue. "... Nature is very wise and gives you nine months to prepare, but in that moment, when you see that face, you are transformed forever."

Together since filming the Woody Allen film "Vicky Cristina Barcelona" in 2007, Cruz and Bardem wed in July 2010.
