Salma Hayek has given birth to a girl.
The Ugly Betty producer and her businessman fiance Francois Henri Pinault welcomed daughter Valentina Paloma Pinault into the world on Friday (21.09.07).
Salma’s publicist Cari Ross said: “Mother and daughter are doing well.”
No other information about the birth has been released.
This is Salma’s first child, while Pinault has two children from a previous marriage that ended in 2004.
Salma, 41, was secretly dating the wealthy Frenchman – who is the chief executive of PPR, the company that owns Gucci and Yves Saint Laurent and a series of other French retail chains – before she announced her engagement and confirmed she was expecting his baby in March.
Earlier this year, Salma revealed she had no fears about becoming a mother and insisted she was glad she hadn’t rushed into starting a family.
The stunning brunette said: “Motherhood is not for everyone. It is for me, but there’s no reason women should feel rushed to have a child.”
