Salma Hayek is very maternal.

The Frida actress gave birth to her daughter Valentina Paloma last September and has impressed her friend, American fashion stylist Phillip Bloch, with her parenting skills.

Phillip told America’s OK! magazine: “She’s nurturing and maternal.”

The stylist also revealed Salma was keen to “nest” with her daughter following the birth instead of rushing back to work.

Salma and Valentina Paloma’s father, French billionaire Francois-Henri Pinault, announced they had called off their engagement last month, but Phillip insists the actress is dealing well with the split.

He said: “Salma has survived many romances. She finds happiness in the ones she loves. She’s passionido!”

Salma and Francois-Henri – who had an unconventional relationship which saw Salma living in Los Angeles while Francois-Henri resided in Paris – were reportedly set to marry later this year.

However, the actress has previously admitted she does not see the point in getting married.

She said: “I don’t have a need for marriage. You want to grow old with someone, you want to have a partner and to have children – we have all those things. Some people need the commitment. Maybe we’ll just have the party!”
