Francois-Henri Pinault, Salma Hayek Welcome Baby Girl!

by at . Comments

Salma Hayek and her businessman fiancé, Francois Henri Pinault, are the proud parents of a baby girl, Valentina Paloma Pinault.

"Mother and daughter are doing well," Salma Hayek's publicist, Cari Ross, said in a statement.

Mr. Salma Hayek

No further details are available at this time.

A source said that the 41-year-old Mexican-born actress entered the hospital on Thursday and that Francois-Henri Pinault was present.

The newborn daughter is the first child for Salma Hayek. Pinault, 45, has two children from a previous marriage which ended in divorce in 2004.

The actress' pregnancy was first revealed in March.

At the same time, Hayek and Pinault announced they were engaged to be married. No word on whether the two have set a wedding date.

The pair had kept a relatively low profile since their relationship began â€" though Hayek joined Francois Henri Pinault, the CEO of luxury goods firm PPR, for the occasional public event, including at the inauguration of the Pinault Foundation's Modern Art collection in Venice.

Besides carrying her child, Salma Hayek has had her hands full on Ugly Betty, both as a guest star and as the executive producer of the show.

Speaking of Hayek, actor Michal Urie, who plays an assistant on the series, said: "She knows how to take care - like we have a ton of producers, and she's really caring. She's like the matriarch of the producers. She's already motherly."

Congratulations! Here's hoping that Salma's maternal instincts are a tad better than what Britney Spears has displayed over the past two years.
