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."
