Welcome Gia Zavala
  • Matt and Lucy have welcomed a new daughter named Gia Zavala. The first report is at People:

    Matt Damon and His Wife Welcome a Girl

    It's another girl for Matt Damon and his wife, Luciana, his rep tells PEOPLE.

    "Matt and Lucy Damon had a baby girl named Gia Zavala on Wednesday, Aug. 20th. Everyone's doing great," Damon's rep, Jennifer Allen, tells PEOPLE. "She is a healthy baby girl."

    The newest addition is the third little girl in the Damon household, joining big sisters Isabella, 2, and Alexia, 10.

    Damon recently joked about living with so many females, telling USA Today from his home in Miami, "I'm so outnumbered down here, it's crazy."

    Damon, 37, and Luciana, 32, met in Miami Beach in 2003 while he was filming the comedy Stuck on You. They married in December 2005 at City Hall in Manhattan.

    Damon is a "phenomenal" father, his close pal George Clooney told PEOPLE in 2007. "He absolutely adores those kids. He's doing it really well."

    Damon, PEOPLE's reigning Sexiest Man Alive, is currently preparing for re-shoots on his thriller Green Zone. But after that, the actor will enjoy some down time with his growing brood.

    [I'm] taking the rest of the year off," he told USA Today. "I'm just hanging out with my family."

  • There is little new information in other reports, including the Reuters story:

    Actor Matt Damon and his wife welcomed their second daughter into the world on Wednesday, and all were "doing great," his spokeswoman said.

    “She is a healthy, beautiful baby girl," spokeswoman Jennifer Allen told Reuters in an e-mail.

    The couple named their daughter Gia Zavala Damon, but no other details were released.

  • A few more details from the Miami Herald:

    Matt Damon's wife, Luciana, gave birth to a "healthy, beautiful baby girl" named Gia Zavala Wednesday afternoon, Damon's spokeswoman Jennifer Allen confirmed to The Miami Herald. The weight is unknown.

    Luciana was admitted to Memorial Regional Hospital Tuesday afternoon. During the long labor, the facility was buzzing, said Kimberley LaFauci, who was visiting a patient in a different wing.

  • The Miami Herald had posted an earlier report of a sighting of Matt at the hospital.
