  • Matt Damon welcomes daughter no. 2

    Matt Damon and his wife, Luciana, are celebrating the birth of their second daughter together.

    ‘Matt and Lucy Damon had a baby girl named Gia Zavala on Wednesday, 20 August. Everyone’s doing great,’ Damon’s rep, Jennifer Allen, tells People. ‘She is a healthy baby girl.’

    Little Gia is the third addition to the household, and will join Isabella, two, and ten-year-old Alexia – Luciana’s child from her previous marriage.

    Damon and Luciana met in 2003 while he was filming the comedy Stuck on You. The pair married in New York City Hall on 9 December 2005.

    Described as a ‘phenomenal father’ by close pal George Clooney, Damon recently announced on USA Today that he will soon be taking a break to spend time with his family. He’s currently preparing for re-shoots on his thriller Green Zone, then he’s ‘taking the rest of the year off. I’m just hanging out with my family’.

    The Bourne Ultimatum actor also joked about living with so many females, telling the show from his home in Miami: ‘I’m so outnumbered down here, it’s crazy.’
