Actor Penelope Cruz has a new younger sister as her stepmother gave birth to a baby girl.The baby was born to the 37-year-old Spanish star's father, Eduardo, and his second wife, Carmen Moreno, who is the same age as the Hollywood beauty, reported Hello! magazine.

The proud parents have named the baby girl Salma, which also happens to be the name of Penelope's best friend, Salma Hayek.Despite the coincidence, the name was chosen simply as a favourite and wasn't after the Mexican actress.

Penelope has two other siblings - brother Eduardo Jr, who is Eva Longoria's boyfriend, and brunette Monica, who is a television actress in the family's native Spain.

Penelope and husband Javier Bardem welcomed their own child Leo in January 2011, making the little boy a year older than his aunt Salma.
