Los Angeles (Reuters): Matt Damon's wife has given birth to a baby girl named Isabella, the couple's first child together, a spokeswoman for the actor of movies such as The Bourne Supremacy said. The girl was born at a hospital in Miami on Sunday night, and mother and child are healthy and doing fine, said spokeswoman Jennifer Allen yesterday. She gave no further details. Damon, 35, and wife Luciana, 30, married in December in New York City. She has a 7 year-old daughter from a previous marriage.
The actor rose to stardom in 1997 low-budget movie Good Will Hunting, which he co-wrote and starred in with his friend Ben Affleck. The movie earned them an Oscar for original screenplay. Early in his career, Damon enjoyed a reputation as a solid actor in films like The Talented Mr. Ripley in 1999. He hit big at box offices with 2002 spy thriller The Bourne Identity and its 2004 follow-up The Bourne Supremacy. Other recent movie successes include Ocean's Eleven and Ocean's Twelve.
