Wonder Woman star Gal Gadot welcomes her second child

Wonder Woman star Gal Gadot has announced the birth of her second child.

The actress, 31, shared the happy news with her 3.9 million Instagram followers, sharing a black and white family photo and writing: ‘And then we were four… She is here, Maya. I feel so complete blessed and thankful for all the Wonders in my life #family #newborn #grateful’

Gal and husband Yaron Versano are already parents to daughter Alma, who was born in 2011.

Fans were quick to shower the couple with congratulations on the new arrival, with one writing: ‘Congratulations!!! Much love and many blessings to you, Maya and your family!’ and another adding : ‘She’s going to be your Wonder Girl … @gal_gadot congrats!!!!’

Gal first announced that she was expecting again back in November 2016, posting a picture of herself and Yaron holding her growing bump to her social media accounts.

‘So excited to share this wonder with you…,’ she said. ‘Mommy for the second time.’

Gal’s first Wonder Woman movie will hit theatres in June of this year, and she’s said in the past that she loves that the character provides a strong role model for young girls, including her own children.

‘I just had a conversation with my daughter, Alma, and she was saying something about the prince she saw in Sleeping Beauty and she was saying he’s brave and he’s strong. And I said what about the princess and she said, she’s weak. And I said, what do you think of that?’ she told Entertainment Weekly in 2016.

‘She’s 4, my daughter. And she said, she shouldn’t be weak. And I said why do you think she’s weak, and she said, she’s sleeping the entire movie and the prince comes and kisses her and saves her. She didn’t do anything.’

‘I feel that I’ve got the opportunity to set a great role model for girls to look up to a strong, active, compassionate, loving, positive woman and I think it’s so important. It’s about time that somebody will do that and I’m very privileged and honored to be the one.’
