Spanish Hollywood actress and model Paz Vega has given birth to her third child, a son, a Madrid hospital announced Monday.

The boy was born Friday by caesarean section and weighed 2.750 kilograms (6.05 pounds), the Ruber International Hospital said.

"The mother and the newborn are in perfect health," it said in a statement. It did not indicate if the boy had been named.

This is the third child for Vega, 34, and her Venezuelan husband, Orson Salazar. The couple have a three-year-old son, Orson, and a daughter, Ava, born on July 17, 2009.

With her successful career in Spanish television and films, including Pedro Almodovar's "Hable con Ella" (Talk to Her), Vega has starred in a number of Hollywood roles in recent years.

She appeared with Adam Sandler in "Spanglish" in 2004, with Scarlett Johansson in "The Spirit" in 2008 and opposite Colin Farrell in "Triage" last year.
