Kimberly Stewart, Benicio Del Toro welcome baby girl

Actor Benicio Del Toro and Kimberly Stewart, the second-eldest of rocker Rod Stewart's eight children, have one significant thing in common: an 8-pound, 9-ounce baby girl.

Stewart, 32, gave birth to the baby girl on Sunday in Los Angeles. The singer-model and the Academy Award-winning actor, 44, are not a couple, Del Toro's rep said in April when the pregnancy was  announced. However, the baby daddy is "very supportive."

And their lack of a relationship isn't hindering grandpa Rod Stewart's excitement.

"My joy is indescribable," he told People, calling the birth one of the happiest days of his life. Rod and third wife Penny Lancaster, Kimberly's mother Alana, new uncle (and Kim's brother) Sean Stewart and Del Toro were among the crowd who joined her at the hospital to welcome the newest member of the family.

Del Toro and Stewart's daughter will have a couple of younger uncles to grow up with too: In February, Rod, 66, and Penny had a baby named Aiden, who joined their other son, 5-year-old Alastair.
