Vincent Cassel is a father for third time.

The French Black Swan actor, 52, and his wife, 22-year-old French model Tina Kunakey, are the proud parents of a new baby girl, he announced Friday.

Sharing the news on Instagram, Cassel posted a photo of a rainforest waterfall alongside the phrase, “Amazonie est née ❤️ (Amazonie is born).”

The child’s name is seemingly a tribute to Brazil, where the spouses reside part of the year.

In his short announcement video, the actor cradled and kissed his wife’s growing baby bump, while Kunakey glowed in her yellow bikini and oversized straw hat.

“Bonne année Feliz ano novo Happy new year #tellementdechance #danslavieriennestdû #lifeismagicneverforget #goooooooaaaaaaal,” he captioned the sweet clip, which translates to “Happy New Year” in French and Portuguese.

In an interview with Italian Vanity Fair last year, Cassel said that “Children are the most wonderful thing that exists,” admitting he would like to have more and adding, “It is through children, my daughters and beyond that, I have learned more things.”

“They help me understand myself,” he added.

Cassel also has two daughters — Léonie, 9 next month, and Deva, 14 — from his previous 14-year marriage to actress Monica Bellucci. The former couple split in 2013.
