Supermodel Claudia Schiffer and her husband, British film director Matthew Vaughn, have announced the birth of their third child.

The baby girl - who was born at London's Portland Hospital on Friday - is the couple's second daughter.

The German model and Vaughn already have a son Caspar, seven, and a daughter Clementine, five.

A statement from the couple did not reveal their daughter's name but said "both mother and baby were doing well".

It said: "Claudia Schiffer and Matthew Vaughn are proud to announce the birth of their baby daughter who was born on Friday May 14 in the early afternoon."

Schiffer and Vaughn first met at a dinner party in Los Angeles.

The supermodel had been in a relationship with the director of action film Kick-Ass and producer of Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels for 16 months when they tied the knot near their family home in Suffolk on 25 May 2002.

Forbes magazine once put her net worth at about $55m (£38m).
