Matt Damon & Wife Luciana Welcome Daughter Stella

Actor Matt Damon and his wife Luciana Barroso welcomed the arrival of their third — and let the Oscar winner tell it — final daughter, Stella Zavala, in the Big Apple last Wednesday.

“Mom and baby are both healthy,” spokesfolks for the ecstatic family told PEOPLE Magazine Saturday. “The whole family is thrilled.”

The Bourne Identity star, 40, and Luciana, 35, wed in 2005 and have two other daughters together — Isabella, 4, and Gia, 2. Luciana also has a daughter from a previous marriage, Alexa, 11. Just last week, Damon told PARADE Magazine that he and Luciana planned to close up shop on childbearing after Stella’s arrival.

“My wife is about to have our fourth kid and we’ve drawn a line in the sand.”

Earlier this year, Matt credited fatherhood with helping him avoid some of Hollywood’s pitfalls.

“It’s pretty easy to kind of lose your way. I think working consistently with great people is really helpful. Also having kids is really helpful. They kind of disabuse you of the notion of your greatness pretty quickly,” he said in April. “There’s a routine that you get into with kids that precludes you from going back to your single days. I’m probably more boring than I used to be. I go to bed earlier and I get up earlier.”
