Gal Gadot announced on Instagram Tuesday that she gave birth to a baby girl.

The post gained more than 1 million likes in less than an hour.

This is Gadot’s third child with husband Yaron “Jaron” Varsano, an Israeli real estate developer turned filmmaker. Their other daughters are Alma, 9, and Maya, 4.

Back in 2015 she gave the following advice for being a mother to a daughter:

Introduce your children to new people and places

“We always travel together. My daughter is always with me. My husband goes back and forth, but we spend most of the time together. And I look at that as something unique. Alma is bilingual; she understands and speaks Hebrew and English. She’s very outgoing. Going through all of these experiences and meeting new people and going to different countries and cultures, you can only gain from it. “

Show her that she can do what she wants to do.

“Show her that Mommy’s doing what Mommy loves to do. And therefore, she can do what she loves to do and have a family at the same time. As long as you have your priorities figured out in a healthy way.”

Spend time with her

“The good thing about being an actress is that it’s very children-friendly. I can work for three months and then I can have six months off. And then I can work for six months and have six months off. It’s up to me.”

Be an example of a strong woman

“… I told them that I wanted to be able to show the stronger side of women. I didn’t want to do the obvious role that you see in Hollywood most of the time, which is the heartbroken girl who’s waiting to be rescued by the guy, blah, blah, blah. I wanted to do something different.”

Think about her future

“When I choose a role, I always think about whether my daughter can get something out of it when she watches the movie later after she’s grown up.”
