French director Luc Besson has become a dad for the fifth time - and the new arrival followed precedent by being another daughter.

The celebrated movie-maker, 46, already has four girls - TALIA, 4; and SATINE, 2; by producer wife VIRGINIE SILLA and one each by ex-spouses Anne Parillaud and MAIWENN LE BESCO.

Besson is best known for directing action flick LEON, which charted star Jean Reno's growing paternal feelings for an orphaned 12-year-old girl played by Natalie Portman.
