A young Netflix star and famous people with the last names Johnson, Jagger, Versace and Allen were born on the same day.

It's a baby girl, and she was born on May 2.

With Kate Middleton giving birth in London Saturday to her and Prince William's second baby, news coverage around the world covered the latest addition to the royal family.

Much attention in the coming days will focus on the baby's name, which is expected to be announced only after Queen Elizabeth II meets the baby.

Harry Potter fans on Saturday highlighted the fact that the fictional Battle of Hogwarts took place on May 2 as described by author J.K. Rowling in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. Rowling herself had tweeted on Friday: "Loads of confused people are asking what's special about tomorrow. It's the 17th anniversary of the Battle of Hogwarts. Just had a thought."

Beyond her birthday falling on the same day as that fictional battle between magicians, the newborn princess also shares her birthday with various celebrities. Here is a look at some of them.

Dwayne Johnson
The Hollywood star, who showed up at WWE's WrestleMania again this year‎ to loud "Rocky!" chants, turned 43 on Saturday. Wrestling fans will wonder: Does he smell what the new princess is cooking?

David Beckham
Will the royal baby be able to bend it like one of England's most famous soccer stars? Beckham celebrated his 40th birthday on Saturday by joining Instagram, while the royal baby dominated social media activity.

Lily Allen
The 30-year-old singer, songwriter and actress also shares her birthday with the royal baby. Allen fans know that a couple of her song titles sound like they could refer to a birth. "Littlest Things‎" or "Smile," anyone?

Donatella Versace
The fashion guru turned 60 on Saturday. Industry insiders will be keen to see if the princess will become a fashion icon just like her mother, Kate.

Bianca Jagger
It will take some time for the world to find out if the royal baby has moves like the other famous Jagger. Did Bianca Jagger ‎toast the addition to the royal family when she celebrated her 70th birthday on Saturday?

Ellie Kemper
Unlike Kemper, 35, the royal baby may never work at The Office or visit 21 Jump Street. But she may well be part of a group of Bridesmaids one day. Will she be a fan of Kemper's Netflix show, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt?
