Actress Salma Hayek has called off her engagement to French businessman Francois-Henri Pinault, the father of her daughter.

In a statement, Hayek's spokesperson, Cari Ross, said: "We are sad to announce the engagement of Salma Hayek and Francois-Henri Pinault has been cancelled. There will be no further comment."

Forty-one-year-old Hayek and 46-year-old Pinault became the parents of a baby girl in September.

They had announced their engagement several months earlier.
