Elisabetta Canalis has given birth to a baby girl.

The 36-year-old beauty - who previously dated George Clooney for two years until 2011 - welcomed her first child into the world with her husband Brian Perri yesterday (29.09.15) in Los Angeles and has named her Skyler Eva.

The Italian actress took to her Instagram account to announced the news as she shared a photograph of her beau planting a tender kiss on their new bundle of joy.

She accompanied the sweet snap with the caption: ''My life is full of love because of you. La mia vita e' piena di amore grazie a voi. Benvenuta al mondo Skyler Eva ! Welcome into the world our lil Skyler Eva 29 - 9 - 2015 (sic).''

Elisabetta announced via a video clip earlier this year she and her husband were expecting their first child after she tragically suffered a miscarriage in June 2014.

Donning a false pregnancy stomach, she said: ''I am so happy to share this moment with all of you. Last year you were so cute and you gave me a lot of love. Thanks.

''Now I don't know how to say it. I'm expecting a baby girl! I hope that everything will be fine. Thanks for everything. Thanks for being always so close.''

After suffering her miscarriage last year, Elisabetta insisted she still had ''hope'' of having a family one day in the future.

Elisabetta - who was previously engaged to soccer player Christian Vieri and dated director Gabriele Muccino and 'Jackass' star Steve-O - and Brian live in Los Angeles and got married in Alghero, Italy in September 2014.
