Katherine Jenkins has given birth to a baby girl.

The 35-year-old opera singer and her handsome husband Andrew Levitas have welcomed their first child into the world and have named the little one Aaliyah Reign.

Taking to her Twitter account today (30.09.15), she uploaded a snap of the tiny tot's hands and feet along with the caption: ''Introducing our daughter Aaliyah Reign Levitas, who came loudly into the world weighing almost 7lbs and surrounded by love.''

She added: ''We are absolutely besotted with her & grateful for the beautiful blessing of this happy, healthy, little miracle. Cwtches all round (sic).''

The blonde beauty announced she was expecting a little girl earlier this year by posting a snap of a pair of tiny pink shoes balanced on one of her wedding pictures on Instagram.

She later added in a statement: ''We are overjoyed to be expecting our first child in the autumn.

''Starting a family and moving into this exciting phase of our lives is a blessing for which we are incredibly grateful. We eagerly await the arrival of our little girl!''

Katherine and Andrew married last September and she admitted shortly afterwards she ''couldn't wait'' to start a family with the American director.

She said: ''I can't wait to have kids. I can't wait for us to become a family if and when - God willing - that happens.''
