Russian opera star becomes a mother

Russian opera diva Anna Netrebko has given birth to a baby boy in Vienna, Austria. Doctors say the mother and her baby are doing well.

The famous soprano’s fiancé, bass-baritone Erwin Schrott, was present during the birth.

The baby boy has been named Tiago Aura Schrott.

36-year old Netrebko is to return to the stage of the Mariinsky Theater in St Petersburg in January.

Then she'll perform at the New York Metropolitan Opera house.
