Opera Singer Anna Netrebko and Erwin Schrott Welcome a Son

09/05/2008 at 07:30 PM ET

Opera singer Anna Netrebko, 36, and her fiancé, musician Erwin Schrott, became parents for the first time today, Friday September 5th in Vienna, Austria. The baby boy — whose name is Tiago Aruã Schrott — weighed in at 7 lbs, 13 oz. According to Anna’s manager, Jeffrey Vanderveen the couple are "delighted that their son has finally arrived and looking forward to introducing him to their family and friends in the coming days."

Anna and Erwin had announced the pregnancy back in February, saying they were "very, very happy" that their family was growing. Around the time of the announcement, Jeffrey had said that Anna would continue to work "as long as her doctor" gave her the okay; Anna’s last performance was on June 27th in Vienna. The soprano star plans to return to the stage in January when she is scheduled to perform the leading role in the opera Lucia di Lammermoor in Russia and then in New York.
