Anna Netrebko has a new tenor in her life.
The soprano gave birth to a 7-pound, 13-ounce boy Friday in Vienna, Austria, New York-based publicist Glenn Petry said.
Her fiance, bass-baritone Erwin Schrott, attended the birth. The son was named Tiago Aura Schrott.
"Both Anna and the baby are doing great. I feel extremely blessed to have this very special experience for the second time in my life," Schrott said.
He also is father of a 10-year-old daughter, Iara, with another woman.
Netrebko, who turns 37 on Sept. 18, last performed June 27 at a concert in Vienna. She is scheduled to return to the stage Jan. 14 and 17 in the title role of Donizetti's "Lucia di Lammermoor" at the Mariinsky Theater in St. Petersburg, Russia, then perform the same role at New York's Metropolitan Opera starting Jan. 26.
