Andrea Bocelli & Fiancée Welcome a Daughter
Andrea Bocelli and Veronica Berti
Andrea Bocelli has plenty to sing about – there's a new addition in his family.

The Italian tenor and his fiancée, Veronica Berti, welcomed a baby girl last Wednesday, Britain's Hello! magazine reports.

Bocelli, 53, who has been blind since a soccer accident at age 12, and his bride-to-be named their daughter Virginia, which is of Etruscan origin, Berti says.

"The thing I like about this name is that none of my friends has it," adds Berti, who is also Bocelli's manager.

Baby Virginia joins brothers Amos, 17, and Matteo, 14, the singer's children with his first wife, Enrica Cenzatti, from whom he separated in 2002.

"With a dad and two brothers," she says, "[Virginia] will have very attentive bodyguards."
