Los Angeles - Hayden Panettiere has given birth to a baby girl.

The Nashville star and her fiancé Wladimir Klitschko welcomed Kaya on Tuesday last week.

The parents told PEOPLE: "We are over the moon and madly in love!"

The new arrival - which weighed 2.7 kgs - is the couple's first child together.

Meanwhile, speaking before the birth, Hayden revealed that she is ''so ready'' to become a mother.

She shared: ''I'm so ready to hold my baby girl - I'm going to be a very hands on mum.

''I'm thrilled that I am having a girl first because I feel like I know a lot about raising a strong woman. I feel very empowered myself and I think my daughter will, too.''

The 25-year-old also previously spoke up about starting a family with her fiancé.

She said: ''I've lived a very big life, and I don't feel my age, and I feel like I was born to be a mother.

''Sometimes people speak about [having kids] like, 'Your life ends - you're never going to be able to do anything again!' And I'm like, 'What are you talking about?'

''Motherhood is the most beautiful, exciting thing, and there's nothing that I feel like I can't accomplish while having children in my life.''
