The name Ivana and her Portuguese sculptor partner Carlos Garcia have chosen is of Hindi origin and means Divinity.
The 31-year-old, who has shunned social media over the past few weeks except to wish her niece Alana Martina a happy fourth birthday in early November, kept the birth secret for a whole month.
But over the weekend both Ivana and her partner broke their four-week silence to make their joyful announcement at the same time with a series of adorable photos showing Deva off to the world.
Ivana gushed alongside a photo of her baby sleeping in her hospital bed moments after her birth as she wrapped her fingers around her: “Dear friends.
“Today we want to introduce you to our daughter Deva. It’s a very special day as it is her first month of life.

“We are very happy and in love with our baby. There are no words to describe this love.
“Deva has made me a mummy. I only hope I can give her all she needs to be happy and take care of her and that God gives us great health.
“We are enjoying a very intimate time and adapting ourselves in what are moments of recovery and tiredness but at the same time moments of great emotion and happiness.”
She added in a direct message to her fiance, who Manchester United striker Cristiano is said to have introduced to Ivana: “Thank you the love of my life for giving me the greatest thing I have in the universe: our daughter. I love you.”
‘IMMENSELY IN LOVE’
Carlos added in a separate message: “Today our wonderful daughter Deva is one month old.
“We are immensely in love with you. You give us the greatest happiness we can wish for. We are very fortunate that everything went well and both mum and baby are fine.”
Thanking his partner for ‘every second together’, he continued: “Thank you for your sacrifice, perseverance, love and for giving me the most precious thing in life, our daughter. You are a wonderful woman, sister, daughter and now mother. Love you.”

Georgina, who recently revealed her unborn twins are a boy and a girl who are due to arrive in April, was one of the first to congratulate her sister, writing on her Instagram: “My precious baby. I love her” alongside a heart emoticon.
Ivana confirmed in July she was expecting her first child with her painter and sculptor partner.
The pretty brunette, daughter of an Argentinian former footballer and a Spanish mum, revealed her happy news to the world with an Instagram post filmed at a beach in Gijon where she had written the words ‘Baby is coming’ using pebbles and the sand.
She told Carlos Garcia in a message along the homemade footage ‘I love you’ describing the news as a miracle and the surprise of her life.
She later went on to post new footage of her and her partner touching her belly for signs of the unborn child’s movements, gushing: “Mummy and daddy’s baby, giving its first little kicks.
“It’s a dream having you and feeling you inside me.”
Carlos responded by describing Ivana as the “best mum in the world.”
In July Ivana was said to have quickly deleted an edited photo that appeared to hint Georgina may add to her family.
Spanish media reported at the time that Georgina’s older sibling had teased her sister was expecting again by publishing a now-deleted picture of her on Instagram in a white jacket suit with a heart emoji over her belly.
WORK OF ART
Carlos Garcia is the man Cristiano Ronaldo turned to to create a selfie sculpture that replaced an infamous bronze statue at Madeira’s Funchal Airport by local artist Emanuel Santos.
The earlier work of art was mocked around the world after it was unveiled in March 2017, with critics accusing Santos of drinking too much Madeiran wine before making the bust.
Others likened it to former Irish international Niall Quinn.
Carlos, who has been described by Spanish media as part of Cristiano’s close circle, is understood to have been presented to Ivana by the Man United striker who flew his family including his doting mum Dolores to Manchester on his private jet from their home island of Madeira so they could spend Christmas together.
Ivana and Carlos started dating in 2018 and are recently believed to have got engaged.
