Loving motherhood! Katherine Jenkins' sweetest photo of baby Aaliyah

Katherine Jenkins is clearly relishing her role as a new mother. The Welsh opera singer welcomed her first child with husband Andrew Levitas in September, and ever since the doting mum has never looked back.

In a rare move to share photos of her daughter, Katherine delighted fans with a new picture of baby Aaliyah. Keen to protect the little girl's identity, she posted a hazy but gorgeous photo of Aaliyah's hand.

"The Best 14 Weeks of my Life," Katherine wrote.

Katherine Jenkins welcomed baby Aaliyah in September

The 35-year-old announced her daughter's birth on Instagram by sharing a photo collage of the newborn's tiny hands and feet.

"Introducing our daughter Aaliyah Reign Levitas, who came loudly into the world weighing almost 7lbs and surrounded by love," wrote Katherine. "We are absolutely besotted with her & grateful for the beautiful blessing of this happy, healthy, little miracle."

The little girl is already following in her mum's musical footsteps

Since then, the mezzo-soprano has posted just a couple of photos of her baby, who is already following in her mum's musical footsteps.

Uploading a photo of Aaliyah treading on a piano, Katherine captioned it: "The only 7 week old encouraged to stand on the Steinway... #TomHanksEatYourHeartOut #BabyMusic #HowToEntertainYourBabyDuringWitchingHour @andrewlevitas."

Katherine called her daughter the "most amazing gift"

2015 was a year full of blessings for the family; Katherine and film director Andrew not only welcomed their first baby but also celebrated their first wedding anniversary on 27 September. The couple married at Hampton Court Palace in 2014, followed by a religious blessing in Katherine's hometown in Wales.

Katherine and Andrew have also been sure to mark Aaliyah's milestones, including her first Christmas.

"For us it's a very special one," the new mum wrote on Instagram on Christmas Day. "Aaliyah's first & I couldn't be more thankful for this most amazing gift in our lives. I'm also incredibly grateful for you all so thank you for all your love, support, well wishes, cards & gifts... Please send my love to your families & we'll see you next year. Katherine (and Aaliyah who's asleep on my shoulder!)."
