The Israeli model Bar Refaeli has given birth to a healthy baby girl.

Refaeli, 31, gave birth to her first child on Thursday at the Tel Aviv Sourasky Medical Center, which is also known as Ichilov hospital. The baby, weighing seven pounds, was named Liv.

Refaeli is considered Israel’s leading female model.

She is married to businessman Adi Ezra, and they both thanked hospital, staff and doctors for their help delivering their daughter, according to Channel 2 news.

Refaeli had been documenting her growing baby bump over the past nine months on social media.

Just three days ago she posted a side-by-side snap with her friend Valentina Micchetti that required a double take.

One picture shows Bar hugging her heavily pregnant friend in Ibiza in 2013 — the other shows the exact reverse in Tel Aviv, with both women switching, outfits.
