PARIS, Sept 13 (AFP) - Italian star Monica Bellucci and her husband, French actor Vincent Cassel, became parents over the weekend to their first child, a baby girl named Deva, Bellucci's agent told AFP Monday.  

"Everybody's doing well," the agent, Laurent Gregoire, said. He said the baby was born in Rome on Sunday but gave no further details.  

Bellucci, a 35-year-old former model, has carved out a healthy film career in her native Italy, in her adopted homeland of France and in Hollywood.  

She recently starred in the last two "Matrix" films and as Mary Magdalene in Mel Gibson's "The Passion of the Christ", and is currently shooting a US action movie titled "The Lord of War".  

She met Cassel, 37, on the set of the 1996 French film "The Apartment". The two have since played opposite each other in other productions, notably a R-rated exploration of violence called "Irreversible", the fantasy action picture "The Brotherhood of the Wolf" and a French espionage drama titled "Secret Agents".  

The name Deva is of Sanskrit origin and means divine.
