The Bollywood diva Dia Mirza gave birth to a baby boy on14th July. The actress tied knot with Vaibhav Rekhi, earlier this year on 15th February.
The couple announced about the birth of their son on their social media handle. They named their little one “Avyaan Azaad Rekhi”. With a heart-warming note, Dia shared a picture of her son and informed that the baby is pre matured and is currently under the care of the hospital and in the Neonatal ICU.
The picture reveals of Avyaan’s tiny hands in her fingers and captioned it as, “To have a child is to decide forever to have your heart go walking around outside your body.’ These words perfectly exemplify Vaibhav & my feelings right now. Our heartbeat, our son Avyaan Azaad Rekhi was born on May 14th. Having arrived early, our little miracle has since then been cared for by tireless nurses and doctors in the Neonatal ICU.” She further added, “A sudden appendectomy during my pregnancy and a subsequent and very severe bacterial infection could have led to sepsis and proven to be life threatening. Thankfully, the timely care and intervention by our doctor ensured the safe birth of our baby via an emergency C-section.”
Talking about their sunshine, the actress continues,” As we watch this tiny being, this Zen master in awe and wonder, we learn from him, in all humility, the true meaning of trusting the universe and of parenthood. And to not be afraid, and so we humbly take the lead from his resilience and courage. We do not have enough words to thank all those who continue to help us live this story of hope and faith and create a safe, healing, nurturing space for Avyaan and I. He will be home soon and his elder sister Samaira and grandparents are waiting to hold him in their arms.”
Many Bollywood celebrities congratulated the couple for the beginning of their new journey. Anushka Sharma and Kareena Kapoor Khan were also among their well-wishers.
Dia also thanked her fans for their prayers and good wishes. She said, “To our well-wishers and fans, I just want to say – your concern has always meant a lot to me and if it was possible to share this news before, we would have. Thank you all for all the love, light, faith and prayers. We extend them back to everyone who is struggling to hold on to hope right now or is praying for a loved one. We see you, we hear you and together, we will get past this time.”
Earlier the couple was trolled for announcing about her pregnancy few weeks after marriage.
With that Dia replied, “Firstly, we didn’t marry because we were having a baby together. We were already marrying as we wanted to spend our lives together. We discovered we were going to have a baby while we were planning our wedding. So this marriage is not the result of pregnancy. We didn’t announce the pregnancy until we knew its safe (medical reasons). This is the happiest news of my life. I’ve waited for many many years for this to happen. No way would I hide it for any reason other than medical.”
