Soha Ali Khan and Kunal Kemmu confirmed their pregnancy in style in April this year and now their “joint production” is here. Soha gave birth to a daughter on Friday and the parents are “over the moon”. Kunal, taking to Twitter, wrote, “We are over the moon to share we have been blessed with a beautiful baby girl on this auspicious day Thank you for the love and blessings.” Mahanavami is being celebrated across India on Friday.
At the launch of Golmaal Again trailer, Kunal was in a rush as he wanted to ensure he was at Soha’s side all the time. Earlier, it was Kunal who confirmed the pregnancy, “Soha and I are very happy to announce a joint production coming later this year — our first child! We feel blessed and thank you all for your good wishes.”
The couple, after dating for a long time, got engaged in Paris in July 2014. The Go Goa Gone actor had proposed Soha in the city of love. They got married in January 2015.
The wishes for the couple have already started flowing in. Priyanka Chopra was among the first few to congratulate Soha and Kunal. She wrote on Twitter, “This is amazing news! Much love and joy to you and your family.”
Soha had said earlier about how Kunal has made her journey to motherhood so easy, “Kunal and I have been together for nine years now. We feel very blessed and we’re ready for this phase in our life. But I have not felt alone at all. I have my family, and Kunal’s family with me. Kunal has been a wonderful partner throughout, and this phase can be overwhelming for the mother-to-be and the father. He has taken care of me very well.”
“My mom [Sharmila Tagore] and mom-in-law have a lot to teach me. They have all seen and brought up so many children themselves. It’s like being on a film set. People ask me what’s my mother’s advice to me and she’s always said that in a film also, when it comes to acting, there’s one director and even on a journey like this [pregnancy], it’s very important firstly to consult with your doctor and not get confused by too much advice,” Soha said, adding sister-in-law Kareena Kapoor Khan is there with a lot of advice too. Kareena gave birth to son Taimur Ali Khan last year.
