Dia Mirza and Vaibhav Rekhi have announced the arrival of their baby boy in May.
Whilst they shared the news on Wednesday, Mirza shared an emotional post of their new bundle of joy that they’ve named Avyaan Azaad. The actress revealed that their son was was born prematurely and has been taken care of at a hospital.
She said, “To have a child is to decide forever to have your heart go walking around outside your body.”
She added, “These words perfectly exemplify Vaibhav and 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.”
In her post, Dia Mirza mentioned that “timely care and intervention by our doctor ensured” the safe birth of their baby boy. “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,” she added.
She went on to thank their well-wishers, “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.”
She concluded by saying, “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 – Dia and Vaibhav.”
