Dia Mirza and Vaibhav Rekhi have welcomed their first child. The couple named him Avyaan Azaad Rekhi. He “arrived early” on May 14.
Dia Mirza and her husband Vaibhav Rekhi have welcomed their first child. The actress shared a photo of her baby boy’s hand and revealed his name as Avyaan Azaad Rekhi. The couple, who tied the knot on February 15, had their son on May 14. Announcing the good news on Instagram, Dia shared an adorable photo of her son’s hand and shared that her son arrived early.
“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 wrote.
She paraphrased a quote by Elizabeth Stone and wrote, “To have a child is to decide forever to have your heart go walking around outside your body.”
The actress further opened up about the complications she had during her pregnancy and wrote that she had to undergo an emergency C-section due to a bacterial infection. “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 revealed.
She shared that since the baby arrived early, the couple is watching the “tiny being” in the neonatal ICU, adding that his elder sister Samaira (Vaibhav’s daughter from his first marriage) can’t wait to hold her younger brother.
She further wrote, “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 grand parents are waiting to hold him in their arms. o 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 💖🙏🏻💖”
