The baby, their first child, was born at the Seven Hills Hospital. Mother and daughter were both doing fine.
"IT’S A GIRL!!," Abhishek, 35, posted on micro-blogging site Twitter.com. He had recently said he wanted a daughter who looked like Aishwarya.
Proud grandfather Amitabh Bachchan too couldn’t control his happiness and tweeted: "I AM DADA to the cutest baby girl, A dada ji … Ecstatic."
Hospital sources said the delivery was normal and came a few minutes before 10 am. The Bachchan and Rai families were present for the momentous occasion.
Aishwarya, 38, developed labor pains around 4 a.m. and was taken to the labor room where the delivery took place after nearly six hours.
The actress is on the fifth floor of the luxury private hospital in Andheri east.
The hospital had booked three rooms on the floor — one for Aishwarya, the other for the Bachchan family and the third for the Rai family. The entire floor was kept out of bounds for all except the two families.
The hospital has been under tight security for the past three days in expectation of the youngest member of the Bachchan family.
Aishwarya was admitted to the hospital Monday night, according to her spokesperson.
The Bachchan family had been waiting for the baby’s arrival for a few days and preparing for the child’s welcome.
