Congratulations and in order for Dia Mirza and her husband, Vaibhav Rekhi as they welcomed their baby boy today! Dia took to social media to announce the good news and shared a heartfelt note expressing the purest set of emotions.

Dia and Vaibhav tied the knot in February in an intimate wedding ceremony and the pictures went quite viral! A few months post that, Dia announced the pregnancy news with a picture of her cradling the baby bump while vacationing in the Maldives. The lovely couple welcomed their baby boy, Avyaan Azaad Rekhi today and Dia posted a picture of her holding the baby’s hand. She also shared a note speaking about the pre-mature delivery and thanked the doctors for their timely intervention. Dia further revealed that she had undergone an appendectomy surgery during her pregnancy and had contracted a very severe case of bacterial infection, due to which the doctors had to perform an emergency C-section to deliver the baby.

Dia announced the good news via a post on Instagram, her caption read-

“To have a child is to decide forever to have your heart go walking around outside your body.”

These words by Elizabeth Stone 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.

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.

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.

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 💖🙏🏻💖
