Soha Ali Khan and Kumal Khemu are now parents to a baby girl, who was born on Friday on the occasion of Mahanavami (the ninth day of Navratri festival). Kunal Khemu announced with this tweet: “We are over the moon to share that we have been blessed with a beautiful baby girl on this auspicious day. Thank you for the love and blessings.”
Soha Ali Khan and Kunal Khemu got married in 2015 and this is their first child together. Fans of the actor couple have shared congratulatory messages for the new member of the family and some have also requested Soha and Kunal to choose one of Maa Durga’s many names for their baby girl.
In August, Soha Ali Khan’s family and friends had organized a baby shower for her. Kareena Kapoor, who is married to Soha’s brother Saif Ali Khan, featured in several pictures from the ceremony, just as Neha Dhupia and Konkona Sen Sharma did.
Recently, Soha wrote a bog for The Quint, in which she talked about her “nine-month migration from womanhood to motherhood.” In the blog she also narrated how longingly she waited for this day when her baby will be in her arms. “I check my expected due date several times a day in the desperate hope that it has moved up but of course it’s always the same. The answer comes to me like a familiar and comforting voice from the past, ‘not long now’,” she wrote.
Soha Ali Khan debuted in Bollywood with 2004 film Dil Maange More and has featured in films such as Rang De! Bansanti and Saheb, Biwi Aur Gangster Returns. Her last two films – 31st October and Ghayal Once Again – released in 2016.
