Ranbir Kapoor-Alia Bhatt welcome ‘magical’ baby girl, say they’re blessed and ‘obsessed’ parents


Actors Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt welcomed their first baby at 12: 05 pm in HN Reliance Hospital (Girgaon), Mumbai on Sunday. The couple had gotten married earlier this year in April.

The couple has welcomed a baby girl. Alia Bhatt took to Instagram and shared the announcement which read, “And in the best news of our lives, our baby is here, and what a magical girl she is. We are officially bursting with love, blessed and obsessed parents, love love love Ranbir and Alia.”

Soon after their marriage, it came as a pleasant surprise to fans when Alia announced that she was pregnant. After the hectic promotions for her successful film Brahmastra, Alia launched her own maternity brand, called Edamama. It has been a busy year for both the actors, as Ranbir starred in Shamshera and Brahmastra, while Alia featured in Gangubai Kathiawadi, Darlings, RRR, and Brahmastra.

In an earlier interview to CNBC, Alia had talked about how she and Ranbir would plan their busy schedules after the baby was born. “I think the journey of discovery will begin once the baby comes. Definitely the intention is to share, as that’s most important. Ranbir is very happy. He said, ‘Baby you work from this month, so I’ll take time off, and then I come back, and you take time off.’ We just keep taking time off. He is very happy to share that responsibility. He recently said in an interview that he has a ‘big responsibility on his head, and that is to send me (Alia) back to work as the movies will complain if I don’t do my bit as the parent.”

On the work front, Alia has Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahani as well as Heart of Stone in the pipeline.
