Aishwarya Rai, Abhishek Bachchan welcome baby girl

Internationally known Indian actress and former Miss World Aishwarya Rai Bachchan has given birth to a baby girl, according to a tweet from the 38-year-old star's husband, fellow actor Abhishek Bachchan.

Amidst all of the "thank you" replies Bachchan has posted on his Twitter account in the last few hours is his initial, enthusiastic "IT'S A GIRL!!!!!!" announcement Wednesday morning.

"Thank you all for your prayers and good wishes. Both Aishwarya and the baby are doing great and taking some much needed rest," he added. "And I'm trying my level best to get rid of this caffeine high and get some sleep too. Don't think it'll work. TOO EXCITED!!!!"

Rai's father-in-law announced that she was expecting over the summer, and her movie "Heroine" was put on hold as a result.

    I saw her in Bride and Prejudice. Besides being a harmlessly silly movie – she is just gorgeous. I would watch her over Julia Roberts even if I didn't understand the language she was speaking.

    I must add...although Aishwarya is beautiful, she is not the mot beautiful ....the most beautiful is the gorgeous Adriana Lima! She insanely attractive!. I think South America has the most beautiful women in the world. Visit Argentina, Brazil or Venezuela.

    We are all different for what ever reason. We are all young once but immaturity can last a lifetime. If you can't stay on topic, please don't post. If you can't behave, we are not here to parent you. That was your parents job and looks like you didn't learn or your parents failed you. No one here wants to babysit.

    They are Bollywood actors and very popular in Asia and many other parts of the world where there are Indians living...including the USA! Aishwarya is considered beautiful becasue she simply is...she is married into the famous Bachchan family. Her famous in-laws are and were very famous movie stars back in the 70's adn 80's. Bollywood is the largest film producer in India. Essentially Indian films are made for an indian audiences but if you are patient enough to sit through one of Devdas.... songs are the essence of hindi movies.

    It's the country with the most billionaires. But i feel ashamed of them when villages are hurting with no clean water, sewer systems, WiFi, and better educational prospecting. Than they will truly steal all the jobs after that.

    I agree eastern indians are EXTREMELY racist as a whole and will kill a woman off in a minute if she gets pregnant by an indian man and she is not indian! Many murders of American women have occurred because of racist indian families!

    Can someone who is eastern indian (not to be confused with American indians, or west indians) explain?

      Actually it's your English that's terrible and your lack of intelligence is absolutely baffling. Do us (and yourself) a favor and keep your trap shut since you have nothing but nonsensical gibberish to offer.

      Beef is forbidden for many reasons go do some research on that. The pray to the mouse, don't eat it. The mouse is a small animal that is used as a symbol of EGO, meaning keep you're ego small as a mouse, and you'll go places with every aspect of you're life.

    Has anyone seen any of there terrible work? I'm guessing, no. Couldn't care less. There culture baffles me. They won't dine on cow, but consider rats as an alternative food supply. Insane.

      Atleast they are not blowing up themselves to kill others. Now that matters to me 10000x more than what they eat or what they pray

    Aishwarya is A beautiful woman-NOT the most beautiful woman in the world. What a stupid thing to say! Have you idiots scoured the entire planet to verify that statement? The MOST beautiful women are the wives, mothers, sisters, and daughters who love us, take care of us and sacrifice for us many times over.

    Congrats on the new baby girl!! Now she will be a precious little beauty.

      Looks like someone touched a nerve there. Take a deep breath and count to 10. Some chicks are pretty and some people get carried away describing them. There are plenty of ugly chicks in India.

    Congratulations to both of them on their new bundle of joy! Hope she is as beautiful as her mother. Curious to find out what they named the little one – strange there is no mention of the name. Ash is just so beautiful to look at – he is one lucky guy!

    Oh my god the amount of racism on this article makes me think as humans we're taking giant leaps back instead of progressing. lol @ ragneesh gandu Indian impersonator that's not how Indians talk. India is more literate than pakistan. India has the largest English speaking population in the world. And people should try to stay on topic.

      LovelyLavender, we don't name our daughters "Nakusa" or unwanted, unlike nearly 300 girls who were granted new names by the government in a renaming ceremony that took place in India a few weeks ago. The female population there is dropping. People discussing a real issue isn't being racist. Don't be so ignorant. A few abusers in the US is not the same thing as a country that devalues an entire gender.

      Dude Paul!, You seem to be as well informed about India as someone who learnt about U.S by only watching Kardashians on TV. Bravo Paul! way to go perpetuating the American intelligence on international affairs.
