‘Sasural Genda Phool’ actor Jay Soni welcomes a baby girl


Here is a good news for ‘Sasural Genda Phool’ actor Jay Soni’s fans. The actor and his wife Pooja Shah welcomed a baby girl on April 18. Few months ago, Jay announced the news of his wife’s pregnancy with a funny video.  On April 18, the couple welcomed their first child.

A close source revealed, “Both mother and child are doing good and Jay is over the moon. He has always wanted a baby girl, and with his wish coming true, he is jumping like a kid. Pooja is currently in the hospital but they should arrive home soon after the regular check-ups and formalities.”

Earlier, talking to a leading daily, Jay had said, “The baby is due in April. I didn’t disclose the news earlier, as we are not allowed to share it till the first trimester is completed. I am extremely excited.”

Jay is ecstatic over the new addition to his family.

“I am on cloud nine. I can’t even begin to explain how it feels. I was inside the operation theatre with Pooja and I am really proud of her. She was so strong throughout. When the doctor announced that it was a girl, both of us started screaming with joy. I didn’t even realise that I had tears when the baby looked at me for the first time. It was surreal,” he told TOI.

Jay further added, “My daughter was born on the auspicious occasion of Akshaya Tritiya. She is truly a blessing for us. My friends and relatives have been telling me that ‘Laxmi aayi hai on such an auspicious day.”

In January, a grand baby shower was hosted for Pooja and it was attended by several celebs from the television industry.

Jay Soni appeared in shows like Sanskaar – Dharohar Apno Ki, Sa Re Ga Ma Pa Li’l Champs (Zee TV) and Kuch Rang Pyar Ke Aise Bhi (Sony TV). Bhaag Bakool Bhaag (Colors TV). Jay and Pooja had also participated in seventh season of dance reality show Nach Baliye.

Congratulations to Jay Soni and Pooja Shah!
