Zayed Khan and wife Mallika have a baby boy
Zayed and Mallika have been blessed with their first child, a baby boy. Mallika delivered the healthy baby boy on January 18, 2008. Although the baby was two weeks premature, he is healthy and weighs 6.1 pounds. Mallika had a normal delivery and seems fine after the delivery. The baby was named Zidaan Zayed Abbas Khan, after Zayed's favourite renowned football player.
Zayed's parents have become a dada-dadi for the first and are extremely excited. An excited Zayed said "I am on top of the world! It’s a beautiful warm feeling... I’m feeling mushy and protective. It’s still to sink in that I have become a father. The baby looks 50-50 — half like me, half like Malli (his pet name for Mallaika). I don’t think he wanted to disappoint any of us. My family are all gathered at the hospital. Now we plan to throw a party in true Khan style."
