Adira is God's greatest gift, new mom Rani Mukherji

Rani Mukherji and Aditya Chopra welcome their first child, daughter Adira. The baby was born at Mumbai Breach Candy hospital. The highly delighted Rani says Adira is God’s greatest gift for her and her husband Aditya Chopra.

The 37-year-old actress thanked her fans, friends and well wishers for their "unconditional support and blessings".

"I would like to thank all my well wishers and fans. Today life has given us God's greatest gift with Adira. We thank fans our friends and well wishers for their unconditional support and blessings. With joy we begin this new chapter in our lives," Rani said in a statement. Yash Raj Films, headed by 44-year-old Aditya, made the announcement on their official Twitter account.

"Rani Mukerji and Aditya Chopra become proud parents to a baby girl named 'Adira'," the post read.

No sooner the news was made official, congratulation messages started to pour in. Filmmaker Karan Johar, Ayushmann Khurrana and Parineeti Chopra were the first to congratulate the couple on the arrival of the baby.

Rani and Aditya secretly entered into wedlock in April last year. It is Rani’s first marriage while Aditya was previously married to Payal Khanna but they got divorced in 2009.
