Gauri Khan visits Rani Mukherji, baby Adira in hospital

Rani Mukherji and Aditya Chopra was blessed with a baby girl, named Adira on December 9th and Shahrukh Khan’s entrepreneur wife Gauri Khan was the first to pay a visit to the new mom and the new born.

Shahrukh Khan is very close to YRF and Aditya Chopra. But since he is busy with his upcoming film, ‘Dilwale’, his wife Gauri Khan filled up his absence.

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.
