Sunidhi Chauhan, Hitesh Sonik blessed with a baby boy

Bollywood playback singer Sunidhi Chauhan becomes mother of a baby boy. The ace singer delivered a baby boy at 5:20 pm on Jan 1.

"The baby and mother are doing well. Sunidhi and husband Hitesh are proud with their little bundle of joy who arrived at 5.20 p.m. on January 1, 2018," Ranjana Dhanu, Sunidhi's obstetrician-gynecologist, said in a statement.

Bhupendra Avasthi, Director, Paediatrics of Surya Hospitals said: "The delivery was uneventful and the baby boy is healthy and doing well."

Her father has confirmed the news of her pregnancy some months ago. He said, “It’s a new chapter in Sunidhi’s life and we all are very happy and equally excited. Sunidhi has always been a hardworking child and has made us all proud with her work. But now that we will soon be grand parents I just can’t contain my happiness. She is finishing her prior commitments but as a family we have taken a decision to not let her do outstation shows as her health is of utmost priority to us.”

When Sunidhi Chauhan was five months pregnant, her close source said, "Yes, Sunidhi is five months pregnant. She hasn’t announced it to many except her family and close friends. In fact, she has minimalised her outings as to avoid any paparazzi spotting her with her baby bump. She is very excited and like any soon to be mommy, is busy preparing for the baby’s arrival and decorating her house.”

During pregnancy, Sunidhi Chauhan, who is always busy with stage shows, playback singing and judging singing shows cut short her work commitments to take care of herself and her upcoming baby. 

After dating for two years, Sunidhi Chauhan and Hitesh Sonik got married in 2012. This isn't Sunidhi’s first marriage, she was earlier married to choreographer Bobby Khan when she was only 18. The marriage did not last long and both drifted apart.

Congratulations to Sunidhi and Hitesh!
