Actress Dia Mirza took to Instagram today to share the news of her baby’s birth. Mirza disclosed the news 2 months later as the actress and her husband Vaibhav Rekhi welcomed their baby boy in May this year.
She shared the happy news of her baby’s arrival with her fans on the social media platform with an emotional note. She included a quote by Elizabeth Stone in her post for son Avyaan Azaad, the name for her baby boy mentioned in the same post. “To have a child is to decide forever to have your heart go walking around outside your body,” she wrote.
Mirza revealed that her son is still at the hospital getting the care he needs after being born premature. The “little miracle” was both on May 14th, she added, “These words perfectly exemplify Vaibhav and my feelings right now. Our heartbeat, our son Avyaan Azaad Rekhi was born on May 14th. Having arrived early, our little miracle has since then been cared for by tireless nurses and doctors in the Neonatal ICU.”
“Timely care and intervention by our doctor ensured” their baby gets delivered safely, the actress wrote as she required a sudden appendectomy during her pregnancy followed by a “very severe bacterial infection” that had the potential to become “life threatening” if not dealt with emergency C-section, she further added.
Mirza also extended her gratitude to her well-wishers and family members, including Azaad’s “elder sister Samaira” while sharing her prayers to them all. “As we watch this tiny being, this Zen master in awe and wonder, we learn from him, in all humility, the true meaning of trusting the universe and of parenthood. And to not be afraid, and so we humbly take the lead from his resilience and courage. We do not have enough words to thank all those who continue to help us live this story of hope and faith and create a safe, healing, nurturing space for Avyaan and I. He will be home soon and his elder sister Samaira and grandparents are waiting to hold him in their arms.”

Concluding with a thank you-note signed by her and Mr Rekhi, she wrote, “To our well-wishers and fans, I just want to say – your concern has always meant a lot to me and if it was possible to share this news before, we would have. Thank you all for all the love, light, faith and prayers. We extend them back to everyone who is struggling to hold on to hope right now or is praying for a loved one. We see you, we hear you and together, we will get past this time – Dia and Vaibhav.”
