Mahima reportedly gave birth to a healthy baby girl on Sunday just minutes before noon at Mumbai’s Leelavati Hospital. Her husband Bobby Mukherjee, an architect, was by her side when the baby came.
Mahima and Bobby had married in March this year in a very low-key ceremony in Las Vegas. It is clear that Mahima was pregnant at the time of marriage. In fact, the marriage remained a secret to media for a long time, leading to many speculations when Mahima was spotted with a huge tummy.Bobby says he is very happy to have a baby girl from Mahima. He already has two sons from his previous marriage.
While the newborn girl is said to be healthy, there are no confirmed reports about Mahima’s well being. Some sources are quoted as saying that she is sick and under medical care.
The baby’s name will be decided in the coming days.
GURINDER CHADHA GIVES BIRTH TO TWINS
British-Indian filmmaker Gurinder Chadha, director of "Bend It Like Beckham", gave birth to twins last week after undergoing an emergency caesarean operation.
Chadha is said to be recovering well after giving birth to a healthy boy and a girl June 7, reports contactmusic.com. Her husband Paul Berges and her 80-year-old mother, Balwant, were at her bedside at the University College Hospital.
The twins had been due next month but in an interview in February, the first-time mother correctly predicted they would arrive early.
She said: "It's twins – there's lots of twins in my family. Paul and I have been married for 10 years so we're thrilled. It's been very hard to plan as we've been so busy. The babies are due in July, but twins always come early."
