Indian tennis star Sania Mirza has been blessed with a baby boy and close friend Farah Khan cannot hold her excitement. On Tuesday, the filmmaker took to her social media account to make the big announcement. She posted an adorable photo which had ‘#BabyMirzaMalikIsHere’ written on it and a caricature which announced, “I am Khaala”. Khaala is an Urdu word used to address mother’s sister.
Farah and Sania have been the closest friends for a long time now. The two have given Bollywood buffs some of the wittiest one-liners whenever they have come together and one such instance is their appearance together on Koffee With Karan season 5.
In her another post, Farah shared a photo of herself and Sania. “My dearest n best friend becomes a mum!! @mirzasaniar I couldn’t b happier 🎉🎉🎉lov uuuuu n arriving soon to meet the lil prince♥️♥️♥️,” Farah captioned the photo.
Farah’s husband Shirish Kunder also tweeted and congratulated Sania Mirza and Shoaib Malik. “Congratulations, @MirzaSania and @realshoaibmalik on becoming proud parents! Born to two sporting legends from two different countries, #BabyMirzaMalik is symbolic in more ways than one. ❤️,” he wrote. Raveena Tandon too wished the sportstars on her Twitter handle. Raveena tweeted, “Congratulations! @MirzaSania @realshoaibmalik ! Lots of love and ashirwaads to the lil one !”
Sania’s husband and Pakistani cricketer Shoaib Malik also shared the big news with his fans and followers. He tweeted, “Excited to announce: It’s a boy, and my girl is doing great and keeping strong as usual #Alhumdulilah. Thank you for the wishes and Duas, we are humbled. #BabyMirzaMalik.”
While announcing the pregnancy in April, Mirza addressed her yet to be born child as ‘#BabyMirzaMalik’. Talking about how she felt about it, she told The Indian Express, “I am not scared or anxious. Rather, I am anticipating a lot of changes in my life.”
