Bollywood actor Lara Dutta and tennis player Mahesh Bhupathi, who tied the knot in February last year, have been blessed with a baby girl.
Mahesh Bhupathi tweeted: "ITS A GIRL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! @DuttaLara. I Love u...."
Over the last few days, Lara has been busy setting up house for the little one. "It's fun having my parents here and getting the house baby ready! Anticipation and excitement in the air!:-) feels good 2 start 2012 like that," Lara wrote on her Twitter page.
The sportstar was keen on having a daughter. "Mahesh is very excited and would like to have a daughter. However, as a mother, when you are going through the experience of carrying a baby for nine months, the first-and-foremost priority is to have a healthy baby," Lara had told HT Cafe.
During her baby shower, Lara had stated that 90 per cent predictions suggested it’s a baby boy. She had said: "And as for us, we don’t know. So, we will be equally surprised. I don’t mind if it’s a boy or a girl."
Predictions might have gone wrong, but the couple is surely on cloud nine with the new addition to the family.
