Bollywood heartthrob Hrithik Roshan, who is blessed with a boy, was hoping for a daughter but says he is more than happy with a son.
"But now I am equally happy with a son. I guess fatherhood is fun," Hrithik says.
"I can proudly say I have at last created something that's absolutely perfect," the perfectionist in Hrithik has never felt more pleased.
His son, who was born on Tuesday, has been named Rayhaan. "We were toying with another spelling for the name. But we all decided that this was the best spelling for the little one. His friends in school can call him Ray, if they want," papa already has plans for junior.
He returned from Rio de Janeiro in Brazil from the shooting of Dhoom 2 just four days before the birth of his son.
"Just in time! Four days before Suzanne had our baby. And though we shot a really cool song in that exotic location in Rio, my heart was completely back home.

"I can't tell you how it felt to be there in Rio knowing it (parenthood) can happen any time. It was like being all packed and ready for a holiday to paradise. But this was one journey - fatherhood - from which I was not going to come back.
"So I was torn between these two extreme emotions of extreme joy and utter apprehension...I tell you," said Hrithik.
"The journey into fatherhood is the biggest bliss a man can experience. I started feeling the change within me nine months ago. And now I feel that journey has finally culminated. I have never felt happier. This is the most perfect experience of my life."
And whom does Rayhaan look like?
"Well, right now it's hard to say. But everyone thinks he looks like his mom. And Suzanne is far better looking than me. So I guess he's going to be one helluva looker."
Hrithik is currently on paternity leave.
"Apart from some post-production work for 'Krissh' and that stint in Rio for 'Dhoom 2', I have been pretty much with Suzanne waiting for the baby's arrival. Now that it has happened, I feel a strange sense of peace within myself. It's as if there's suddenly more of Suzanne to love.
"The baby is an extension of her, and I just feel as though my world has become more spacious, happier."
