Congratulatory phone calls poured in on Wednesday from the entire film industry to wish proud parents Suzanne and Hrithik Roshan, who were blessed with a boy.

"It's jubilation in the family and we are all elated," said Rakesh Roshan, the superstar's father and acclaimed director.

"The child will be named Rehan and the naming ceremony will take place sometime later," revealed Rakesh Roshan.

Suzanne gave birth to the child at 3.30 pm at the Nanavati Hospital on Tuesday.

"They will be discharged from the hospital probably the day after tomorrow," added Roshan senior.

Hrithik, who was shooting for Yash Raj Films' Dhoom 2 in Brazil with Aishwarya Rai, flew down to the city just a few days ago to be by his wife's side.

Talking to the media, Hrithik said: "I have just seen the baby and the mother a few minutes ago. They both looked healthy and happy. This is the most joyous moment of my life. I want to enjoy this moment with my family and Suzanne."

When asked if he was expecting a boy or a girl, Hrithik said that it was his baby and he did not care whether it was a boy or a girl. He called his son the most precious gift from god.

Year 2006 has been important for Hrithik on both personal and professional fronts: the birth of the child will be followed by the release of the much-awaited home production Krrish.
