The new Mommy shared an adorable picture from her baby shower with her hubby Rahul and wrote with it - "Ecstatic to announce the arrival of our Angelic Baby Girl earlier today. Thank you for all your love and wishes. She is the best birthday present I could ever ask for! 💝"

The couple also released a statement in the evening that read -

The last nine months have been most special and exciting for the both of us and we would like to thank all our well wishers and everyone who has been part of our journey for all their love and support," the statement read.
