Shilpa Shetty and Raj Kundra blessed with a Baby Boy

It was a blissful Monday morning for Shilpa and Raj at the Hinduja Healthcare Boutique Hospital in Khar, Mumbai. The couple went to the hospital for Shilpa’s routine medical check up on Sunday and Shilpa was admitted immediately as her contractions had begun. At the break of dawn on Monday , the couple became proud parents of a beautiful baby boy. Shilpa’s husband Raj Kundra stood by her side all through the labour and witnessed his son being born.

Raj, a proud husband and a blessed father, was ecstatic to share this news through the micro-blogging site Twitter. He tweeted, “God has blessed us with a beautiful baby boy. Both mother and baby are fine. I am thrilled to bits!!!!!!” “A big thank you to my wife @TheShilpaShetty for the bestest gift ever, Dr Kiran Cohelo and all the staff at Hinduja Hospital! Thank you all for your love and wishes for our new born. Both mum and Baby K are resting. Our Parents now turn grandparents.”

Buzz is that the entire family were present at the hospital to celebrate the happy occasion. Shilpa’s mother Sunanda Shetty commented, “"The baby is beautiful, lovely. Shilpa is doing well too. We are absolutely delighted to be grandparents now." Sunanda added that it was too early to think of a name for the baby and they were reveling in his birth for now. Raj Kundra has been tweeting frequently to update fans and media about the latest situation. He tweeted this morning, “Day 2 both mother and father have hardly slept every small noise from the baby and we are up on our feet! Now we value our parents more!”

“After seeing what all a mother goes through to have a baby and give birth, no wonder kids are always closer to their mums! #jealous My son is a blessing from God! This is the single biggest biological change a man can go through in his entire lifetime! WOW, he added.”

Greetings and messages from Bollywood have been pouring in to bless the new arrival in the Kundra family.
