Actor Dia Mirza took to Instagram to announce the birth of her newborn son. Dia is married to Vaibhav Rekhi. Although the couple shared the news on Wednesday, they had welcomed their child in May. Dia has posted an emotional post for her child and a gratitude-filled message for the well-wishers. She also talks about the complications she has undergone during her pregnancy.
Apart from being a distinguished actor, Dia Mirza is the UNEP Goodwill Ambassador, United Nations SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals) advocate and the ambassador of Wildlife Trust of India. Additionally, she is an ambitious climate activist. In her recent post, she is conversing with a young climate activist from Bengaluru.
Dia Mirza on Childbirth and its Challenges
Read Dia Mirza’s post here:
To paraphrase Elizabeth Stone,
“To have a child is to decide forever to have your heart go walking around outside your body.”
These words perfectly exemplify Vaibhav & my feelings right now. Our heartbeat, our son Avyaan Azaad Rekhi was born on May 14th. Having arrived early, our little miracle has since then been cared for by tireless nurses and doctors in the Neonatal ICU.
A sudden appendectomy during my pregnancy and a subsequent and very severe bacterial infection could have led to sepsis and proven to be life threatening. Thankfully, the timely care and intervention by our doctor ensured the safe birth of our baby via an emergency C-section.
As we watch this tiny being, this Zen master in awe and wonder, we learn from him, in all humility, the true meaning of trusting the universe and of parenthood. And to not be afraid, and so we humbly take the lead from his resilience and courage. We do not have enough words to thank all those who continue to help us live this story of hope and faith and create a safe, healing, nurturing space for Avyaan and I. He will be home soon and his elder sister Samaira and grand parents are waiting to hold him in their arms.
Dia’s Message for the Well-Wishers
The 39-year-old actor concluded her post by thanking everyone. She writes, ‘To our well-wishers and fans, I just want to say – your concern has always meant a lot to me and if it was possible to share this news before, we would have. Thank you all for all the love, light, faith and prayers. We extend them back to everyone who is struggling to hold on to hope right now or is praying for a loved one.
We see you, we hear you and together, we will get past this time. Dia & Vaibhav.’
Dia again thanked fans and friends for the greetings in her Instagram live session. Dia’s husband Vaibhav Rekhi has a daughter from his previous marriage, therefore Avyaan is the couple’s firstborn.
