Dia Mirza and husband Vaibhav Rekhi have welcomed son Avyaan Azaad Rekhi. The actor shared a photo of her son, revealing that he was born prematurely and is currently in a neonatal ICU.
The news has surprised Dia’s fans and friends in the industry. In an emotional post, Dia shared that the little one was born on May 14.
Dia wrote, “To paraphrase Elizabeth Stone, “Having a child is forever deciding to let your heart roam outside of your body.”
These words perfectly illustrate Vaibhav and my feelings at the moment. Our heartbeat, our son Avyaan Azaad Rekhi was born on May 14th. Since we arrived early, our little miracle has been cared for by tireless nurses and doctors in the neonatal ICU ever since.
Sudden appendectomy during my pregnancy and a subsequent and very serious bacterial infection could have led to sepsis and proved to be life-threatening. Fortunately, the timely care and intervention of our doctor ensured the safe birth of our baby via emergency caesarean section.
As we look at this little being, this Zen master full of awe and wonder, we learn from him, in all humility, the true meaning of faith in the universe and of parenthood. And not to be afraid, and so we humbly lead the way out of his resilience and courage. We don’t have enough words to thank everyone who continues to help us live this story of hope and faith and create a safe, healing, nurturing space for Avyaan and me. He will be home soon and his older sister Samaira and grandparents are waiting to hold him in their arms.
I just want to say to our benefactors and fans: your concern has always meant a lot to me and if it had been possible to share this news sooner, we would have done it. Thank you all for all the love, light, faith and prayers. We extend them to anyone who is currently struggling to hold onto hope or pray for a loved one.
We see you, we hear you and together we pass this time.”
