Bollywood actress Rani Mukerji and film-maker husband Aditya Chopra recently welcomed their first child, a baby girl, who they have named, Adira.

The Famous Bollywood actress Rani Mukerji has recently given birth to a baby girl on Wednesday, the 9th December. Rani Mukerji is married to Yash Raj Films (YRF) head Aditya Chopra and the couple has named their daughter Adira, which is an amalgamation of their names.

Adira was born one month before it was predicted to happen and is "healthy and feisty". She was born at the Breach Candy Hospital, in Mumbai.

Yash Raj Films, headed by Aditya, made the announcement on their official Twitter account. "Rani Mukerji and Aditya Chopra become proud parents to a baby girl named 'Adira'," the post read.

The 37-year-old actress thanked her fans, friends and well-wishers for their “unconditional support and blessings”. The actress said, “We thank fans our friends and well-wishers for their unconditional support and blessings. With joy we begin this new chapter in our lives.”

Rani and Aditya Chopra, who had for long been in a relationship, tied the knot secretly in April last year in Italy.  It's the first marriage for Rani, but Aditya was married to childhood friend Payal Khanna, whom he divorced in 2009.

Rani had friends and family at the Breach Candy hospital and one such special friend was Shah Rukh Khan's wife Gauri.

The new parents Rani and Aditya are apparently planning a 'Mahapooja' for the little baby and the family has also started preparing for the same.
