We are officially bursting with love – blessed and obsessed Parents!!! love love love Alia and Ranbir.” The new parents have finally announced the daughter’s name.
The actress announced the significance of the baby’s name, Raha, on her social media accounts, along with the first glimpse of their newborn baby. Alia shared the first family photo in her post and stated, “The name Raha (chosen by her wise and wonderful Dadi) has so many beautiful meanings…
Raha, in its purest form, means divine path
in Swahili, she is Joy,
In Sanskrit, Raha is a clan,
In Bangla – rest, comfort,
In Arabic peace,
it also means happiness, freedom & bliss.
And true to her name, from the first moment we held her – we felt it ALL!
Thank you, Raha, for bringing our family to life; it feels like our lives have just begun.”
Many Bollywood stars, including Sophie Choudhry, Anushka Ranjan, Zoya Akhtar, Athiya Shetty, and others, send love in the comments section for the new parents. Kareena Kapoor Khan said, “Raha Kapoor can I hold you can’t wait.” Commented by Shashank Khaitan, “Raha… beautiful.” Red heart emojis were dropped by Soni Razdan, Sonam Kapoor, Riddhima Kapoor Sahn, Shweta Bachchan, Dia Mirza, Sonakshi Sinha, and Anushka Sharma.
In June of this year, the couple made their pregnancy official. This year, Alia and Ranbir exchanged vows with a few family members and close friends at their home in Vastu, Mumbai.
