Zayed Khan and his wife Mallika have welcomed a new baby boy into their family. Mallika gave birth to the couples first child yesterday at 7:54 am. The baby weighed in at a healthy 6.1 pounds.
Zayed said, “Oh my God! Have I become a father? I can’t believe it. I have never been so happy in my life. When I look at the baby, I cannot believe that he is a part of me! It’s too early to decide who he looks like, but I think the baby is 50-50 Mallika and me. She’s given me the best gift so far. I cannot thank her enough.”
The baby has been named Zidann Zayed Abbas Khan and Zayed says, “We considered many names, but deep down I always wanted to name my son after Zidane, I am his great fan.” Zinedine Zidane is a famous soccer player from France, hence the name Zidann.
Mallika’s sister, Farah Ali Khan, said, “Our parents (Sanjay and Zarine Khan) cannot express their joy in words. Zidaan is the seventh grandson in the family but more importantly, this is the first time that my parents are Dada and Dadi. You cannot imagine their happiness.”
The proud papa has taken a week off to be with his new beta and said; “I heard it’s important to be with the baby in the initial stage. He should sense and feel my smell, touch and more importantly my love and bonding.”
Adding, “Others can be parents to my son, I will play with him, he will be my best friend.”
We here at Bollyspice send congratulations to the new parents and wish them and little Zidann many blessings!
