After proudly announcing that it was a girl, Abhishek tweets, "Thank you all for your prayers and good wishes. Both Aishwarya and the baby are doing great and taking some much needed rest...." and "And I'm trying my level best to get rid of this caffeine high and get some sleep too. Don't think it'll work. TOO EXCITED!!!!"

Abhishek's father Amitabh was also tweeting about being a proud grandfather, then took time to thank the media for giving the family their privacy. He tweets, "As I travel back from the hospital I need to thank the media for keeping their word of not intruding our privacy. Deeply obliged!" and "We will give time to both electronic and print media .. PR will be setting up .. Have been up for more than 24 hours .. Need rest."

This is Aishwarya and Abhishek's first child. They have been married for over four years. Aishwarya, a former Miss World, is considered one of the most beautiful women in the world. This is the third grandchild for Amitabh Bachchan. His daughter Shweta has two children.
