Today, a week after her delivery of baby Bachchan, Aishwarya Rai was discharged from the Seven Hills hospital in Marol, Mumbai. She was admitted there since November 14. Aishwarya delivered her bundle of joy on November 16.
This was the first public appearance of the baby girl fondly called ‘Beti B’. she left for her real home, Jalsa, amid a huge crowd gathered outside the hospital to catch a glimpse of the blue-eyed baby. But of course, that was not to be, as she was enveloped in a pink blanket in her proud grandfather Amitabh Bachchan’s arms, safe from every prying eye.
The family had also refused to release any photograph of the newly born baby.
Abhishek Bachchan apparently didn’t trust the family driver to escort his new little family home because the doting dad took the wheel himself
The baby Bachchan drove home, first to Prateeksha on 10th Road, Juhu, and then to the Bachchans’ current abode, Jalsa, also in Juhu, in nothing less than a Rolls Royce and a posse of cars behind them, containing their security guards and other staff.
“Goddess Lakshmi has come to our family and we have brought Lakshmi ratna home. We took her to Prateeksha first because that is our first home. We took my father’s blessings and then came to Jalsa” said Amitabh Bachchan, while addressing the media for the first after the birth of his granddaughter.
When asked about the excitement in the family owing to the newborn, Amitabh said that everyone is very happy and excited.
“We are happy to have a baby girl. Abhishek and Jaya got what they wanted,” he added.
The next big announcement after the much-awaited little Bachchan’s arrival will be her name. Given that Bachchan grandkids have traditional names – Navya Naveli and Agastya – Shweta Bachchan–Nanda’s children, the world can’t wait to hear what Aishwarya and Abhishek name their precious daughter.
