Esha Deol and her husband Bharat Takhtani have become proud parents of a baby girl. Esha, daughter of Bollywood actors Dharmendra and Hema Malini, gave birth to her first child in the wee hours of Monday at Hinduja Hospital, Mumbai.
An elated Bharat said, “I am very happy. I can’t even express how happy I am today. I think the baby looks like me, when she smiles it seems the world smiles at you. This is a different feeling, which cannot be expressed in words.” Esha and Bharat have already decided the name of the child, but they will officially announce it on the day of naming ceremony. Esha and Bharat had already designed the nursery for their kid with the help of interior designer Noorein Jumani.
In an official statement Hema Malini’s biographer Ram Kamal Mukherjee of ‘Beyond The Dream Girl’ informed, “Hemaji was extremely delighted to welcome ‘Goddess Laxmi’ immediately after Diwali.”
“Hemaji had put all her work commitments on hold for Esha, she wanted to be with her daughter during the delivery. She has been constantly at home, taking care of Esha,” he added. Esha’s sister Ahana and her husband Vaibhav Vohra were also present at the hospital during Esha’s delivery, apart from their parents and Bharat’s entire family.

Esha announced her pregnancy earlier this year in April. With the arrival of Esha’s little bundle of joy, Hema Malini becomes grandmother for the second time, two years after her younger daughter, Ahana, welcomed her first child. Ahana and Vaibhav are parents to a baby boy, whom the couple has named Darien.
Esha had made her last public appearance in her pregnancy avatar at Hema Malini’s biography launch, where she had spoken on her ‘uncensored’ interview to Ram Kamal about her journey from being a star kid to motherhood. Jokingly she stated in the biography that, “Now that you have made me speak about my entire life, I will have no secrets to hide from my baby.”
During Esha’s pregnancy, she went on a babymoon to Greece with husband, Bharat. The couple shared some lovely pictures from their trip on Instagram as well.

The couple celebrated their baby shower by tying the knot again as per Sindhi tradition. Esha was dressed like a bride for the occasion.
Esha Deol and Bharat Takhtani, a businessman, got engaged in February 2012 after dating for a couple of years. The pair tied the knot in June 2012.
On the work front, Esha Deol has been away from the big screen since 2015. She was last seen in multi-lingual drama film, Kill Them Young (2015).
Here’s wishing Esha Deol and Bharat Takhtani, a happy parenthood!
