Esha Deol and husband Bharat Thaktani were blessed with a daughter early on Monday. Now, the proud parents have named their little baby girl – Radhya. Isn’t that the cutest name we have heard in a long time?
In an official statement, Esha’s team confirmed this news. “This is to officially confirm that Bollywood actress Esha Deol Takhtani and business magnet Bharat Takhtani decided to announce the name of their new born baby girl. Radhya is derived from Radha, which means to be worshipped,” read the statement.
An elated new father, Bharat expressed his joy and said, “We are very happy to announce that our daughter will be named as Radhya Takhtani. The name has been jointly decided by Esha and me.”
Grandparents Hema Malini, Dharmendra and Takhnanis are extremely happy with the ‘divine’ name. Takhtani’s will have a formal naming ceremony in a week’s time.
Esha and Bharat thanked friends and everyone for their love and blessings. “She has been showered with messages from film fraternity. She would like to thank all her fans on social media who wished and made beautiful creatives for Esha and Radhya,” added daddy Takhtani.
In an earlier interview, second time grandma, Hema Malini had said that she would like to teach Bharatnatyam to Esha’s kid, if she delivers a baby girl. She had said, “I am just waiting for Esha’s baby! I already have my little guardian (Ahaha’s son, Darien), he is a wonderful kid, my grandson! He is very fold of everybody in the family, but I like to believe that we both have a special bond. I like to make sure that kids have a little spiritual inclination. If Esha has a boy, I will have one more grandson, and she has a girl I will definitely teach her Bharatnatyam!” Seems like Hema Malini’s dream has come true!
Currently Esha is enjoying her time with baby Radhya and looking forward to becoming a hands-on mommy.
