‘I can’t take my eyes off the baby’

Hrithik Roshan has never been happier. “It feels wonderful,” he says. “I never thought fatherhood, the second time around, would be so special and exhilarating. I can’t take my eyes off the baby. He’s so beautiful!” Yesterday at 11.27 am, his wife Sussanne delivered a baby boy at Lilavati Hospital. The couple’s first-born, Hrehaan, is two years old. 



Bundle of joy 


The newborn weighs 3.3 kg and Hrithik was by Sussanne’s side during the delivery which was done by Dr Kiran Coelho. Any disappointment that the second child wasn’t a girl — as Hrithik wanted? “I did want a girl this time to complete the family picture. But the minute I saw my baby’s face I was as content as I could be. In fact, he has already had his first photo-session! The entire family (of about 35 people) except dad, is here. So we gathered around the baby and the photographer went click-click. He seemed to really enjoy it,” Hrithik chuckles happily. “All of us are at the hospital. Only dad is missing. He’s in Santa Fe, USA, hunting locations for our next production, Kites. But we just emailed him a picture of the baby.” And what’s the baby going to be called? “Right now, we haven’t thought of a name. We’re just so happy to see him healthy and happy. Sussanne will be home in a day or two.”



What family members say 



I am ecstatic at the birth of my grandchild but am missing my husband (Rakesh Roshan) who is in the US. I wish he was here. The baby is such a doll. He’s my third grandchild but each time, it’s a very different experience. I am still absorbing the fact I have become a daadi again. My husband will see the baby two weeks later — on May 15 when he returns.

Hrithik and Sussanne have been blessed with a drop-dead gorgeous baby boy. We haven’t named him as yet. It was a normal delivery and both mother and baby are doing fine. The baby is very fair and has straight jet-black hair. Both Hrithik and our parents (Sanjay and Zarine Khan) are very excited. Barring Rakesh uncle all of us were at the hospital — our parents, Zayed, me, Simone — everyone! We are happy we got a healthy baby. He’s one of the best-looking babies I have seen in my life. Now my parents have eight grandchildren — six grandsons and two granddaughters. I am thrilled that Hrithik’s baby is a Taurean, like my son Azaan and husband Aqueel. Also now that the baby was born on May Day, we can always celebrate his birthday on a holiday. 





I have become a bua once again. The baby looks like Hrehaan’s twin. The family wanted a daughter but we didn’t know whether it would be a boy or girl. As long as the baby is healthy nothing else matters to us.

Putting rest to all the ‘happy rumours’ of delivering twins, Sussanne Roshan gave birth to a healthy baby boy yesterday morning at 11.30. Hrithik who accompanied her right to the door of the delivery room, was seen beaming with pride. Not even his recent success with Jodhaa Akbar could have given him such a high. Sister-in-law Farah Ali Khan, who became spokesperson for the Roshans and Khans, said Hrithik was on top of the world. “One look at the baby and Hrithik said, ‘He looks so much like his brother, Hrehaan!’,” reported Farah. “He’s the most perfectly formed baby I have seen. Hrithik stayed with Sussanne all through.” Zayed and Malaika Khan, Sanjay and Zarine Khan, Simone, Rakesh, Pinky and Sunaina Khan were present at the hospital to celebrate with the couple. The new addition to the family weighed in at 3.5 kg. Mother and newborn son are fine. BT shares their joy and extends its congratulations to both families.
