Actor-comedian Kapil Sharma and his wife Ginni Chatrath recently welcomed their second child. An unseen picture from Ginni’s baby shower went viral on social media like wildfire. Kapil and Ginni, who also have a one-year-old daughter named Anayra, became proud parents to a baby boy on Monday morning.
In the picture, which is doing the rounds on social media, Ginni is seen posing on a couch with Anayra. The two are wearing matching lime green-coloured dresses. Ginni has a flower crown on her head and is seen holding a baby-shaped foil balloon.
Early Monday morning, Kapil took to Twitter to share the happy news of the birth of his son. “Namaskaar we are blessed with a Baby boy this early morning, by the grace of God Baby n Mother both r fine, thank you so much for all the love, blessings n prayers love you all ginni n kapil #gratitude”.
Wishes poured in from the entertainment industry. Actor Genelia D’Souza wrote, “Congratulations. Blessed with specialness again.” Actor Arjun Rampal tweeted, “@KapilSharmaK9 Congratulations bhai, best news. God bless the little bundle of joy and your family. Big love.” Others, including casting director-turned-filmmaker Mukesh Chhabra, actor-singer Meiyang Chang and singer Sukhbir, also congratulated Kapil and Ginni.
Last week, Kapil confirmed during an Ask Me Anything session on Twitter that Ginni was pregnant. He also revealed that his show, The Kapil Sharma Show, will go off air for the same reason. Responding to a fan’s question about the show, he said that he needs to ‘be there at home with my wife to welcome our second baby’.
Speculations are rife that Kapil will soon make his digital debut with a web series on Netflix. He recently shared the news with a funny video, which saw him struggling to pronounce the word ‘auspicious’. After several failed attempts, he recorded the message in Hindi and ended it by saying, “This was the auspicious news,” leaving his director stumped.
