The Bachchan baby bump watch has officially come to a close, as Abhishek Bachchan announced via Twitter that wife Aishwarya Rai Bachchan welcomed a baby girl on Wednesday. The proud papa tweeted “IT’S A GIRL!!!!!! :-) ))))”, following a day full of speculation around Aishwarya’s delivery and false reports that she had earlier delivered twin boys.

Leading up to the big moment, the media had been gracious in allowing the Bachchans their privacy during Aishwarya’s pregnancy. However, despite specific guidelines from father-in-law Amitabh Bachchan clearly stating there were to be no stories, interviews or camera crews involved, tongues started wagging once Aishwarya was admitted to Seven Hills Hospital in Andheri, Mumbai.

Abhishek also tweeted not too long ago that his grandfather had named him, and how he would like the honor of naming their child to go to Senior Bachchan. The Big B also tweeted his excitement about becoming a dadaji. Time will only tell what the golden Bachchan guriya will be named.

Now it’s time to eagerly look forward to how gorgeous this baby girl will grow up to be (and her inevitable Bollywood launch in circa 20 years). Also, let the countdown to leaked Bachchan baby photos begin!
