'It feels wonderful', says second time dad Hrithik
Mumbai, May 2 (IANS) Bollywood star Hrithik Roshan is over the moon at becoming father for the second time.
Wife Susanne delivered a baby boy Thursday. Weighing 3.3 kg, the baby was born at the Lilavati Hospital.
"It feels wonderful!" a jubilant Hrithik told IANS from the hospital. "I never thought fatherhood the second time would be so special, so exhilarating. I can't take my eyes off the baby… He is soooooooo beautiful!!"
Hrithik's voice brimmed over with paternal pride. Any disappointment for the fact that the second child wasn't a girl as Hrithik wanted?
"Earlier, before the baby came, I did want a girl this time, yes. To complete the family picture. But the minute I saw my new baby's face I was as content as I could be… In fact he has already had his first photo-session, ha ha. The entire family of about 35 people except my dad is here. So we all gathered around the baby and the photographer went click click click. He seemed to really enjoy it."
Another star from the Roshan family?
"Probably," Hrithik chuckled happily. "All of us are here at the hospital. Only my dad is missing. He's in Santa Fe (US) hunting locations for our film 'Kites'. But we just e-mailed him a picture of the baby."
And what's the baby going to be called?
"Right now we haven't thought of any particular name. We're just so happy to see him healthy and happy. Both mom and child are fine. Susanne will be home in a day or two."
This is the couple's second son. Their first son, Hrehaan, is two years old. Their mothers - Pinky Roshan and Zarine Khan - are ecstatic and making elaborate plans to welcome the baby to the Roshan House and then to the Khan villa in Juhu, a short distance away.
