If it's a girl, we hope she will be bear striking resemblance to her very gorgeous mother; if it's a boy, he would be a star - because the name will be Bachchan, and don't you know?- fame and beauty run in the blood.
To see a babe borne by a mother so vastly gifted in beauty and talent - an heir for the most influential family of Bollywood was, so far, a dream concocted by billions of fans of the Bachchan couple. A dream which is now on its way to being fulfilled. Tweet of the month award goes to this one from Big B, which has set off any and every tabloid in market dishing headlines!
"News News News!! I am going to be become a grandfather ... Aishwarya expecting .. So happy and thrilled !!!" Big B, wrote on his twitter account on Tuesday eve and soon after, Twitterland was abuzz with thousands of wishes for the expected baby and the family.
On Wednesday morning, Big B greeted his fans by acknowledging their good wishes and writing, "Overwhelmed with your wishes and blessings ... 2843 new tweets in half an hour. Thank You all."
This tweet was shortly followed by another tweet - borrowing elegant words of his father, the legendary literary figure of Hindi language, Shri Hariwansh Rai Bachchan, "Dhoot Nawal, Poot Nawal, Vansh Mein Vibhuti Nawal, my father's words from one of his works, says it all .. his legacy lives on."
Sure, being the Shahenshah of Bollywood doesn't make Big B any less a common man when it comes to celebrating the bliss of expected grandparent-hood! Here's a baby we know shall be oh-so-pampered!
