Television actor Jay Soni, who is known for his role in Star Plus' popular show Sasural Genda Phool, is on cloud nine these days as he welcomes his first child.
His wife Pooja Shah gave birth to a healthy baby girl on April 18 in Mumbai.
"Both mother and child are doing good and Jay is over the moon. He has always wanted a baby girl, and with his wish coming true, he is jumping like a kid. Pooja is currently in the hospital but they should arrive home soon after the regular check-ups and formalities," a source reportedly told Indian Express.
It is indeed a happy moment for the new parents and the proud father Jay can't stop gushing about the new member of the family.
“I am on cloud nine. I can’t even begin to explain how it feels. I was inside the operation theatre with Pooja and I am really proud of her. She was so strong throughout. When the doctor announced that it was a girl, both of us started screaming with joy. I didn’t even realise that I had tears when the baby looked at me for the first time. It was surreal,” he told TOI.
Jay further added, “My daughter was born on the auspicious occasion of Akshaya Tritiya. She is truly a blessing for us. My friends and relatives have been telling me that ‘Laxmi aayi hai on such an auspicious day.”
The couple hosted a grand baby shower for Pooja early in January and it was attended by several celebs from the television industry.
Jay Soni was last seen in Colors TV Bhaag Bakool Bhaag.
