Bollywood actors Ranbir Kapoor, and Alia Bhatt revealed the name of their baby daughter on Thursday in a social media post.
The baby girl has been named, Raha. The name has been selected by the grandmother, says Alia Bhatt in a social media post.
“Raha, in its purest form means divine path, in Swahili she is Joy, In Sanskrit, Raha is a clan, In Bangla – rest, comfort, relief, in Arabic peace, it also means happiness, freedom & bliss,” wrote Alia Bhatt in the Instagram post. “And true to her name, from the first moment we held her – we felt it ALL! Thank you Raha, for bringing our family to life, it feels as though our lives have only just begun,” she added further.
The couple announced the pregnancy back in June this year. Alia Bhatt shared the picture from the hospital where she was having her check-up. Ranbir Kapoor was also seen in the picture.
The Instagram post shows the couple watching the sonogram in the hospital with the screen blurred and a heart emoticon posted on it. The caption on the post of Alia Bhatt reads: “Our baby….. coming soon.”
