The same report quotes Bharat as saying, "It's hard to express how happy I feel today! I think the baby looks like me and when she smiles, the world smiles at you. Esha wants some 'me time' with our baby. Their bonding is divine!"

The same report states that while the couple has already finalised the name of their daughter, they will reveal it only during the naming ceremony of the child.

This is Hema's second grandchild as her other daughter, Ahana Deol, gave birth to a baby boy named Darien, two years ago. Five years after Esha tied the knot with Bharat in 2012, Hema broke the news on Twitter in April earlier this year that Esha is pregnant with her first child.

The baby girl's birth comes days after Malini's 69th birthday, and the launch of her biography Beyond The Dream Girl, on 16 October.
