Alia Bhatt and Ranbir Kapoor have named their newborn daughter Raha. On Thursday evening, the actress shared an announcement along with a first glimpse of the baby.
Alia Bhatt took to her social media handle to share a family photo. In it, she can be seen out of focus along with her actor-husband Ranbir Kapoor as they cradle their daughter. In the backdrop, a jersey with “Raha” printed on it can be seen. Alia captioned the post, “The name Raha (chosen by her wise and wonderful Dadi) has so many beautiful meanings…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. 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.”

We are officially bursting with love – blessed and obsessed Parents! Love, love, love Alia and Ranbir.”
