Arpita Khan and Aayush Sharma were blessed with a baby girl on Friday. Aayush took to Instagram and announced the arrival of the couple's second child, Ayat Sharma. His post read, "We’ve been blessed with a beautiful baby girl. Thank you so much for all the love and blessings for Ayat Sharma."

The happy family also shared a statement that read:

"With great joy and immense pleasure, we announce that we have been blessed with a baby girl. On this joyous occasion, we would like to thank our family, friends and all our well-wishers for their unconditional support. We also extended a humble thank you to our media friends and to our fans for their constant love and support. This journey couldn’t have been complete without you all.

Lots of Love,

Khan's & Sharma's"

This makes for a double celebration in the Khan-daan as the day also happens to be Arpita's brother and superstar Salman Khan's 54th birthday. The couple has a three-year-old son, Ahil.

Salman thanked Arpita and Ayush for giving "best birthday gift for the whole family". He tweeted, "Welcome to this beautiful world Ayat. Thank u Arpita n Ayush for the best birthday gift for the whole family. May everyone who reads this bless her n may she grow up n make everyone proud. Thank u for all the love n respect. You all have been very kind, thank u thank u thank u!"

While coming out of Hinduja Hospital in Mumbai, Aayush Sharma told the paparazzi, "It's a baby girl." Salman's brother-in-law Atul Agnihotri and stepmom Helen were also spotted outside the hospital.

Stars like Varun Dhawan, Badshah, Manish Malhotra, Mouni Roy, Shabir Ahluwalia, Sonal Chauhan, Varun Sharma, Isabelle Kaif, Nupur Sanon, Angad Bedi and others also wished the family on social media.
