The couple also shared the baby news with an adorable post on social media. Arpita Khan Sharma shared a photo (which has "Our little princess has arrived - Ayat Sharma" written on it) and captioned it, "Welcoming our daughter into the world. Grateful and overjoyed."

As per reports, Arpita wanted her baby to be born right on her brother Salman's birthday and hence she opted for a C-section delivery. Arpita was reportedly admitted to the hospital last night. This indeed is the best gift Salman has received on his 54th birthday as he turned mamu again. 

Proud father Aayush took to Instagram to announce the name of his daughter and wrote, "We've been blessed with a beautiful baby girl. Thank you so much for all the love and blessings for Ayat Sharma".
