"Thank you all for your prayers and good wishes. Both Aishwarya and the baby are doing great and taking some much needed rest," Abhishek posted on micro-blogging site Twitter.
Aishwarya gave birth to her first child Wednesday morning at a private hospital in Mumbai. Congratulatory messages for the parents, and grandparents – Amitabh and Jaya Bachchan, poured in soon after Abhishek announced ""IT’S A GIRL!!!!!! :-)))))" on micro-blogging Twitter.
He is so excited that he is unable to sleep.
"And I’m trying my level best to get rid of this caffeine high and get some sleep too. Don’t think it’ll work. TOO EXCITED!!!!" added the proud father, who always wished to have a daughter.
