December 11, 2013 when the clock struck 05:33PM in a London hospital, life changed for Fardeen Khan and his wife Natasha. They have been longing for a baby for quite some time now. Their bundle of joy Diani Isabella Khan entered their world.
And it’s been almost three days, but Fardeen Khan has not stopped smiling and crying at the same time.
Fardeen, who was present during the delivery, describes it as an awesome, life changing experience. He was overwhelmed when he first laid eyes on his daughter.
“It stuns you, shocks you. Your eyes fill up and so does your heart, with pure love and joy,” says an ecstatic, proud and emotional Fardeen Khan.
Natasha, Fardeen’s wife has been in London from the past two years for her treatment and Fardeen has been shuttling between London and Mumbai. Natasha has had a tragic miscarriage of twin baby boys almost a year ago and has gone through a lot of pain both mental as well as physical to finally see this day. Natasha along with Diani will be back home by the weekend and Fardeen has made sure that everything is in place to welcome the baby home in London. Fardeen plans to get her back to India once she is done with her vaccinations and it’s safe to travel for her.
Fadeen’s Mother Sundari Khan is also in London to welcome her grandchild. As far as Natasha’s parents go, Mayur Madhwani and Mumtaz live in London.
“I wish my father (Feroz Khan) had been here too. He is greatly missed but I know that whatever joy comes into my life is because of his blessings. I’m a part of him and my daughter is a part of me. I’m gearing up for the life-long responsibility of bringing her up well. Also we were aware that we were going to have a daughter, which is how we had the name ready. Diani is Portuguese for Divinity and Isabella is a name I have always loved. My daughter will always be Isabella for me. As for her, we’ve given her two names, she can choose what she wants,” concludes Fardeen.
Fardeen Khan and Natasha have been through the worst to have their baby, and today both of them deserve all the happiness in the world. Congratulations, Mr and Mrs Khan!
