Aishwarya Rai – Abhishek Bachchan’s baby IS ‘Aaradhya’

At last Amitabh Bachchan puts to rest the endless theories about the name of the newest Bachchan and announces it on Twitter

In response to a curious fan’s eagerness to know the name of Abhishek Bachchan and Aishwarya Rai’s first child, the patriarch of the family finally revealed in a tweet: “My granddaughter is called Aaradhya”.

A fan asked Big B on Twitter: “@SrBachchan sir (Amitabh Bachchan) want to see your lovely grand daughter…would really appreciate your reply with her name. Would love to know that. Thank You.”

If you remember, ever since Bollywood’s power couple Abhi-Ash’s first child Beti B arrived – on November 16 last year – there has been non-stop speculation over the baby’s name. But the Bachchans choose to be tight-lipped about it, like they always are on most things.

Last week we told you that in an interview to a newspaper the youngest Bachchan’s daddy Abhishek casually mentioned his tiny tot’s name not once, but three times. Though we wondered if the Bol Bachchan actor had actually said ‘Aaradhya’ or the interviewer took artistic liberties and added the name in the copy, we had our eagle eyes out for more.

Now we wait to get a glimpse of Aaradhya Bachchan. We wouldn’t be surprised if the little one will be casually introduced to the world, just like the name was revealed. Will she be seen on the red carpet at the Cannes International Film festival? We wait to find out….
