Aishwarya was admitted to Seven Hills Hospital for the last few days in preparation of the child birth. It is reported that the security in the Hospital is beefed up.

Best wishes and congratulation has started to pour in to the Bachchan family after the news of childbirth spread.

Back in June we suspected Aishwarya might be pregnant, based on her dress preference and bodily changes. The suspicion turned out to be true when Amitabh announced about him being a grandfather.

I would like to offer my congratulation to the Bachchan Family. I also wish the mother and child will get over the childbirth trauma soon.
