Malayalam actors Dileep and Kavya Madhavan welcome their daughter on Friday, October 19, 2018. Dileep took to his social media account to announce the birth of his daughter. The post is in Malayalam and its translation reads: We are blessed with a baby girl on this victory day. Both mother and child are doing fine. With Love from Kavya and Dileep. Reportedly, Kavya was hospitalized last night (October 18) in a private hospital in Kerala and the news of her delivering a baby girl broke earlier today.

Dileep and Kavya got married in 2016 in Kochi in the presence of their family and friends. There were rumours of their alleged affair which made its way to social media. Earlier this year, it was announced that the two are expecting their first child. This is Dileep’s second marriage after he parted ways from his first wife and actor Manju Warrier. Dileep has a daughter from his first wife Manju and she is currently living with the actor.

She celebrated the impending arrival of her child with family and close friends. Dileep, who was shooting in Alappuzha, took a break from the shooting and drove back home to be with his wife for the double celebration.

Dileep was into headlines after the Association of Malayalam Movie Artists (AMMA) decided to reinstate him. The association’s decision took the industry by storm and received flak from several actors. As reported, actress Rima Kallingal, Remya Nambeesan, Geethu Mohandas has quit AMMA following after the decision. Dileep was also arrested last year by Kerala police for hatching a plan to kidnap and molest the Malayalam actress. He was in Aluva jail for almost three months before coming out on bail. He is still battling the case in Kerala High Court.

On the professional front, Dileep was last seen in the period drama film Kammara Sambhavan opposite Tamil actor Siddharth.
