Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai fame Karan Mehra and wife Nisha Rawal were blessed with a baby boy a week ago. The lovely couple was very excited to welcome this bundle of joy into their lives. Overjoyed Karan also took to Instagram to post a picture of his son’s tiny feet and captioned it, “The littlest feet make the biggest footprints in our hearts, this is something that cannot be expressed in just words. We are ready for this new journey with our little blessing that has arrived in the form of a beautiful baby boy.”

Karan, who is thrilled about his journey as a father shared his excitement with Telly Chakkar in a candid conversation, he said, “Still sinking in that I have become a dad and Nisha has become a mother, it’s a great feeling though. People in our family who are older than us have been pushed a generation up by becoming grandparents and they are quite happy about it.”

“We thank God for everything, the mother and the baby are in good health. He is kicking around and has filled our lives with joy and we are very fortunate to have him,” added Karan. (ALSO READ: Karan Mehra’s wife Nisha Rawal’s emotional letter is a must read!)

Karan is quite active on social media. He kept his fans updated on everything right from the happily married pictures to Nisha’s pregnancy by uploading a picture of him and Nisha who is resting her hands on her baby bump to the birth of the child.

The actor who loves talking about his son said that it is too soon to tell who he resembles the most. He said, “Everybody in our family is saying different things. Some are saying, he looks like me and some say, he looks like Nisha. So, everyone in our family is a little biased about it (laughs). I felt that he looks a bit like me while I was going through my childhood pictures but he looks a bit like Nisha too; he is a mixture of both of us. We will have to wait for him to grow up to see whom he resembles the most.”

Karan’s fans, who follow him on Instagram, are updated with his personal and professional life. When Nisha gave birth to her child, Karan informed his fans through social media, after which he was showered with blessings and received lots of love and wishes from them. The overwhelmed Karan who owed thanks to all his well-wishers but was caught up with the welcoming of this God’s gift, said, “They have been so lovely. I have not been able to attend calls from past few days but I have been flooded with messages and wishes on my phone, Facebook, Instagram and everywhere. It’s very sweet of fans to make a fan page for the little one and I am very fortunate to have them. They all were so excited and I think they can’t wait to see to him in near future. Let’s see when that happens.
