Dia Mirza has shared a special photo on her Instagram handle on the occasion of World Elephant Day. On Thursday, Dia treated her fans with a picture of her newborn baby boy Avyaan after keeping the baby away from social media for months.
Dia shared a selfie with a soft smile and her hand on the cheek. It was followed by the picture of Avyaan dressed in a cute white onesie with elephant prints on it. She captioned the photo as “We are celebrating #WorldElephantDay”.
Dia and her husband Vaibhav Rekhi welcomed their baby Avyaan on May 14. However, the couple waited till July to announce the news as their baby boy was born prematurely. Dia had shared a photo of his hand in hers and penned a long note. “To paraphrase Elizabeth Stone, ‘To have a child is to decide forever to have your heart go walking around outside your body.’ These words perfectly exemplify Vaibhav & my feelings right now. Our heartbeat, our son Avyaan Azaad Rekhi was born on May 14th. Having arrived early, our little miracle has since then been cared for by tireless nurses and doctors in the Neonatal ICU”, reads a part of the same.
On the occasion of World Elephant Day, Dia shared a picture featuring herself with some baby elephants and captioned, “I will never forget the first time i met these beautiful rescued elephant calves. They were so playful and naughty! Kept opening my shoe laces with their trunks. The time spent with them had me smiling and bursting with love and joy. Let’s celebrate these incredible sentient beings today and every day. On this World Elephant Day pledge your support to protect and secure the #RightOfPassage to save our elephants”.
