Pakistani singer-songwriter Abdullah Qureshi and wife Sadia Subhan are now parents to a baby girl. In an Instagram post, the Dastaan and Laapata singer made the announcement along with an adorable picture of him holding his wife and daughter’s hands.
Fans and fellow celebrities were thrilled by the news, with congratulations and well wishes flooding the comment section. Strings drummer Aahad Nayani and model Rehmat Ajmal also expressed their delight.
The news comes just three days after Qureshi announced on social media that he had tested positive for Covid-19.
Earlier in 2020, Qureshi also released the song Daro Na, in collaboration with his celebrity and influencer friends. The song was intended to be a supportive anthem for the nation as we fought through the initial confusing and scary days of the pandemic. He also took the opportunity to pay his respects to our frontline health workers.
The chorus from the song is our advice to him as he fights the virus himself. The chorus goes: “Daro naa, ye din katt jaye ga. Larro na, kal phir se aye ga [Don't be scared, this day will also pass. Fight, tomorrow will come again].”
