The first grandchild of the late Benazir Bhutto and former president Asif Ali Zardari was born on Oct 10.

Bakhtawar Bhutto Zardari and her husband Mahmood Choudhry have welcomed a baby boy!

The baby, according to Bakhtawar's official Twitter account, was born on October 10. On Instagram, she posted a picture of a neonatal care unit at a UAE hospital, indicating that the baby was born in the Gulf state. Reacting to the news, the new mother's siblings Bilawal and Aseefa welcomed their uncle and aunt titles with heart emojis.

PPP leaders, including Sherry Rehman and Saeed Ghani, congratulated the couple on the birth of their firstborn while #CongratulationsBibi started trending on Twitter with many sending good wishes to the new parents.

Bakhtawar and Dubai-based businessman Mahmood Choudhry were engaged on Nov 27, 2020 which saw the sprawling lawns at Bilawal House bedecked with flowers.

The daughter of former prime minister Benazir Bhutto and former president Asif Ali Zardari tied the knot earlier this year amid fanfare, albeit with Covid restrictions.

The pandemic, however, did not damper the public interest in the toned-down mehndi, nikah/rukhsati and the valima reception that unfolded behind the fortified walls of Bilawal House amid a strictly monitored and limited guest list.

Here's wishing the couple happy parenting and hoping they don't keep us in suspense about the name too long!
