Celebrity moms wish Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and share a few tips on motherhood
Madhuri Dixit Nene, actor
Heartiest congratulations to Abhishek and Aishwarya. I wish both the mother and child all happiness and good health.
Farah Khan, director
Congrats to Aishwarya and Abhishek. It's a life changing experience; life really changes for the better.
Mum's tip: Don't listen to the tips people are giving, because nobody, but you will know what's best for your baby.
Raveena Tandon, actor
I am so happy it's a baby girl. I had a bet with Abhishek that it would be a girl. Ash and Abhi are one of the nicest couples around and genuinely care for each other, so this is a very lucky child.
Mum's tip: All I'd like to tell her is follow the mother's instinct and you wont have any issues bringing her up.
Shilpa Shirodkar, actor
I am very happy, especially for Amitji because I know he'll make a great granddad. Aishwarya has always made her family proud, this little girl I'm sure will do too.
Mum's tip: Your resting days are over. Get ready to welcome sleepless nights and endless diaper changing sessions.
Namrata Shirodkar Babu, actor
Heartiest congragulations to both Ash and Abhi from the bottom of my heart,
Mum's tip: The first two years is not an easy ride, but it's worth it. I am sure she is all set to take on the challenges that come with a child.
Tara Sharma, actor
Big congratulations to Aishwarya. Being a mother is the most amazing thing in the universe, though it may look like a very tough job.
Mum's tip: Enjoy the experience and the process of the child growing up.
Mini Mathur, TV show host
My heart warms up to see the nation welcoming a baby girl with so much love. Hope the country learns to give the same affection to all our tiny angels!!
