Baar Baar Dekho‘ director Nitya Mehra is over the moon as she welcomed her first child into the world last Monday. The filmmaker married Karan Kapadia in the year 2015. The couple just can’t get enough of their little Baby boy.

Interestingly Nitya kept the news of her pregnancy away from the media glare. And it was only recently when Nitya shared a picture of flaunting her baby bump on her Instagram handle that everyone came to know she is expecting.

As per a report in Mumbai Mirror, Nitya welcomed her baby boy in a suburban hospital in Mumbai. Nitya shares a great bond with Ranveer Singh. So as soon as Ranveer came to know about her delivery, he visited the filmmaker in the hospital along with wifey Deepika Padukone. The couple spent quality time with the new mother and her cute little son.

Her debut film ‘Baar Baar Dekho’ starred Sidharth Malhotra and Katrina Kaif in the lead role. However, the film failed to live up to everyone’s expectations.

Now we are looking forward to seeing her baby’s adorable pictures. Hope she shares some on her social media handle.
