Aishwarya Rai Bachchan has checked in to the Seven Hills Hospital for delivery in the early hours of Monday morning, sources say.
There has been no official word from the Bachchan family as yet. Aishwarya`s father-in-law and legendary actor Amitabh Bachchan tweeted a few hours ago: “A day of expectation … but another day! The Lord has his ways and they are most special.. we wait !!”
This weekend, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan was “up and about” as her husband Abhishek Bachchan`s tweet in response to a fan`s query, says.
She paid another visit to the Seven Hills Hospital for a check-up on Saturday night. She was accompanied by members of her family, including Abhishek and sister-in-law Shweta Bachchan Nanda.
Meanwhile, preparations are on in full swing at the Bachchan home for the arrival of Baby B.
“The family gathers together from all over as we wait for the ‘arrival’. Greatest joy for me – a full house and the `chahel – pahel`” says a tweet from Aishwarya`s father-in-law, the legendary Amitabh Bachchan.
But the preparations to welcome Baby B did not deter Mr Bachchan from watching Imtiaz Ali`s Rockstar on Sunday. “Its late but not without cause. Just back from `RockStar` and living in the brilliance of all – Imtiaz Ali, Ranbir, AR and Nargis,” he tweeted.
Mr Bachchan, who is very active on Twitter, followed up with another tweet praising Rockstar. In the same breath he tweeted on taking time off to wait for his soon-to-be-born grandchild. ” Still with RockStar and its beauty ..and now to be with family and its joys .. some of the pleasures of vacant schedules ..rare !!
Excitement over soon-to-be-born Baby B reached a head on 11.11.11, especially when Aishwarya was spotted at the hospital on the eve of 11.11.11. Many felt the Bachchan bahu was being admitted for delivery. However, a reported statement from her spokesperson on social sites categorically denied that she was indeed admitted. She was apparently at the hospital for a check-up and left after that.
