On Monday, Bakhtawar surprised her followers by announcing that she and her husband Mahmood Choudhry had welcomed a boy. Her tweet was followed by her siblings, Bilawal and Aseefa, expressing delight at becoming “mamoo” and “khala”, respectively.
Then a day later, Bakhtawar shared a photo from the hospital which led to speculation that she gave birth to her son in Dubai.
“[He is] currently in the NICU [neonatal intensive care unit] but getting stronger everyday,” said Bakhtawar. “Do keep him in your prayers.”
Bakhtawar is the second child of the late former prime minister Benazir Bhutto and former president Asif Ali Zardari. She was married to Mahmood Choudhry at Bilawal House on January 29, 2021.
