First Bachchan in this generation, over Aishwarya's pregnancy
Aishwarya Rai Bachchan is pregnant, Big B tweeted on Tuesday. MUMBAI: Amitabh Bachchan is on top of the world. The actor, who tweeted about his daughter-in-law Aishwarya Rai Bachchan's pregnancy, wrote on his blog around midnight: "And so to becoming a Dada ! The excitement and the joy of the first Bachchan coming after my brother and me. Nana I was, but now Dada !! The doctors just confirmed it this evening and I have shared it immediately with the EF and on Twitter after informing all the family, now spread out in various parts of the world .."
The actor has been flooded with good wishes. He wrote, "Thank you all so much for all the blessings and greetings and the good wishes .. yeh sach hai ki pota Dada ke liye uska bachpan lekar aata hai .. wrote a well wisher .. 'it is true that a grandchild brings along with it the child in the grandfather' ... and I could not agree more with this. On many an occasion we reminisce that the time we lost in not being as much as we wanted to with our children, could somehow be compensated. Well, this is that moment of compensation. To be a child again, to pamper and give love and company and all things bright and beautiful to the little one that shall take over all our attention in the days to come."
Talking about the Bachchan legacy, the Big B further wrote, "the legacy of my Father lives on. My Father and my Mother brought forth two sons - Amitabh and Ajitabh ... Amitabh had two Shweta and Abhishek. Ajitabh had four, Nilima, Namrata, Naina and Bhim. My brothers children are yet to be married. My daughter is and has two of her own Navya and Agastya, whose Nana I am ... and now cometh the progeny of my son that shall bear the surname Bachchan - the first in this generation."
