Mumbai: Amidst speculation of Aishwarya Rai opting for C-section delivery, comes the news that the actress actually had a normal delivery.

Ash’s father in law, actor Amitabh Bachchan took to Twitter to clarify all the rumours. Bachchan tweeted, “Emphasizing the commendable desire of Aishwarya in having a normal delivery without any epidural or pain killers. The often coined phrase ` too posh to push` was put to rest in her case .. she was determined to do it the way she felt was correct !(sic)”

The actor also stated that the pictures of Ash and her baby that are doing the rounds on the internet are all fake. “Many morphed pictures of the `little one` and with her and her Mother in hospital doing the rounds on the net .. all fake .. !!(sic)”

Big B also thanked the media for giving the family its space during the birth of the junior-most Bachchan. He said, “And once again a word of kindness to the electronic media for their non interference and dignified distance .. thank you !! A word of appreciation too, to the print media for highlighting a few salient points .. our joy in welcoming the girl child(sic).”

When a fan pointed out that Shweta Nanda’s children were also part of the Bachchan lineage, Big B said, “they are `lineage` .. but they were born Nanda, not Bachchan(sic).”

Aishwarya Rai and Abhishek Bachchan became proud parents of a baby girl on November 16.
