Mumbai: Bollywood star Akshay Kumar`s happiness knew no bounds when he took his newborn daughter in his arms for the first time.

His wife Twinkle gave birth to their second child, a daughter, here Tuesday morning.

"There is no greater feeling in life than holding your baby for the first time. I wish I could express more about how HAPPY I am right now, but I`m at a loss of words," tweeted Akshay Wednesday.
