Mumbai: Bollywood’s power couple Aamir Khan and Kiran Rao seems to be completely basking in the joy as they welcomed a baby boy born in their family recently. The media caught up with the star at an event and couldn’t help but ask as to he felt about the little one and Aamir quipped – “Fatherhood is the most exciting thing”.

The baby has been named Azad Rao Khan after Aamir’s great grand uncle and freedom fighter Maulana Azad.

“It is a great joy to be a father. Both Kiran and I are really overjoyed about the baby being born. It`s a real joy... it`s a miracle. A baby being born is like a miracle and nothing comes close to it,” Aamir said with his better-half Kiran by his side.

Aamir loves to play with the new-born.

“I tickle up his little toes and then snuggle him... since he is very small so he does not know who I am. But he knows that somebody comes and troubles him every day for two-three hours.”
“We can`t get enough of Azad. For the first time Kiran has stepped out of the house since the baby was born and we are keen on getting back home soon,” he said.
