Popular actress Dia Mirza, who is known among Tamil cinema fans for playing Reema Sen's role in the Hindi version of Minnale titled Rehnaa Hai Terre Dil Mein, posted a photo of her newborn son Avyaan for the first time on Thursday. Taking to Instagram, Dia, on the occasion of World Elephant Day, shared the photo of Avyaan in a white onesie which has a picture of an elephant along with the caption, "We are celebrating #WorldElephantDay." Check it out below: 

Earlier in the day, Dia posted a picture of herself with a few baby elephants and captioned the photo, "I will never forget the first time i met these beautiful rescued elephant calves. They were so playful and naughty! Kept opening my shoe laces with their trunks. The time spent with them had me smiling and bursting with love and joy. Let’s celebrate these incredible sentient beings today and every day. On this World Elephant Day pledge your support to protect and secure the #RightOfPassage to save our elephants." 

Dia Mirza welcomed her first child with her husband Vaibhav Rekhi on May 14. The couple, however, took time till July to drop the news that their son Avyaan was born premature. Posting a picture of the newborn's hand in hers, the Sanju actress wrote, "To paraphrase Elizabeth Stone, 'To have a child is to decide forever to have your heart go walking around outside your body.' These words perfectly exemplify Vaibhav & my feelings right now. Our heartbeat, our son Avyaan Azaad Rekhi was born on May 14th. Having arrived early, our little miracle has since then been cared for by tireless nurses and doctors in the Neonatal ICU." She added, "A sudden appendectomy during my pregnancy and a subsequent and very severe bacterial infection could have led to sepsis and proven to be life threatening. Thankfully, the timely care and intervention by our doctor ensured the safe birth of our baby via an emergency C-section." 

Extending her gratitude towards her well-wishers, family members and fans, Dia said, "To our well-wishers and fans, I just want to say - your concern has always meant a lot to me and if it was possible to share this news before, we would have. Thank you all for all the love, light, faith and prayers. We extend them back to everyone who is struggling to hold on to hope right now or is praying for a loved one. We see you, we hear you and together, we will get past this time. —Dia & Vaibhav."
