Bollywood actor Zayed Khan, 27, and his wife Mallika Khan, 27, welcomed their first child together. Son Zidaan Zayed Abbas Khan was born January 17 at 7:54 am, weighing in at 6 lbs, 1 oz, and was named after French footballer Zinedine Zidane.
We considered many names, but deep down I always wanted to name my son after Zidane, I am his great fan. It’s too early to decide who he looks like, but I think the baby is 50-50 Mallika and me. She’s given me the best gift so far. I cannot thank her enough.
He also expressed his joy over the birth of a son.
Oh my God! Have I become a father? I can’t believe it. I have never been so happy in my life. When I look at the baby, I cannot believe that he is a part of me!
Zayed plans on taking a break from his work schedule to be home with Mallika and Zidaan.
I heard it’s important to be with the baby in the initial stage. He should sense and feel my smell, touch and more importantly my love and bonding. [On being a young father:] Others can be parents to my son, I will play with him, he will be my best friend.
Zayed and Mallika were married in November 2005.
