When Ranbir Kapoor-Alia Bhatt revealed baby Raha’s name on a Barcelona jersey
Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt revealed their baby girl Raha’s name in November. Ranbir, an ardent Barcelona loyal, had his daughter Raha’s name printed on the back of a Barcelona kit framed on the wall. The picture shared by Alia shows herself and Ranbir holding their daughter, and the framed ‘Raha’ poster on the wall, in the background.
Sharing the meaning behind her name, they wrote, “The name Raha (chosen by her wise and wonderful Dadi) has so many beautiful meanings…Raha, in its purest form means divine path. In Swahili she is Joy, in Sanskrit, Raha is a clan, in Bangla – rest, comfort, relief, in Arabic peace, it also means happiness, freedom & bliss. And true to her name, from the first moment we held her – we felt it ALL! Thank you Raha, for bringing our family to life, it feels as though our lives have only just begun..”
Barcelona responded to Alia and Ranbir’s announcement, and tweeted, “Congratulations, @aliaa08 & Ranbir Kapoor!! A new Barça fan is born . We can’t wait to meet you all in Barcelona.”
