Pakistan’s very own grungy rockstar Ali Azmat and his wife television producer Fariha Khan have been blessed with a baby girl.
Late on Thusrday night, the couple welcomed their daughter who has been named Ella, which means torch or bright light.
The singer tweeted, “Ella is here” late on Thursday night. He married his long-time girlfriend in September last year. The news of his wedding came as a surprise to his fans who had presumed that the rockstar would never settle for something as serious as a full-time commitment. The rumours that Azmat vowed to stay a bachelor all his life, told female fans to keep no hopes.
But Azmat surprised us all when he finally tied the knot! The “Garaj Baras” singer is known for his sardonic wit and his politically charged comments and recently was seen tweeting for the release of Rimsha Masih. “Free Rimsha you dimwits,” the singer had posted last week, regarding a Christian girl who was jailed after being accused of blasphemy. Azmat’s friend, singer-cum-actor Ali Zafar congratulated Azmat on Twitter. “Beautiful name. Wonderful news. May the family have the most fantastic life ever” to which Azmat replied, “Thanks bro, it’s a brand new feeling altogether.” Congratulations to the couple!
