“Avyaan, you have taught us humility, grace, and power"
The Indian model and actress, Dia Mirza shared another picture of her baby son Avyaan via Instagram on September 17, 2021.

In the Instagram caption, Dia thanked the doctors and medical staff who looked after her and Avyaan:
“We are deeply grateful to many good people who took very good care of you Avyaan in the first 4 months of your life.
“Dr Hari, Dr Jui, Dr Pradeep, Dr Anish and all the nurses and @suryahospitals under the able leadership of Dr Awasthi and Dr Kabra.
“We will be forever grateful for the care and love you received from all of them.”
Dia also shared a message for her son:
“Avyaan, you have taught us humility, grace, and power of prayer. Stay blessed baby. You complete us in every way.
“All our family and friends this time would not have been half as comforting without your strength and prayers. Thank YOU all. You know who you are.
“Have to add, to all the parents out there who are coping with their premies being in NICU, love, strength and prayers for you and your little ones.”
Celebrities and netizens alike reacted to the picture. Priyanka Chopra, Dia’s close friend, commented on the post:
“God bless your beautiful family Dee.”

“Welcome home baby Avyaan, god bless you… lots of love Dee to you and your family.”
