“Welcoming our little bundle of joy Amaya Khan."
Pakistani actress Mariam Ansari and her husband Owais Khan recently announced the birth of their daughter Amaya Khan in a beautiful Instagram post.
She took to Instagram to share a series of black-and-white photos.
One picture showed Mariam holding a pair of baby shoes while another features Owais cradling her baby bump.
The third image showed the couple holding a scan of their baby.
Announcing the birth of their daughter, Mariam wrote:
“Welcoming our little bundle of joy Amaya Khan. Thank you for making our life complete. 04/07/2023.”
The caption ended with a prayer written in Arabic, which translates to giving thanks to God for His blessings.
The post was met with many messages of congratulations from fellow industry members who expressed their joy at the wonderful news.
Maryam Nafees wrote: “MashAllah! Bohat Bohat Mubarak [Many congratulations].”
Kinza Hashmi also commented: “Congratulations MashAllah!”
Fans of the couple also commented on the post, in which one said:
“MashAllah congratulations to the family.”

However, there were a few social media users who deemed Mariam’s post distasteful and shameful.

“Shame on you, now you openly flaunt your pregnant bellies.”
Another said: “Pakistan is ahead of all in the acts of shamelessness.”
