“Many morphed pictures of the ‘little one’ with her mother in hospital doing the rounds on the net... all fake!!” - Amitabh posted on his Twitter page.

“To be my daughter in her mother’s arms. Full points for creativity to the people who made them. Spent the morning with the girls and showing them some rather entertaining photos morphed by some very talented people...” Abhishek wrote.

Thanking the media for their restraint, Bachchan senior tweeted: “And once again a word of kindness to the electronic media for their non interference and dignified distance... thank you!!

“A word of appreciation too, to the print media for highlighting a few salient points... our joy in welcoming the girl child... and emphasising the commendable desire of Aishwarya in having a normal delivery without any epidural or pain killers” he added.

The 69-year-grandfather is already receiving suggestions for baby names, though Abhishek has chosen to nickname her ‘Beti B’.
