Sanjay Dutt and wife Maanyata Thursday became parents of a baby boy and a girl at the Breach Candy Hospital. Maanyata gave birth to twins between 12:30 p.m. and 1:30 p.m.
Ameesha Patel, who is a close friend of both Sanjay and Maanyata, expressed her happiness on microblogging site Twitter: ‘At the hospital. Maanyata just delivered. One boy one girl. Congrats to Sanju and maana. Sooo happy for them.’
Sanju was on a trip to Dubai, he immediately flew back to Mumbai to be with his family. The star spent an hour at the hospital as soon as he landed, from 9.30 to 10.30pm before doctors requested him to leave his wife alone as the babies were born two weeks premature.
Keeping this in mind and considering Manyata’s health, who was feeling a little restless and uncomfortable, she was advised against meeting anybody for a long period of time, including Sanju.
Suniel Shetty and many other friends and well-wishers came to the venue to congratulate the couple.
