‘We are celebrating World Elephant Day,’ says Dia Mirza sharing newborn son Avyaan’s first picture dressed in a cute elephant onesie


Dia Mirza took to Instagram to share a special picture with her fans. The picture was shared on the occasion of World Elephant Day today but gave a sneak peek of her newborn son Avyaan for the first time. The actress had welcomed her son with husband Vaibhav Rekhi on May 14. However, they waited until July to announce their son’s birth as he was born premature.

Dia took to Instagram stories and first shared a selfie, posing with her hand on her cheek and with a soft smile. The next photo showed Avyaan in a white onesie with elephant motif all over. "We are celebrating #WorldElephantDay," she wrote with the photo.

The time spent with them had me smiling and bursting with love and joy. Let’s celebrate these incredible sentient beings today and every day. On this World Elephant Day pledge your support to protect and secure the #RightOfPassage to save our elephants."
