Dia Mirza on challenges she faced during pregnancy: ‘Sudden appendectomy, severe bacterial infection

With grace, poise and dignity, actor Dia Mirza has managed to overcome the innumerable curveballs that life has thrown her way. Today, she announced the news of her son Avyaan Azaad Rekhi, who was born prematurely. She revealed that he was born on May 14, and has been in the neo-natal ICU since then.

It clearly hasn’t been an easy time for her, as she had undergone an appendectomy during her pregnancy followed by a subsequent severe bacterial infection. “A sudden appendectomy during my pregnancy and a subsequent and very severe bacterial infection could have led to sepsis and proven to be life threatening. Thankfully, the timely care and intervention by our doctor ensured the safe birth of our baby via an emergency C-section,” Dia wrote.

Yet, this isn’t the first time that Dia Mirza has exuded such quiet dignity during a turbulent phase.
