New Delhi: Just few days back Imran Khan welcomed a baby girl in his family. 

Now as reported by a leading daily, Imran's wife found the name for her little angel, Imara.  The baby girl will be keeping surnames of both the parents and hence will be called as Imara Malik Khan.

‘Imara' means strong and resolute.  “I was a little hesitant about the name as it sounded like Imran and came off a little egocentric, but then we came to a point where we didn't like any other name and hence went forward with it.”, the new daddy said while talking to a leading daily.

He also added, “It feels different the second you see the baby. I just looked at Imara and I crumbled and fell. Had it been a boy, somewhere, I think I would've been okay. I looked at her and thought, ‘My life is over now. All my life, I will be on my knees and running after her.”

Few days back the couple was seen taking their little bundle of joy back home. Imran Khan and Avantika looked elated as they posed for the shutterbugs with their baby.

Like a perfect dotting daddy, Imran Khan tenderly carried his daughter, who was wrapped in a pink baby wrap. It was indeed a moment of awe! They were accompanied by her mother Vandana Malik.

Imran is currently on paternity leave and will return to work next month. He last appeared in ‘Gori Tere Pyar Mein' and voiced the character ‘Blu' in the Hindi version of ‘Rio 2'.
