Shalini reportedly gave birth to the baby early in the morning at a private hospital in Chennai. It is reported that both the baby and mother are doing fine.

Journalist NK Pallavi confirmed the news and posted a picture. "#Ajith and #Shalini blessed with a baby boy by 4: 30 in the morning. The mum and kid are both fine. "

The news has delighted the entire family of Ajith and Shalini. Family members and close friends have wished the couple and are likely to pay a visit to the hospital soon.

Ajith and Shalini fell in love while shooting for the 1999-hit film "Amarkalam." The couple tied the knot in 2000 and their first child Anoushka was born in 2008.

Meanwhile, Ajith's fans have started celebrating the occasion by trending the topic on Twitter. They are wishing the couple with a hash tag - #KuttyThala. The wishes from celebrities and Ajith's well-wishers are pouring in from all over the world.

On the professional front, Ajith Kumar is basking in the success of his recent movie "Yennai Arindhaal". The Tamil movie directed by Gautham Menon has done good business at the box office. It features Trisha Krishnan and Anushka Shetty in the female lead roles.

Ajith is now expected to take a break to spend time with his family. His next project, which was supposed to begin in February has been delayed. The movie will now hit the floors on 14 April for Tamil New Year. The cast and crew are yet to be finalised. But there are rumours that Shruti Haasan is going to play the female lead in the film.

The movie is bankrolled by AM Rathnam, who recently produced two of Ajith's movies "Arrambam" and "Yennai Arindhaal". Below, we bring you some of the photos taken at the hospital.
