Dulquer himself announced the big news by sharing the hospital record of the baby via his Facebook page. "For all the immense love all of you shower upon us. For all the undying support you give us. For always rooting for us to do our best. Every release, every event, every news of ours lives you all share in our joy. In return I can only return our happiness, joy and gratitude [sic]," he wrote on social media.

Calling parenthood as his biggest dream, he also said that the arrival of the baby has brought changes to his life forever.

Today is unforgettable in more ways than one. My life just changed forever. We've been blessed with a drop of heaven. At long last my biggest dream came true. I got my princess. Amu got a mini version of herself.#mygirl #babyboo #princessdiaries #blessed #amume&boo #entirefamilies wrappedaroundherpinkie

Dulquer got married to Amal Sufiya on December 11, 2011, even before he made his acting debut with the Malayalam movie, Second Show.

Meanwhile, following DQ's  Facebook post, a few memes surfaced online, not on him, but on Nivin Pauly's son Daveed Pauly. The adorable kid has already become the favourite of many, and people are eagerly waiting to see him on the big screen soon. In the memes, trolls have used the image of Daveed aka Dhadha's reaction upon hearing the birth of his future heroine. Not just Daveed, even Aju Varghese's twins Luke, Jack and Asif Ali's son Adam are also part of the memes.

Even megastar Mammootty, father of DQ, is now being called as the most good-looking grandfather in Kerala.
