Telugu actor Jr NTR and his wife Lakshmi Pranathi have become parents to a baby boy.

NTR, who was away from Twitter for the last few years, tweeted about the birth of his son.

Pranathi gave birth to her son at a private hospital on Tuesday morning in Hyderabad. NTR and Lakhmi had tied the knot in 2011 and this is their first child.

"The mother and baby are healthy. NTR Jr came to the hospital immediately after arriving from Switzerland," a source told Deccan Chronicle.

Puri Jagannath, producer Bellamkonda Suresh and actor Kalyan Ram also visited the hospital. Many Jr NTR fans also turned up to get a glimpse of their favourite star, DC reported. The entire NTR family is excited about the arrival of the fourth-generation child.

Several celebrities posted congratulatory messages to the new parents on their Twitter handles.

Interestingly, the good news has come just three months after another Telugu star became a father. In April, Allu Arjun and his wife Sneha Reddy became parents to a baby boy. Recently, the actor shared a snap of his son, Ayaan, on his official Facebook page. Ayaan is the actor's first child.
