Dhallywood superstars Shakib Khan and Shabnom Bubly have finally put an end to all rumours about their child after posting pictures with their son, Shehzad Khan Bir, on their verified Facebook pages yesterday afternoon.
“We wanted to wait until an austere moment to announce this, but whatever Allah does, He does for the best”, wrote Bubly, posting pictures of their two-and-a-half-year-old son Bir.
“Shehzad Khan Bir, Shakib and my son, our prince. My son is my pride, my strength. Please pray for him”.
About 20 minutes later, Shakib Khan also posted a photo with his son on Facebook with a similar caption seeking the blessings of everyone.
According to sources, Bubly became a mother at Long Island Jewish Medical Hospital in New York, USA. She gave birth to a baby boy on March 21, 2020.
The actress went into hiding after she gave birth to their child. She reportedly flew to the US on an Emirates Airlines flight in January 2020. After 9 months, she came back to shoot the films ‘Bir’ and ‘Casino’.
Recent media reports suggest that the decision about whether this secret will be publicly revealed or not was made on Thursday night. Shakib, Bubly and a few people close to them were present at Bubly’s house. It was past midnight when they reached this decision. Finally, it was decided that the child’s picture will be released on Friday afternoon and a joint statement was prepared which was later published on their verified Facebook profiles.
Netizens have claimed different theories and rumours about the Dhallywood duo’s relationship. Some have claimed that they married during the shoot of their film ‘Bir’ in the USA hence their son’s name is ‘Bir.’ Some theories suggest that the couple never separated or filed for divorce but they had to disclose their child’s identity due to his US birthright and Shakib and Bubly’s green card-related legal issues.
Rumours of an affair between Shakib and Bubly came into full flight when she posted pictures of her supposed baby bump with the caption “Throwback to America”, on her Facebook page on Tuesday.
Previously, Shakib Khan married Dhallywood actress Apu Biswas in 2008. However, considering their career, both of them kept the news under wraps. Afterwards, Shakib got involved with Bubly and after learning about this, Apu appeared on a live talk show on a private television channel on April 10, 2017, with her son Abram Khan Joy in his arms.
Apu revealed her relationship with Shakib on a live TV show and said, “Shakib is my husband. Abram Khan Joy is our child.”
Now after 5 years, the identity of Shakib Khan’s other child with Bubly came to light yesterday.
