AL Vijay, the popular filmmaker and his wife Dr Aishwarya recently welcomed their first child, a baby boy. The happy news was revealed by AL Vijay's brother Uday through his official social media pages recently. According to sources, Aishwarya gave birth to the baby on May 30, 2020, at a private hospital in Chennai. Both the baby and mother are doing fine.
The popular filmmaker tied the knot with Dr Aishwarya, a medical professional, on July 11, 2020, in a private ceremony held in the presence of family members and close friends. Reportedly, it was purely an arranged marriage for AL Vijay and Aishwarya, who were introduced to each other by their respective families.
It is the second marriage of AL Vijay, who was formerly married to Amala Paul, the popular actress. The filmmaker had fallen in love with the actress during the shooting of his popular film Deiva Thirumagal in 2011. The couple tied the knot in 2014 after three years of courtship.
However, AL Vijay and Amala Paul started living separately after three years and finally divorced by mutual consent in 2017. If reports are to be believed, Vijay's parents were against Amala's decision to pursue a career in films after marriage and wanted the couple to start a family as soon as possible.
AL Vijay is currently busy with the production of his ambitious project Thalaivi, which is based on the life of former Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa. The much-awaited project, which is being made in two parts, will feature renowned Bollywood actress Kangana Ranaut in the titular role. Thalaivi, which was originally slated to be released on June 26, 2020, is now postponed indefinitely due to the lockdown.
