Bollywood actress and former Miss World, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan (37), and her hubby, actor Abhishek Bachchan (35), are expecting their first child! This is going to be one. GORJ. child.

Awesomely, the news broke earlier today (Tuesday) when Aishwarya's father-in-law, Amitabh Bachchan tweeted, "T 410 -NEWS NEWS NEWS !! I AM GOING TO BECOME A GRANDFATHER .. AISHWARYA EXPECTING .. SO HAPPY AND THRILLED !!!"

Isn't that great, Gorgeouses?! Love it!

Aishwarya and Abhishek have been married for over 4 years, and pregnancy rumours have been swirling for the past year, since Aishwarya has been taking on significantly fewer roles.

She's not filming anything right now, but, as we learned at last month's Cannes Festival, she has signed on with Madhur Bhandarkar to star in his movie Heroine.

I first heard of Aishwarya on one of the only Oprah shows I've ever watched. Oprah was interviewing her and Abhishek. "What's it like to be the most BEAUTIFUL WOMAN IN THE WOOOOORLD?" Oprah asked Aishwarya. "What's it like to be married to the most BEAUTIFUL WOMAN IN THE WOOOOORLD?" Oprah asked Abhishek....


Congrats to the whole family!

Aishwarya and Abhishek will actually be in Toronto for The Indian International Film Awards (June 23 - 25). This is the first time ever that the IIFA's have been held in North America, so there's a lot of buzz around them right now. Check out's gallery of Bollywood stars you need to know....
