Bollywood singer Shweta Pandit who has been in Florence, Italy, for the past six months with her husband Ivano Fucci has been blessed with a baby girl.
“We’ve named her Izana, a name given as a title to the kind and compassionate monarchs in Ethiopia, and it means ‘most powerful’,” Shweta told the publication.
Though Izana was born on February 8, the couple didn’t reveal the arrival of their bundle of joy.

On being asked about hiding about the arrival of her baby girl, the singer replied, “It didn’t feel right to share our happiest news when everything around us was so difficult. The COVID-19 crisis in Italy was worse than it is in India currently. But now that the lockdown here is almost getting lifted, Ivano and I decided to share our happiness.”
Shweta is away from her family and is taking care of her child with her husband. She went on to say that she is constantly in touch with them via video calls. The singer shared, “The most challenging part is staying away from my own family through pregnancy and delivery. I never thought that I’d be able to take care of a newborn, but I’ve surprised myself. I’m learning a lot from my mother through video calls. My dadu (Sangeet Martand Pandit Jasraj), too, calls me every day to check on us and see Izana.”
Shweta ties the knot with Ivano in 2016. This is couple’s first child.
Our heartiest congratulations to the couple!
