One of Bollywood's most anticipated events of the year was announced with a tweet from veteran actor Amitabh Bachchan, who wrote: I AM DADA to the cutest baby girl!!

The event - actress and former Miss World, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, gave birth to a baby girl, her first child with husband and fellow actor Abhishek Bachchan, on Wednesday morning (IST), at Mumbai's suburban Seven Hills Hospital.

Aishwarya Rai married Abhishek Bachchan on April 20, 2007, joining one of Bollywood's most senior families. Amitabh Bachchan announced Aishwarya's pregnancy on Twitter in June, sounding tremendously excited about his future grandchild.

The baby, born on Nov. 16, shares her zodiac sign with her world-famous mother (who was born on Nov. 1), under the sign of the Scorpion; one of the reasons, according to astrologers, behind her artistic career.

The Significance of the Mother-Daughter Scorpio Bond?

It appears that a mother and her child, born under this zodiac, will have a fiery and emotionally intense relationship and be close to each other, according to a column published by AstroYogi.com. In addition, the column also says that both are likely to make great demands on each other's time and will get along quite well.

Disputes, if and when they do occur, may get a tad violent and could result in the two ignoring each other for a while, before things fall back into place. The column adds that the best aspect of their relationship will be their intense love for each other.

Famous personalities under this sign include revolutionary artist Pablo Picasso, the iconic queen of France, Marie Antoinette, French philosopher Voltaire, former U.S. President Theodore Roosevelt, Microsoft founder Bill Gates and author Truman Capote, among many others.

The sign is the eighth in the Zodiac and originates from the constellation Scorpius. It is occupied by the Sun, from Oct. 24 to Nov. 22 and is considered, by astrologers, a feminine and negative (introverted) sign.
