Photos – mostly of men and women in cream and white – from actor Kunchacko Boban’s baby’s baptism have been circulated online for a while. But so far the baby’s photo has been a blur. A new video has now come out, of the close-up shots of baby Izahaak, that Kunchacko has put up online, with a song and other visuals from the baptism day.
What you hear in the background is Bette Midler’s song Baby Mine. Parents Priya Ann Samuel and Kunchacko cuddle the baby, as more relatives join them. Also seen in the video are celebrity visitors with their families – Mammootty, Dulquer Salmaan, Jayasurya, Lal Jose, Chemban Vinod, Asif Ali, Ramesh Pisharody, Tovino Thomas, Poornima Indrajith, Unni Mukundan, Vijay Yesudas, Vinu Mohan, Joju George and others.
It was a much celebrated news when Kunchacko and Priya had their baby in April, 14 years after their wedding in 2005. After christening the baby Izahaak at a function in Kochi in June, Kunchacko had posted on Facebook: “Thank you everyone for all the Love, prayers, wishes n blessings showered on our family on Izza baby’s baptism day. Humbled by the affection and care ! (sic).”
Social media users had flooded the actor’s Facebook page with wishes when he announced the birth of Izahaak on April 17. The photo shared by the actor showed the new baby's tender feet. Kunchacko married Priya, with whom he was in a relationship for six years, on 2 April 2005 at Little Flower Catholic Church in Ernakulam.
Priya had, in an interview to Vanitha magazine, shared the pain she had to go through in the years before Izahaak’s birth, when at birthday functions and other parties, she would be asked uncomfortable questions about the delay in becoming a mother. She’d wear her sunglasses so people wouldn’t see her cry, Priya had said in the interview.
