Music composer, Pritam Chakraborty has a daughter and says now his family is complete.

“My family is now complete. ‘Hum do humare do’,” Pritam, who has a two-year-old son, told IANS. “Ever since my daughter was conceived my successful innings as a composer started.” he added.

Pritam’s wife, Smita, delivered the baby girl at 9.30 a.m. on Thursday, in the Breach Candy Hospital here. Both mother and child were healthy and fine, though the baby was born a fortnight before due date.

“My son Purvesh, whom we all call Salsa, was born more than a month prematurely. He had to be kept in an incubator. My daughter is fine, though slightly before time,” he said.

The composer says his wife would like to call their baby girl Ishqa.
