Aishwarya Rai pregnantIndian actress Aishwarya Rai and her husband, Abhishek Bachchan are expecting a child, Just Jared reports. But the happy couple weren't the ones to let the cat out of the bag.

Bachchan's father and fellow actor, Amitabh, tweeted, "T 410 NEWS NEWS NEWS !! I AM GOING TO BECOME A GRANDFATHER .. AISHWARYA EXPECTING .. SO HAPPY AND THRILLED!!!"

'Happy and thrilled' seems like an understatement for the obviously overjoyed grandfather to be. And rightly so, this will be the first child for the actress, 37, and her husband, 35, who tied the knot in 2007.
