It is often said that in kids, we see the reflection of the parents. It stands absolutely true for the Khiladi of B-town, Akshay Kumar and Mrs Funnybones, Twinkle Khanna as their little bundle of joys, Aarav and Nitara, in some way or the other reminds us of the couple. Just like Akshay, Aarav has an inclination towards cooking and baking, and on the other hand, Nitara loves to read just like her avid reader mother, Twinkle. Through their social media handles, Twinkle and Akshay often give glimpses of their family life and it is always a sheer delight for their fans.

A few hours ago, Twinkle Khanna posted a monochrome picture with Nitara, showering the little one with hugs and kisses and explained the role of mothers and the art of ‘perfectly imperfect parenting’. Twinkle captioned her post as “Our job is not to give our children perfect childhoods. It is to fill their heads with ideas, to honour their strengths and make them aware, but never underline their weaknesses. It involves loving them madly and throwing a few vegetables down their throats. We need to permanently dedicate a large number of our neurons towards their mosquito bites, bad grades and hurt feelings. And we must do all of this, day after day, without losing sight of everything we are and can be, along with being their mothers. #perfectlyimperfectparenting.”
On March 22, 2021, Twinkle Khanna stepped out with her kids, Aarav and Nitara, and the trio was clicked by the paparazzi at the Gateway of India. While Twinkle opted for a white top and printed shorts, Aarav sported a casual look in a black t-shirt and white shorts. Nitara looked like a bundle of cuteness in a beige-coloured dress. It was Aarav’s protective brother side that touched our hearts as he held his little sister’s hand as they walked their way through the paparazzi.
In October 2020, Twinkle Khanna had posted a couple of pictures with Aarav and Nitara and had written about the struggles of being a mom. In the pictures, Twinkle and Aarav could be seen playing scrabble in their garden when Nitara came and playfully troubled her brother. Twinkle had captioned the pictures as "Being a mom involves quick transitions-it’s a matter of seconds before you go from lazing peacefully on into the midst of a war zone!"

Akshay Kumar and Twinkle Khanna’s baby girl, Nitara had turned 8 in 2020 and the doting parents had expressed in their birthday wishes on social media, what their daughter means to them. While Akshay had written, "As much as everyone would like to see the back of 2020, I wish this moment, this year, this chance to spend so much time with my kids would last forever, these opportunities are my Silver Lining to 2020. Happy 8th Birthday to my Princess, my Happiness, my Reason to still be a Big Kid. I love my baby girl more than I knew was possible", Twinkle had captioned her post as "My little one turns 8! Along with all the strange and wonderful bits and bobs that seem to permeate her universe, the first copy of our children’s book-When I Grow Up I Want To Be.. has also been presented to her-for a review. I don’t know what she wants to be when she grows up, all I know is that it’s happening too fast."
To mark Aarav’s 18th birthday in September 2020, Akshay Kumar and Twinkle Khanna had penned heartfelt notes for their ‘big boy’. Akshay’s birthday special post for Aarav featured a father-son throwback picture from their Holi celebrations, as the actor had carried his little one in his arms, and he captioned the post as “Can’t believe this day has come. Happy 18th Birthday to My Boy!! Big or small I will carry you in my arms until it's time for you to carry me. Now you’re taller than me, more handsome than me, with a Heart 10 x the size of mine. The world can only benefit from you being in it. All my love, hugs & prayers, your loving father.”
Twinkle Khanna had posted a picture from the birthday celebration, wherein everyone including her, Aarav and Nitara had sported fake moustaches to match with Akshay Kumar’s look from the film, Bell Bottom. Speaking about raising Aarav to the young man he is today, Twinkle had written, “Happy 18th birthday Aarav! Here is something I had written for you once and to keep loosening the strings and finally cutting them off this year has not been easy. All these years you have been as much my teacher as I have been yours. I learned optimism, kindness and wonder from you as I taught you maths, a few manners and how to switch the lights off when you leave the room.” (Also Read: Suresh Raina And Priyanka Chaudhary Wish Their Son, Rio On His 1st Birthday, Share Unseen Pictures)
