A father and a daughter’s relationship is beyond words, which is why it is said that a daughter is daddy’s little angel. A father is daughter’s first hero before her Prince Charming comes and takes her away from him. One of the strong and lovely father-daughter duos from our tinsel town is of none other than Khiladi, Akshay Kumar and his 6-year-old, baby girl, Nitara Kumar. It was on September 25, 2012, that Akshay Kumar and his actress-turned-author wifey, Twinkle Khanna welcomed their angel, Nitara in this beautiful world.
Recently, on September 25, 2018, it was Nitara’s sixth birthday and her doting daddy took to his official Instagram handle to wish her. Akshay shared a lovely snap with Nitara in a pool along with an even lovelier caption that could be read as, “My Baby Girl, you have given me Love I didn’t know existed Please don’t grow up just yet I'm not ready for you to swim without me. Happy 6th birthday my Princess.” Not just him, even her gorgeous mumma Twinkle too wished her on social media. While sharing her dreamy snap with daddy, Twinkle wrote, "My little baby is growing up so fast. #Happy6th #birthdaygirl".

In an interview earlier, Akshay Kumar shared that he wants Nitara to learn self-defence. The Padman actor was quoted as saying, “She needs to be independent. As a father, I would want to be there with her at all times, but I know that’s not possible.” (Also Read: When Shilpa Shetty Revealed That Akshay Kumar Used And Dropped Her After Finding Twinkle Khanna)
He also went on to add, “My kids are as kids should be. They play, have fun, and just be... I don’t push them, I try to motivate them. One needs to give kids the space to grow, and I do that. But instilling right values is important, that’s what my parents did, and that’s how I want it for my kids. They value what they have Everyone should be thankful for the many blessings they have. My wife (Twinkle Khanna) is the one who has brought them up so well... mera toh kuch nahi hai (smiles).. In fact, after our marriage, she has brought me also up really well”.
