‘Helmet’ actor, Aparshakti Khurana is on cloud nine as the actor and his wife, Aakriti Ahuja had turned parents a few days back. Aakriti had set a countdown to bring in their first child and was sharing adorable memories from their pregnancy. On August 27, 2021, the newbie parents had announced the birth of their baby girl, and now, Aparshakti shared the first glimpse of his baby girl.
The meaning of Aparshakti Khurana and Aakriti Ahuja’s daughter’s name 'Arzoie' is desire or prayer. On August 27, 2021, Aparshakti and Aakriti had announced their baby’s name on their IG handles and had revealed that they are blessed with an angel. He had written, “Aakriti and Aparshakti welcome with love Arzoie A. Khurana” atop a cute picture.
A few minutes back, Aparshakti Khurana took to his IG handle and shared the first glimpse of his newborn daughter. In the picture, Aparshakti can be seen holding his daughter’s hand, who held her mother’s finger. The picture was clicked in the hospital room. Aparshakti captioned the picture as “It’s a happy love triangle for life @aakritiahuja #ArzoieAkhurana.”
After Arzoie’s birth, in an interview with the Bombay Times, Aparshakti had opened up on the joy of being a father. He had shared that there is nothing more beautiful than growing your family with the love of your life. Aparshakti had also added that he was a bit stressed regarding the birth of his child, but it had all gone smoothly. He had thanked God for being kind to him. Aparshakti had recalled the moment when he had held his baby girl in his arms for the first time inside the delivery room. He had shared that the feeling cannot be described in mere words. He had added, "To see that this little baby is half me and half the person I love is so heart-warming."
After Aparshakti had announced the news of becoming a father, his elder brother, Ayushmann Khurrana had taken to his Instagram stories to reshare his brother’s IG post. Ayushmann is on cloud nine, as he became a tau and without wasting any time had welcomed the little angel in their family. He had written, "A new member in the fam. Best feeling!" atop it. After a few minutes, Ayushmann had shared another picture in which he had written, "Baby Arzoie is here! Best day of our lives!"
A few days ago, before welcoming their first baby, Aakriti had shared a video on her Instagram handle, comprising all the happy moments from her pregnancy journey. From the self-pregnancy test kit result to the baby's sonography video, it was a perfect treat of the best moments from her 9-month journey.
It was on June 4, 2021, when Aparshakti and Aakriti had announced news of their pregnancy with a monochrome photograph. The then-daddy-to-be, Aparshakti was seen kissing Aakriti's baby bump. While she had captioned the picture as "Doing our bit to add to this Baby Boomer generation #PreggerAlert", Aparshakti had written, "Lockdown mein kaam toh expand nahi ho paaya toh hume laga family hi expand kar lete hain."
Congratulations to Aparshakti and Aakriti!
