To announce the arrival of their baby girl and her beautiful name, the newbie parents, Aparshakti and Aakriti, had taken to their respective IG handles and had written, "Aakriti and Aparshakti welcome with love Arzoie A. Khurana" atop a cute card. And now, in an interview, the doting daddy shared the surreal feeling when he looked at his daughter's face for the first time.

In an interview with Filmfare, Aparshakti Khurana revealed how he loves to keep looking at his daughter, Arzoie's face and said, "Firstly, she doesn't sleep and daughters are special, you know? I just want to keep looking at her. I don't take off from work normally, but today is the first day when I'm feeling like staying back at home."

Aparshakti also revealed the meaning of his daughter's name and shared an interesting detail about the same. Stating how his daughter's name has her mother, Aakriti's identity in it, Aparshakti retorted, "It's from the Guru Granth Sahib and means 'a prayer to the God'. Arzoie A Khurana is the name, A stands for Ahuja which is my wife's name. The contribution made by a mother is nowhere close to the contribution made by the dad. So, it was really important to have Arzoie A Khurana there. It was important to have Aakriti's identity in our baby's name. I can see that Arzoie has Aakriti's eyes and her nose. Maybe the chin is mine, I would like to believe."

Aparshakti is surely on cloud nine with the arrival of his little princess. He stayed with his pregnant wife, Aakriti, in the operation theatre throughout her delivery. Going further in his interview, the Helmet actor revealed how he was supposed to cut the umbilical cord himself but could not do it.


Speaking about the same, he stated, "One day before our delivery, they had allowed another person inside the OT and he was this tall, fit guy and jaise hi usne dekha, he fainted! And it was quite chaotic because already surgery chal rahi hai and now the doctors have to focus on him also. So, at the last moment, the doctors asked me to excuse myself for five minutes as they didn't want to take chances. And I went out for five minutes and they made me enter the OT again and it was beautiful."
