Almost three months into lockdown, even though we miss working, we all would admit that it has been a blessing in disguise. Though it was like a forced summer vacation at home, what else could have been a better opportunity to spend 24x7 quality time with family. No matter how much we craved going out, we couldn't and that's what made the lockdown special. No work and no tension, only the focus on compensating for the family time we had missed all over the years. Spending time with parents, siblings, partners and kids, and being safe by staying at home, we couldn't be more thankful and grateful for in life!

The star couple, Soha Ali Khan and Kunal Kemmu have been making the most of their time at home with their two-and-half-year-old daughter, Inaaya Naumi Kemmu. A little girl, who loved dancing, laughing, swimming, playing, peek-a-boo, jumping and could do clapping, giving flying kisses and making animal sounds; grew up to be a toddler, who loves doing yoga, reading, painting, helping her mama with household chores, bungee-jumping, bike riding with her papa, playing the piano and an animal lover, along with the aforementioned things.
Soha Ali Khan and Kunal Kemmu love sharing glimpses of their personal life at home and their little girl, Inaaya Naumi Kemmu. A while back, Kunal posted a picture with Inaaya and their pet, Masti, from the terrace of their house, where his baby girl can be seen finishing her meal sitting on a chair. As Kunal seems to be indulged in a conversation with her, he captioned the picture as "My personal little sunshine under the dark clouds."
On June 10, 2020, ahead of the International Yoga Day 2020, Kunal Kemmu had given a glimpse of him and his daughter, Inaaya Naumi Kemmu practising yoga. Kunal had posted a video with his little one, where the father-daughter duo could be seen chanting ‘Om’ and the actor had taught his daughter how to sit cross-legged while doing it. The little angel had looked intently and had followed the instructions of her papa. Kunal had captioned it as "Preparing for world yoga day P.s: both of us were having a bad hair day."

Just when the Unlock 1.0 in June had begun in the non-containment zones in India with precautionary measures, an SOS of a cyclonic storm, Nisarga was declared by the India Meteorological Department (IMD) in Maharashtra and Gujarat. Asking everyone to stay at home to stay safe back then, Soha Ali Khan had posted a picture of Inaaya Naumi Kemmu, gazing at the outside world through her window. Before posting this picture, Soha had posted a glimpse of the weather outside and had written “Just when they said you can go for a walk…” atop it. Soha had written, “Stay Home Stay Safe” with a cyclone sticker atop Inaaya’s picture. Inaaya had looked like a doll amid her teddy bears, waiting for the day when she can finally go out and play!
While the lockdown had brought loneliness, anxiety and depression for many of us, Kunal Kemmu credited his two-and-half-year-old daughter, Inaaya Naumi Kemmu for bringing positivity in his life. In an interview with the IANS, Kunal had said, “Inaaya is the best thing that ever happened to me. Every day she brings a lot of positivity and happiness in Soha’s and my lives. She's the one who helped me to survive this lockdown in the most positive manner. She has brought routine in our lives.She wakes up early, so we also have to wake up early and spend our day according to her routine. We have become more disciplined because of her. I am loving this fatherhood phase.”
On June 3, 2020, Kareena Kapoor Khan had posted a family tree made by her beautiful niece, Inaaya Naumi Kemmu, daughter of Soha Ali Khan and Kunal Kemmu. In one picture, Inaaya can be seen pointing towards mama, Saif Ali Khan and mami, Kareena’s picture in the family tree and the next photo was a zoomed-in one of the same. Inaaya’s family tree had face cut-outs of Inaaya's maternal grandparents Sharmila Tagore and Mansoor Ali Khan Pataudi, paternal grandparents, Jyoti Kemmu and Ravi Kemmu, her parents, Soha and Kunal, her bua, Karishma Kemmu, her mama and mami, Saif and Kareena, her masi, Saba Ali Khan, and her cousins, Sara Ali Khan, Ibrahim Ali Khan and Taimur Ali Khan. Bebo had captioned it as “My beautiful niece #FamilyForever @sakpataudi @khemster2 @ss0176 @saraalikhan95 @iakpataudi @karishmakemmu @kemmujyoti @ravi.kemmu” followed by an array of hearts.
