The moment a woman embraces motherhood, her life takes a turn! Gone are the days of enjoying the alone time, now it is all about her baby and his/her needs. A mom has to put on so many faces to keep her child happy and healthy. The selfless job of being a mother is all about creating an influence on her baby that makes him/her a better person. And Bollywood actress, Kalki Koechlin is making sure to create a strong and powerful influence on her baby girl.

On February 7, 2020, Kalki had entered a new phase of her life when she held her little girl inside the delivery room. Kalki Koechlin and her beau, Guy Hershberg became proud parents of an angel and had named her, 'Sappho'. It is strange how a few years back, Kalki was against the idea of motherhood and couldn't relate to the thousands of emotions a mother goes through. But over the years, she has realised the importance of family and evolved as a person. And now, she is enjoying every second of being a mother!
Ever since, Kalki embraced motherhood, her Instagram feed is filled with adorable pictures of her little doll and the candid clicks of their family time. On April 5, 2020, Kalki took to her Instagram handle and shared yet another cute picture of her baby girl. In the picture, we can see, Sappho flashing her cute smile and it was clicked by her beau, Guy. The actress captioned the picture as "Covid times #loveatfirstsmile @guyhershberg". Check it out below:
On the occasion of Women's day, Kalki had posted a quick-nap picture with her daughter, Sappho in her arms. Along with it, she had written a long note and had stated that it is her beau, who is keeping an eye on them while they are sleeping. Her empowering note could be read as "Dear women, May you get to do exactly what you want and not what is expected of you or what you're supposed to do. May you give yourself time, love and rest. May you always remember to prioritize yourself in a world which might put you to one side, to pat yourself on the back for the 'invisible' work that you do, and to vocalise the troubles that you overcome . May you never refrain from laughing too loud, or expressing too aggressively or dressing too provocatively. May you look at yourself through the eyes of experience and celebration and not the objectification of the male gaze, may you learn the difference between well-intentioned patriarchal advice and true feminist criticism. May you unhook your bra strap, get into your comfiest pyjamas and chill the fuck out. Love from a happy, exhausted feminist mama bear #happywomensday #womenmatter. (By the way, don't worry, the baby is safe. The daddy who took the picture is keeping an eye on us #menmatter)."

In an interview with the Hindustan Times, Kalki had shared the meaning of her daughter's name. She had revealed, "I’ve chosen a name that works for either gender and that is representative of a gay person because I want my child to have that freedom of movement under the many umbrellas of gender that we have."
