Or whatever, there was something! So all those things seemed to have come in place this time. Even though it wasn’t planned as we were thinking maybe in a year or two. But I think that’s the best thing about it. Now we are just diving right into it without too much pre-planning.” (Also Read: Dalljiet Kaur's Son, Jaydon Misses Playing Stone, Paper, Scissor With Mommy [Video Inside])
In an interview with the Mumbai Mirror, Kalki had spoken her heart out on her pregnancy and marriage.

Talking about the same, she had said, “It’s a process of gradual trust. Ironically, the distance helped us communicate a lot more since we don’t have the luxury of seeing each other every day. He has spent his life teaching children piano so, he’s going to be the disciplinarian, the more experienced parent I feel.”
Kalki Koechlin revealed her due date to be the end of January 2020 and sharing a cute message for her unborn child, she had remarked, “Hey kid! It’s gonna be taught but can’t be tougher than what you are going through right now in the womb because you know, forming and existing is probably one of the toughest jobs. And yeah, I got your back. Actually, you got mine right now so that’s why I am gonna get yours when you’re born.”
In the HT Brunch interview, Kalki Koechlin had shared how the experience of pregnancy has changed her. Kalki was quoted as saying, "I already feel the changes in the way I react to things. I am more deliberate, slower, more patient. When motherhood comes eventually, it brings with it a new consciousness to your sense of person. I still want to work but it is less about the rat race and more about nurturing oneself through one’s work. It becomes about infusing concentration and energy inward." Kalki had also revealed that she has already zeroed down a name for her baby, “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.” (Also Read: Rekha's Controversial Statements On Relationship With Amitabh Bachchan And Their Tragic Love Story)
