On March 2, 2021, Kishwer Merchantt and Suyyash Rai had taken to their IG handles to share 'good news’ of their lives. To announce that they’re expecting their first child, Kishwer and Suyyash had posted a romantic picture from the beach, in which he could be seen sitting on his one knee, holding his wife as she had cradled her baby bump.

In an interview with the Pinkvilla, Kishwer recalled when she had come to know about her pregnancy and how it had turned from a ‘big shocker’ to a ‘pleasant surprise’ for them. She had shared, "So we got to know about our pregnancy on the 17th of January and by then I was already two-months pregnant but I just didn't realize it all. It was when I started feeling tired and low that it struck me that probably pregnancy could be the reason behind my lethargy. I got Suyyash to get the home pregnancy testing kits and that's when we got to know that I was expecting. It came as a shocker for us initially as we weren't expecting it at all. We hadn't planned it. It was like a big shocker in the beginning but it gradually turned into a pleasant surprise."

Kishwer Merchantt is 40 and feels that it is absolutely fine to plan a family when one feels right and not according to society. Breaking the stigma around the age of embracing motherhood for a woman, Kishwer had said, "I have conceived naturally at 40 and I don't think that age is a major problem in today's era in terms of conceiving. Nobody can say that in my case I mean, as I said I conceived naturally at 40 and I think it's fantastic. I believe 40 is the new 30. There's nothing to worry about is what I really want to tell women. You can get married at 35, 36 or whenever like I did and have your babies too whenever you feel like. Yes, that's a different story if you want to be a young mother, then you will have to plan accordingly but otherwise, I don't think there is any need to succumb under any norm or pressure."
