When a child is born, the first and foremost step is to think of a name for the child. Everyone in the family goes crazy thinking about the possible names and comes up with some strange options. For the time being, the baby can be called with any doting name like babu, shona, chotu, choti, but at the end of the day, every child needs a name. While some decide the name for their child well in advance, some decide to let the name come naturally holding the child. Bhojpuri actor-singer and politician, Manoj Tiwari had already decided that his first daughter, Rhiti from his first wife would decide the name for his newborn, and now, he has announced the name of the little one.

Manoj Tiwari has a huge fan base, who wishes to know everything about his life. He is one of the most active leaders on social media and totally knows how to swoon his fans. In 2010, he had separated from his first wife, Rani, but despite the separation, Manoj had made sure to provide all the comforts to his ex-wife and their daughter, Rhiti. After his separation from Rani, Manoj Tiwari had tied the knot with Surabhi in 2020 and on December 30, 2020, he had announced the news of becoming a father for the second time to a baby girl.
The baby girl is going to be one-month-old soon and Manoj’s fans were speculating the name of his newborn daughter. When Manoj had announced the news of welcoming a baby girl in his life, the netizens had started suggesting names for him and most of them had named the girl as ‘Rinkiya’, courtesy to his popular song, Rinkiya Ke Papa. Now, in a conversation with ETimes TV, Manoj Tiwari has revealed that he has finally named his newborn daughter and her name is not Rinkiya. Stating that his elder daughter Rhiti has finalised the name, he said, "It felt great to have my elder daughter name the younger one. Rhiti had already told us that she would name her sister Saanvika and we respected her decision. It is one of the many names of Goddess Lakshmi. Incidentally, Rhiti is another name of Goddess Durga. So now, I have two goddesses in my life."
It was on December 31, 2020, when Manoj Tiwari had taken to his Instagram handle and had shared a beautiful picture with his newborn baby girl right from the hospital and had informed his friends, colleagues, and millions of fans that he had become a father for the second time. In the picture, the Bhojpuri actor could be seen gazing at his little princess with a cute smile on his face, speaking volume of his immense happiness. The delighted daddy had written a sweet caption along with the picture, and it could be read as “Mere ghar aayi ek nanhi pari… Iam blessed with a baby girl… Jai Jagdambay” followed by two folded hands emoticons.

In an interview with ETimes, Manoj Tiwari was asked about whether he had decided the name of his newborn. To this, he had stated that it is his elder daughter, Rhiti’s right and she would decide the same. In his words, “She will name my newborn after she lands. The two sisters haven't met and I am looking forward to it. She did see the newborn over a video call but meeting in person is better.” He had also opened up about his second marriage to Surabhi and the cordial relationship between Surabhi and his elder daughter, Rhiti. Talking about his marriage, Manoj had revealed that it was Rhiti, who had asked him to get married to Surabhi. He had said, “Surabhi and I got married in April during the lockdown. She used to look after my administrative work. Actually, she is a singer and has sung in one of my music videos. It was my daughter Rhiti who suggested Surabhi and I should tie the knot. She and Surabhi are very comfortable with each other.” (Must Read: Sushant Singh Rajput's Sister, Shweta Singh Announces A Scholarship Of $35,000 On His 35th Birthday)
