Nakuul Mehta and his childhood sweetheart, Jankee Parekh had hopped on the journey of parenthood in February 2021. The adorable couple had announced the news of their pregnancy in November 2020 and had shared every detail of the beautiful pregnancy journey of nine months. On February 3, 2021, Nakuul and Jankee had become proud parents of a baby boy. Two weeks after the birth of their son, Nakuul and Jankee had announced the gender-neutral name of their newborn as Sufi Mehta.
To announce the arrival of their son, Nakuul and Jankee had posted a glimpse of their newborn's hand, holding his mommy's finger. The elated parents, Nakuul and Jankee had captioned their posts as "February 3, 2021, This is Us Grateful and sleepy in equal measure. *Ing: @jank_ee/@nakuulmehta and Him" respectively. Since then, the doting parents have been treating their fans with adorable glimpses of Sufi.
On September 3, 2021, Sufi turned seven months old, and his parents, Nakuul and Jankee introduced him to the world and revealed his face. The doting parents shared a video of their 'sunshine', Sufi being in his goofy self, and we just couldn't take our eyes off him. With his blonde hair, blue eyes and chubby pink cheeks, Sufi is one handsome boy. Nakuul and Jankee captioned the video as "Hi, I am Sufi and I am 7 months old today. It’s so nice to finally meet you. P.S. Letting my folks share this on my behalf ‘cause I got cool things to do!"
A few days back, Jankee had taken to her IG handle and had shared an adorable picture with Sufi. Along with the picture, Jankee revealed how her baby boy made her realise the true meaning of love. Her caption could be read as "Never knew your presence will have such an effect on my being… When you came into my world I realised life’s true meaning love @babysufim."
In an interview with the Hindustan Times, Nakuul Mehta had spoken about the surreal feeling of becoming a father and had expressed the overwhelming feeling of being in the operation theatre and watching his child's birth. Nakuul Mehta had remarked, "It was overwhelming to be in the operation theatre (OT) besides my wife, and watch my child being born.”
Revealing how emotional and surreal he had felt, Nakuul had continued, “I had heard it often enough, but nothing prepares you for that kind of rush. It’s surreal, deeply emotional and yet magical in so many ways. I’m not sure if the fact that I’m a father has sunk in completely yet. We're only a week into this, but I do feel infinite compassion and love for this new life and for everybody around me."
Thank you Nakuul and Jankee for making our day with the adorable glimpse of Sufi!
