Neha Dhupia Announces The Unique Name Of Her Baby Boy, Reveals How The Little Munchkin Reacts To It

Neha Dhupia and her then-best friend, now-husband, Angad Bedi, had dated for quite a long time until 2018, when they had decided to take their relationship to the next level by tying the knot. They had a very hush-hush wedding, and ever since then, there has been no lookback for the couple.

The duo is blessed with two children, a daughter, Mehr Dhupia Bedia and a son who came into their lives in October 2021. Neha and Angad are hands-on parents, and they love their kids and try to keep them afar from the media glares as much as they can. They still haven't revealed their son's face yet, but today they made an announcement and declared their baby boy's name.

Neha Dhupia took to her IG handle and shared a set of two pictures, one with the whole family, where Neha and Angad can be seen enjoying in the swimming pool with their kids. While in another, Neha can be seen hugging her son close to her chest. Sharing these two photos, the actress penned a caption revealing the name of her baby boy along with an evil eye emoticon. The caption can be read as:

"Our baby boy Guriq."

Angad and Neha named their second baby, Guriq Singh Dhupia Bedi. In an interview with Hindustan Times, the second time mommy, Neha mentioned how happy and proud she feels to attach both her and Angad's surname to their kids' names. She said:

"We are happy and extremely proud that we attach both our names with our son and daughter's (Mehr) name. There you go, three months later, now you know what we call him."


Talking about the meaning of their second child's name, the actress revealed that they had many options, but they wanted something pure and beautiful. She shared:

"Guriq means one with God. One from God and saviour of the world. It is a different name and we love it, even the spelling is beautiful and unusual. The credit for the name goes to the mother, and the credit for the spelling goes to the father [Angad]."

Further going into the conversation, Neha shared that her baby boy recognises the sound of his name and reacts to the same. Neha said:

"I came up with the name, but when it comes to a child, it is always a combined effort. We are glad that we zeroed in on Guriq, because we love the sound of it. He (her son) also reacts beautifully to the name. He is just three months, and now he recognises sounds way more."


While sharing about the journey of finding a beautiful and pure name for his second child, Neha mentioned in the same interview how she picked up this name. She stated:

"I stumbled upon the name, and the meaning was beautiful. We always wanted something that has a beautiful meaning and is a slightly unusual name. The most important thing was that both mom and dad had to come around it. Mom came around instantly and Guriq's dad took a while to come around, but I'm glad he did".


Neha's first child, baby Guriq's elder sister, Mehr calls him 'Koala Brother'. Why? Well, the mommy of the two said:

“Before the delivery, when we were preparing Mehr that she would soon have a baby sister or a baby brother, she suddenly started calling the baby, Koala. Even now, she calls him that. That’s his pet name given by his loving sister. We also keep calling him, koala bear. We love it because she stuck by the original, and we came up with the name much later.”
