In an interview with ETimes, Kanika Dhillon opened up on how she managed to hide the news about her pregnancy for so long. Revealing the same, she shared:

"Himanshu and I were very cautious and superstitious as it was COVID times. It was such a scary period for everyone. So apart from our family and close friends, we did not share our little miracle baby news. Finally and thankfully the world is opening up now and we were bursting with joy to share our bundle of joy with the world at large. So there you are, we have announced."

"Himanshu always wanted to name his child Veer if he had a son. The moment he suggested, I fell in love with the name; actually I also always quite liked the name ‘Veer’. So, our baby is called Veer Dhillon Sharma."

My son Veer gives me strength and courage that I didn’t know I had - he makes me a stronger woman and he makes me believe in miracles!"
