Newbie Daddy, Dheeraj Dhoopar Reveals The Real Reason Behind Selecting His Newborn Son, Zayn's Name

Television couple, Vinny Arora Dhoopar and Dheeraj Dhoopar embraced parenthood for the first time with the birth of their son on August 10, 2022. Sharing a beautiful picture message featuring a blue sky and a wintry scenery they announced the same. Since then, though the doting parents haven't shown their baby boy's face, every now and then they share drool-worthy glimpses of the little munchkin and we just can't stop gushing over them. 

It was on September 10, 2022, when Dheeraj Dhoopar and his wifey, Vinny Arora Dhoopar had taken to their IG handle collaboratively and revealed the cutesy name of their son. The couple had shared an endearing picture of the father-son duo, wherein Dheeraj could be seen holding his little munchkin close to his heart. Both the baby and daddy were twinning in a black-coloured outfit. However, it was the baby boy's mickey mouse printed pants which swooned our hearts. Revealing their son's name, the couple had captioned the picture as:

"He's got my dimples & all of my heart.. Never me anyone so beautiful, so we named him Zayn."

Now, in an interview with Pinkvilla, Dheeraj Dhoopar shared the real reason behind selecting the unique name for his one-month-old son, Zayn Dhoopar. In the conversation, the actor shared that he had thought of this name much earlier, and when he saw the little boy, the same name reappeared in his mind. He also mentioned the literal meaning of the word and revealed that he couldn't think of any other name at that time, he said:

"I thought about this name a long time back. Whenever I thought about being a father, and if I got a son, I'll name him Zayn. And, this is what happened. When I saw him, that thought again re-occurred in my mind, and I knew that 'Zayn' is the name. He's a part of me and so beautiful that I couldn't think of any other name, and Zayn means 'beautiful'."


For the unversed, Dheeraj is performing in a reality show, Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa 10, and is also shooting for his upcoming daily soap, Sherdil Shergill, with Surbhi Chandna. Thus, juggling between his professional and personal life, he is also going through daddy guilt. Talking about it in the same conversation, he shared that it sometimes also affects his health. However, as soon as he spends some time with his son, he feels relaxed. In his words:

"Doing two-two shows is exhausting, It takes a toll on my health sometimes but yes, it's a part of the process, of my career. With 2 shows, God gave me a stress-buster, my son. I feel guilty for not being able to spend much time with him but when I go back to him, I forget everything. I feel relaxed and there's no stress. I forget all the pain, and I just want to be with him. At the end of the day, I feel great."

"My lifelines."
