In a conversation with the Times of India, the newbie father, talked about his parenthood journey so far. The handsome actor also revealed why he and Kratika chose an Indian name unlike the trend of unusual names. Calling themselves desi at heart, Nikitin said:

"We had zeroed in on a few names for both a boy and a girl. We wanted an Indian name, not a Greek, Turkish or Italian one. We are desi at heart and like it that way. That’s how we finalised Devika for our daughter. It sounds beautiful and is timeless. There is a lot of grace, dignity and deep meaning attached to the name.”


Nikitin also talked about the emotions he underwent after holding his baby for the first time. Calling it surreal, he shared:

"Holding my baby in my arms felt surreal! We are a close-knit family and we partake in and celebrate every joy together with equal enthusiasm. When my sisters gave birth to baby boys in 2018, I felt the same surge of emotions when I held them... it felt like I was holding my own children. We are five boys in the house and my daughter Devika is the first girl. So, the family is even more excited and prepared to pamper her."
