Pankhuri is on cloud nine as she is excited to deliver twins in August 2023.

On May 30, 2023, Pankhuri Awasthy shared a video on her IG handle and opened up about the moment when she found out about her twin babies. Recalling her experience, the mommy-to-be revealed that her scans were delayed in the initial weeks of pregnancy.

As the bleeding continued, she cancelled her shoot and asked Gautam to take her to the hospital. However, the latter tried to calm her down, stating that she should just relax and not panic. However, when they reached the doctor and got her checkup done, the doctor revealed the news to them in a filmy way. He said, 'I have to congratulate you twice'. Pankhuri also shared her reaction to the same and revealed how she manifested having twins. However, she added that Gautam, who was sitting behind her and looking at the monitor, was spellbound.
Recently, Pankhuri entered her third trimester and got a cutesy baby shower ceremony from her family. It was then that the actress revealed that she and Gautam will deliver twin babies. For the intimate bash, the mommy-to-be donned a minimal golden-hued saree with a scallop border and styled it with a matching blouse. On the other hand, Gautam looked dapper in a green-hued shirt and blue denim. Pankhuri shared the special announcement of expecting twins at her baby shower bash by dedicating the theme to her twin babies. The highlight of the event was a giant board decorated with balloons which had "One plus one makes four times the fun" written on it.
Gautam and Pankhuri kept the news about them expecting twins private for the longest time. Later, in an interview with The Times Of India, Pankhuri talked about the same and revealed that it was her husband, Gautam's decision to keep the news hidden from everyone except their families. However, the actress added that she and Gautam are blessed to have twins and said:
"Gautam wanted to keep the news about having twins private. He felt it is something that the family should know and therefore we did not share it with everyone. However, every time when someone asked me about my baby, I always felt like saying 'babies'. Gautam and I are blessed that we are having twin babies.”
