Due to the ongoing pandemic, social distancing is the need of the hour and because of self-isolation, huge gatherings aren't allowed. This has led to the cancellation and postponing of many plans and even the birthdays are celebrated at home instead of going out partying with friends. But the family members are making sure to make the day special even at home with some pampering and video conferencing with close friends and family. Meri Aashiqui Tum Se Hi fame, Smriti Khanna too, celebrated her birthday with her hubby, Gautam Gupta at home.

It has been more than two years but we still remember how Smriti Khanna had become an inspiration for the brides-to-be when she had ditched the traditional red colour for her bridal ensemble and had opted for pink. Whenever we think of a bride, we imagine her in a red lehenga and heavy jewellery. But going the unconventional way, Smriti had flaunted her unique sense of style and had set the trend by wearing a pink bridal lehenga with minimal jewellery and makeup. As juxtaposed as it can get, her hubby, Gautam Gupta had worn a pale blue sherwani with dhoti pants and a safa. Smriti and Gautam had made us fall in love with the pastel shades for the wedding outfits!
2020 became a special year for Smriti Khanna and Gautam Gupta as the couple had embraced parenthood for the first time and welcomed a baby girl in their lives. On July 6, 2020, Smriti turned 30 and she ringed in her birthday with Gautam and her family by her side at their home. It is a special one for Smriti as it is the first one as a mother. Smriti had begun the countdown for her birthday a day before when her hubby had pampered her with morning breakfast. Here are the screenshots of Smriti's birthday celebrations:
Two days before Smriti Khanna's birthday, Gautam Gupta had posted a throwback video of his wife from their workcation in Armenia. Gautam had captioned the post as "Rummaging through pictures to edit and make a birthday video about my wife @smriti_khanna ‘s ‘exciting’ personality, I found so many that I felt that if I edit them into a video it would loose all the fun. Here goes the first one.. We were randomly walking and exploring a free day before our shoot in Armenia. She probably felt she can’t wait for another day so let me start my own song and dance in the middle of a random public place." To which, Smriti had replied, "So the reason you call me ‘excited’ is out in the open. And you’re making me a birthday edit for me? Awwwww Gautam Awwwww. many pappies to you."

Ever since Smriti Khanna had embraced motherhood, her social media feed is hijacked by her little princess and every post is a treat for all her fans. Every mother-daughter moment of Smriti and Anayka is a sight to behold. When Anayka had turned 2 months old, Smriti had posted a twinning picture with the little one and had written, "2 months old today #twinning Surround yourself with positive energy .. your mental wellbeing, your success, and your happiness depends on it!"
On April 13, 2020, when Gautam Gupta had celebrated his 31st birthday, Smriti Khanna had apologised for the delayed birthday gift. But two days later, Gautam's delayed birthday gift got delivered as Smriti gave birth to their little angel, Anayka Gupta. To announce the best news of her life, Smriti had shared a family picture with the newbie parents looking at each other with smiles on their faces and the doting mumma holding her baby girl in her arms. Smriti had captioned her post as "Our princess has arrived 15.04.2020." (Also Read: Smriti Khanna Shares A Cute Video Of Her Little Fashionista, Anayka Wearing Adorable Booties)
