TV show, Meri Aashiqui Tumse Hi had played the role of Cupid for Smriti Khanna and Gautam Gupta. After a brief period of dating, the two had gotten married on November 23, 2017, and had started their journey of parenthood in April 2020 with the arrival of their little girl. On May 5, 2020, Smriti had taken to her Instagram handle and had revealed her angel's unique name as Anayka, which means powerful. Since then, Anayka has not only taken over the life of her parents but has also become a social media sensation with 37.1k followers.
Anayka’s IG handle is a treat for her fans as her mommy and daddy regularly share her adorable videos and pictures there. The little doll not only features on her IG handle but also frequently makes it to her parents’ IG handle. A few days back, Smriti Khanna had taken to her IG handle and had shared adorable pictures with her baby girl, Anayka. The mother-daughter duo could be seen twinning in blue tulle frocks. While Smriti had looked gorgeous as ever, her little munchkin had stolen the show. In her caption, the doting mommy had called her baby girl 'Japanese doll'. Her caption could be read as "Japanese doll (Made in India)."
The star parents are doing everything in their power to keep their little angel happy. Smriti and Gautam have got their baby girl a personalised crown-themed cot bumper from the brand, Baby Jalebi. With yellow, white and grey crowns made over it, the bumper on the head has Anayka’s name written over it, making it unique and personal. Other than this, Anayka has a pebble coloured sleigh style crib-cum-playpen is from the brand, Baby Gaga and has a large sliding drawer on the bottom. It also allows the parents to adjust the height of the dual mattress. Well, certainly Anayka has everything fancy and personalised, and if you wish to buy the same, you will have to shell out Rs 61,400. Anayka’s Crown themed full cot bumper costs Rs 12,000 with additional Rs 300 for personalisation and her crib-cum-playpen costs Rs 49,100.
We love how Smriti being a fashionista keeps her daughter, Anayka also super stylish. Her daughter truly can be an inspiration for many kids when it comes to fashion. On December 28, 2020, we had witnessed a glimpse of it when Smriti had taken to her IG handle and had shared adorable glimpses with her baby doll, Anayka as the mother-daughter duo had headed out for shopping in Dubai. In the pictures, Anayka had looked like a munchkin in a white top, pink pants and matching pink shoes, her bow hairband was unmissable. On the other hand, Smriti had twinned with her daughter in a white crop top, pink blazer and pants. Smriti had captioned the pictures and video as “Twinning with my Minnie.”
On October 15, 2020, Smriti Khanna and Gautam Gupta had celebrated their little angel's six-month birthday. Smriti had looked utterly gorgeous in a one-shoulder dress in the shades of blue and her daughter, Anayka had twinned with her beautiful mommy. In one of the pictures, the mother-daughter duo was seen posing with a bunch of balloons in the background, and the other picture was a picture-perfect family click. Alongside it, Smriti had written, "Happy ½ Birthday my princess."
Talking about Smriti and Gautam's baby girl's unique name, the actress had revealed the story of the same in an interview with the Hindustan Times. She had said that it took them 20 days to decide her name. She had further revealed what 'Anayka' means and had added that it denotes powerful and complete. She feels Anayka is an apt name for her daughter. The actress had also said that she had wanted a baby girl and her wish has come true.
Isn’t Anayka’s cot bumpers and crib beautiful?
