When we were young and silly, we all had hoped of meeting our prince charming and raising a beautiful family with him. We all had wished for a home up in the hills with a loving husband, cute kids and a furry baby playing in the balcony. After all, no fairytale ever gets complete without a pooch. And when television actress, Smriti Khanna had tied the knot with the man of her dreams, Gautam Gupta, she had made sure of nurturing a furbaby.

Smriti Khanna had married her co-star, Gautam Gupta in 2017, and had embarked on the journey of parenthood in April 2020 with the arrival of their little girl. Since then, the new parents' Instagram handles are filled with adorable pictures of their little angel. However, last year, Smriti and Gautam had hopped on the journey of being a pet parent when they had welcomed a pooch in their life.
On September 17, 2020, Smriti Khanna's pooch, Lucas turned a year older and the pawsome mommy took to her Instagram handle and penned a lovely wish for him. The actress posted an adorably cute video for her furbaby, comprising of all his beautiful moments. Alongside it, she wrote, "Happy first Birthday Lucas baby. Thank you for coming into our lives and making it so beautiful. We love you so so much." Check it out below:
Talking about Smriti's pregnancy, Smriti had talked about the same in an interview with The Times Of India. She had shared, “I have realised that even if you speak good on social media and educate people about pregnancy and mother, haters will still troll you. I felt that people did not discuss much about pregnancy, weight issues, breastfeeding and I feel these topics should come out openly in our society because there are so many myths and women struggle all their life to lose weight. There are so many times that this becomes a matter of depression for them. They stop stepping out because they are not looking a certain way or not fitting into their dress. Some women are scared to get pregnant. There is postpartum depression and it is a big thing and it is not spoken in India."

Smriti had further added, "There are so many girls and mothers who have messaged me saying thank you for making pregnancy look so smooth and nice. They tell me they were scared to get pregnant thinking that their body would look a certain way or they will completely go on bed rest and now they feel that pregnancy can be a fun ride too. I feel there will be 10 percent people who will have problems with everything but there will be 90 percent people who were giving blessings to me and my kind which made me feel great. I am just trying to say to my fans that you can do everything in a fit way. People start assuming that agar koi patla hai... toh usne diet shuru kar diya and usko khayal nahi hai bacche ka. If someone gets pregnant, they ask the woman to just be on bed and eat double, no, all these are myths. These are wrong things to do, I am just saying be active during and after your pregnancy. So I just realised I should not bother about trollers are going to troll, I will do my job to spread positivity."
