Talking about Smriti and Gautam's baby girl's unique name, Smriti Khanna had revealed the story of the same in an interview with the Hindustan Times. She had said that it had taken 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.
Smriti Khanna took to her Instagram handle on August 5, 2020, and posted an adorable twinning family picture. The pictures had Gautam sitting on a couch with baby Anayka in his lap and his wifey, Smriti by his side. Flaunting their yellow ensembles, the whole family looked like a bunch of sunflowers. In her caption, Smriti talked about how breastfeeding is a task in itself and how her husband, Gautam proves to be of great help in parenthood. Her caption can be read as "Having a nurturing and cognizant partner always standing by your side is such manna from heaven, especially when you enter motherhood and realize how challenging it can be when it comes to managing breastfeeding as a part & parcel of daily life routine. A very important thing that I and Gautam are learning during parenthood is how to be resilient and instrumental for each other!"
A couple of months ago, in an interview with The Times of India, Smriti had talked about her weight loss and postpartum depression. 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."
