Gautam Gupta and Smriti Khanna are expecting their first child and anytime soon, they will become parents. Last year when Gautam had turned 31 on April 13, 2019, Smriti had given him the surprise of a lifetime. Sharing a picture of a passionate liplock and also a glimpse of the gift that she had given him, Smriti had written, “Happy birthday to the love of my life @mistergautam. Two years back you gave me the best surprise on this day. Hope you liked my surprise. Ps, This pic was clicked when he had not seen the tattoo.” Yes, Smriti had gotten her hubby, Gautam’s name inked on her ring finger!
Since Gautam Gupta’s birthday gift i.e., their first child hasn’t arrived in this world yet, Smriti Khanna penned down a heartfelt note for her husband. Sharing a video, comprising of some cherishable moments with Gautam, Smriti wrote, “Happy birthday to my most precious gem, the light of my world and my forever love. If I did anything right in my life it was when I gave my heart to you. Of all years this is the one we should celebrate the most. Sure it might not be the kind of birthday you would have wished for, spending it in quarantine, but it is one we will remember. One that we will not take for granted. I’m so grateful that your love is mine and our lives are woven together and I feel incredibly blessed to be your wife. I love doing life with you and can’t wait to share parenthood with you now. ILYSM baby @mistergautam PS Sorry the birthday gift is a bit late but it’ll arrive anytime now.” To which, Gautam replied, "Thank you sexy. These memories are the best gift on my birthday today. Made me relive all these moments of love. And don’t rob my birthday gift. That’s my gift to you."
In an exclusive interview with BollywoodShaadis.com, Smriti Khanna had spoken about the preparations they had done for the baby, her and Gautam’s first reaction when they found out about the pregnancy and a lot more. When asked, “How are you spending the last days of your pregnancy?” Smriti had retorted, “Obviously because things have changed and times are tough so we’re all spending time at home. But the good part is that Gautam and I are getting to spend a lot of time together before we become parents. It’s like a blessing in disguise.” (Also Read: Dimpy Ganguly Shares The First-Ever Picture Of Her Newborn Baby Boy, As Big Sister Reanna Adores Him)
Speaking of the preparations they had done for the baby, Smriti Khanna had revealed, “We were in the process of making a nursery for the kid but have put that on hold for now. Most preparations now are hygiene related to making sure the baby is safe.” If they had thought of a name for the little one, Smriti had shared, “Yes, we do have a list ready which has both girl and boy names. Haven’t been able to make a final choice yet.”
Revealing her and Gautam’s first reaction when they got to know about her pregnancy, Smriti Khanna had recalled, “It was a planned pregnancy but obviously for every parent, it is overwhelming once you get the big news. I had pranked Gautam before so he was a bit confused when I told him this time.” Throwing some light on the challenges she had to face due to the COVID-19 lockdown, Smriti continued, “Before the lockdown, I was panicking a lot because everyone was moving in and out of the house all the time. But the lockdown relieved me a bit. But I still feel scared when I have to go for my doc visits and will need to be at the hospital for my delivery. There is limited information available regarding how COVID-19 could affect pregnant women or babies but I try to keep calm and distracted.”
When asked about the best part about being pregnant, Smriti Khanna had remarked, “All the pampering!! You can ask for anything and it’ll be there for you. Also, the feeling of growing a life inside you can’t be explained in words.” Revealing what she’ll miss the most about her pregnancy phase, Smriti had said, “Mostly the baby movements inside me. It’s the best feeling that only a mother can experience and of course all the attention that you get.” (Also Read: Karan Johar 'Gets Back' At His Twins, Yash And Roohi After Being Hilariously Trolled By Them)
