The adorable couple had announced the news of their pregnancy in November 2020 and had shared every detail of the beautiful pregnancy journey of nine months. On February 3, 2021, Nakuul and Jankee had become proud parents of a baby boy. Two weeks after the birth of their son, Nakuul and Jankee had announced the gender-neutral name of their newborn as Sufi Mehta.
To announce the arrival of their son, Nakuul and Jankee had posted a glimpse of their newborn's hand, holding his mommy's finger. The elated parents, Nakuul and Jankee had captioned their posts as "February 3, 2021 This is Us Grateful and sleepy in equal measure. *Ing: @jank_ee/@nakuulmehta & Him" respectively. Since then, the doting parents have been treating their fans with adorable glimpses of Sufi.
To mark Sufi’s first Eid, Jankee Parekh took to her IG handle and posted a cute video with him. In the video, Jankee was seen sharing the story of Eid in a beautiful prose with her baby boy, Sufi. Not just Sufi listened to his mommy carefully but was also seen responding to her. At the end of the tale, Sufi got his first Eidi from Jankee, who made him do salaam and wished him on his first Eid. Jankee captioned the video as “Why do we celebrate Eid & will @babysufim earn his first Eidi?”
Nakuul and Jankee are enjoying every moment of their parenthood journey. On April 11, 2021, Nakuul had taken to his Instagram handle and had shared a cool picture with his young man, Sufi. In the picture, Nakuul had donned a white t-shirt as he had held Sufi in his arms, who was dressed in a striped white t-shirt with a pair of white pants. Alongside it, Nakuul had written, "One of these gents are ready to crash the servers of TINDER." On the other hand, Jankee had posted a video, wherein she was seen singing the song, 'Lukka chuppi bahut hui’ to her baby boy. Alongside it, she had written, "Singing to my heart #songsforsufi.”
A few days back, Jankee had shared two beautiful pictures of herself. Alongside it, Jankee had penned a long note on how her life has changed post embracing motherhood. She had written, "Haven’t shared a story for long, probably I didn’t know what to talk about. And then so many of you reached out on DM’s and shared yours and that encouraged me to write my most recent one. It’s been more than 60 days to my new life & SOMETHING HAS SWITCHED. I finally feel so much at ease embracing motherhood."
Jankee had further shared how she can handle her crying baby now, "Today, when Sufi cries, I no longer feel the urge to hand him over to my Jhapa to quieten him. I feel so much more in sync and in rhythm with his body, feelings and emotions, and I know that my one-touch will put him at ease. Earlier, I always felt the need to depend on either my help or someone or the other to take care of him through the day, whether it is changing his diapers, to making him have a bath to massaging to making him sleep or just make him burp."
Eid mubarak, Sufi!
