For some, the year 2020 proved to be an amazing one. Some celeb couples welcomed their little bundle of joys in their lives and embraced parenthood in 2020. When a celeb couple embraces parenthood, soon their fans wait for a glimpse of the little one and what they have named their newborn baby. In April 2020, Sumeet Vyas and Ekta Kaul had announced their pregnancy and since then, fans have been lovingly watching their pregnancy diaries via social media.

Finally, on June 3, 2020, Sumeet Vyas and Ekta Kaul had welcomed their permanent junior roommate and had embraced parenthood for the first time with the arrival of a baby boy. Announcing the news of his baby boy’s arrival a day later, Sumeet had posted, “It’s a boy. Shall be called Ved. Mamma and Daddy are acting cliche...smothering the child every few minutes.” Soon, Sumeet and Ekta’s social media handles flooded with congratulatory messages from their friends and family.
In an interview with Mumbai Mirror, Sumeet Vyas revealed why they have named their son, Ved. Narrating the story behind it, Sumeet said, “Long ago, one of our relatives was having a child and we were discussing names, when Ved came up and stayed with me. I decided if I have a boy, I’ll name him Ved. Since we come from the line of, it makes sense.” Describing the emotions on becoming a father, Sumeet expressed his ‘unmatched feeling’, “You do all those clichéd things that you once laughed at. Humans are so predictable.” Revealing that it was a normal delivery, Sumeet continued, "We couldn’t trust a multi-facility hospital at a time like this. It was a normal delivery and both Ekta and Ved are doing fine.”
Due to the pandemic, Ekta Kaul’s family, who is in Jammu, and Sumeet’s clan, who are stuck at home, couldn’t visit the couple. But the newbie parents are planning to bring his parents to meet their grandchild even if only for an hour. Sumeet elaborated, “Once we return home, we’ll see if they can be brought over to meet the baby, even if only for an hour.” When asked why he had announced the baby’s arrival a day later, Sumeet retorted, “It had been a long day and we needed rest. I didn’t want too much buzzing around my baby.” (Also Read: Sara Ali Khan Posts A Throwback Childhood Picture Which Reminds Us Of Her Cousin Inaaya Naumi Kemmu)
The pandemic proved to be a blessing in disguise for Ekta Kaul and Sumeet Vyas as the couple had spent the last months of her pregnancy together due to the lockdown. Sumeet, who is busy with his professional commitments, finally got some quality time to spend with his pregnant wife and he had proved to be the best husband as he left no stone unturned to make her feel comfortable. Before delivering their first child, Ekta had posted an IG story which was a glimpse of how their then soon-to-arrive baby's papa and bua, Sumeet and Shruti Vyas were preparing for the little one's arrival.
Even Sumeet Vyas and Ekta Kaul’s dear friend, Malini Kapoor had praised Sumeet for being a hands-on husband. Posting an array of pictures with the then-soon-to-be parents, Malini had written, "Aur bas samjho waqt aa hi gaya. To welcome our new member. In a few days, baby would be all set to come out and rule our worlds. I have to say that you guys handled your pregnancy so beautifully and courageously. I'm sure it wasn't easy in these testing times... The time when a woman wants the maximum pampering and entertainment..
