Sonam Kapoor and Anand Ahuja, who welcomed their first child, a baby boy, last month, today dropped the first picture of the baby on social media. Sonam also revealed the baby's name as Vayu. Sharing a picture of her and Anand, both twinning in yellow, along with the baby, Sonam wrote, " In the spirit of the force that has breathed new meaning into our lives... In the spirit of Hanuman and Bheem who embody immense courage and strength... In the spirit of all that is sacred, life-giving and eternally ours, we seek blessings for our son, Vayu Kapoor Ahuja (sic)."
She went on to add, " In Hindu scriptures Vayu is one of the paanch tatvas. He is the deity of breath, the spiritual father of Hanuman, Bheem and Madhav and He is the incredibly powerful lord of wind. Praana is Vayu, a guiding force of life and intelligence in the universe. All the deity's of Praana, Indra, Shiva and Kali relate to Vayu. He can breathe life into beings as easily as he can destroy evil. Vayu is said to be heroic, brave and mesmerisingly beautiful. Thank you for your continued wishes and blessings for Vayu and his family (sic)." The actress had also shared baby-themed birthday cake to mark one month of his birth.
Sonam had announced the arrival of their firstborn last month on her social media page. She had written, "They announced the news of their baby's arrival in an Instagram post. The statement read: "On 20.08.2022, we welcomed our beautiful baby boy with bowed heads and hearts. Thank you to all of the doctors, nurses, friends and family who have supported us on this journey. It's only the beginning but we know our lives are forever changed - Sonam and Anand (sic)." The duo had tied the knot in 2018 after years of dating.
