Ruslaan Mumtaz-Nirali Mehta to Smriti Khanna-Gautam Gupta: Here are the celebs who became parents during the lockdown

The worldwide lockdown that was imposed earlier this year. It disturbed human life across the planet. We have seen heart – wrenching stories of people, who were hit the hardest by the lockdown. Economies have crashed and nations have run dry of resources.

However, positivity is something that makes its way, somehow. And nothing manifests positivity as the birth of life. While we were in mourning over the world’s misery, what came as a ray of hope for most was the birth of their child.

From Ekta Kaul and Sumeet Vyas to Smriti Khanna and Gautam Gupta, let’s look at celebs who became parents during this lockdown and welcomed a new member in their family.

Ruslaan Mumtaz and Nirali Mehta

Ruslaan Mumtaz and wife Nirali welcomed their first child – a Baby boy named Rayaan on 26th March. However, the delivery came with its own share of troubles. Sharing the same, Ruslaan had said, “Due to the Covid-19 lockdown, I and Nirali were advised to leave the hospital unexpectedly on March 27. We were supposed to stay at the hospital for two more nights, but the authorities first asked us to change Nirali’s room to a different floor. An hour later, the doctor informed us that the hospital had opened up for Covid-19 patients. They suggested we should leave.” That was surely a critical situation but we are glad that everything went well and the mother and baby are doing fine.

Shikha Singh and Karan Shah

TV actress Shikha Singh and her husband Karan Shah became parents to a baby girl on 16th June. The parents named their little Alayna Singh Shah.

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! And our heartfelt thanks go to @PhilipsAvent_India🙏 which is the actual inspiration for us and for Gautam, in particular, to help him to secure the confidence to be able to be equally participative in handling breastfeeding and making life easier for three of us!🙌 With Philips Avent Breast Pump even he can breastfeed our missy Anayka👶 and be the #PartnersInBreastfeeding!👌 Now, I feel much insouciant while I am away for work or for any genuine reason because my partner has got his best partner with Philips Avent to feed the baby!😍
