The moment a couple finds out that their life is soon going to change with the arrival of a little being, they start nesting. From 'Netflix and chill', they start exploring interactive books for the kids, the high-tech gadgets get replaced by baby toys and cradle, their minimalistic home turns into riots of colour and that's the start of their parenthood journey. While the birth of a baby is indisputably miraculous, the needs of a tiny being are daunting. And television couple, Smriti Khanna and Gautam Gupta are going through the same phase of nappy changing and waking up with the alarm of their baby's cry.

The reel-life couple turned real-life couple, Smriti Khanna and Gautam Gupta had embarked the journey of parenthood in April 2020 with the arrival of their baby girl. While everything was going smooth in Smriti's pregnancy, the pandemic ruined a lot of fun. Nevertheless, the actress kept the focus on the positive aspect of life. The perfect couple often shares snippets of their life on Instagram.
Recently, in an interview with SpotboyE, Smriti opened up on being a mother. When the interviewer asked her what is the best thing of being a parent, the actress stated that the moment you look at your baby's face, you forget all your worries whether you are sleep deprived or you are cranky. She shared that when you hear your baby's voice in the delivery room, you forget all the pain and you only think about your baby.

For those who don't know, Smriti and Gautam have worked together for the first time for a song video after their marriage. Smriti opened up on the experience and said, "When we used to shoot for Meri Aashiqui that time we were just friends. And I had never thought that in future he will be my husband. But now when we have spent so many years together, it was different chemistry altogether."
In an earlier interview with SpotboyE, Smriti had talked about being a mommy and had said, "Our sleepless nights have begun (laughs). However, I’m getting habituated to it. The problem is that due to this lockdown, we don't have any help around us plus we don’t want to risk it by calling someone."
On the occasion of Mother's Day, Smriti Khanna's husband, Gautam Gupta had taken to his Instagram handle to wish the new mommy on her special day. He had shared a couple of pictures with her and their baby girl. But one picture that had stood out was of Smriti holding her little munchkin while their pooch lovingly looked at the little wonder. Gautam captioned the pictures as "Happy First Mother’s Day my love!" (Don't Miss: Benafsha Soonawalla Talks About Marriage With Boyfriend, Priyank Sharma, Reveals A Personal Detail)
