Celebrity couple Anushka Sharma and Virat Kohli revealed on Tuesday that they had been blessed with a son, named Akaay. The boy’s birthdate was disclosed by Anushka and Kohli as February 15. “We are delighted to announce to everyone that on February 15th, we welcomed our newborn boy, Akaay & Vamika’s younger brother, into the world with boundless pleasure and love in our hearts! In this wonderful moment of our life, we ask for your blessings and well wishes. At this moment, we humbly ask that you respect our privacy. Gratitude and love. Virat & Anushka “In a social media post, the pair wrote.

There has been a lot of curiosity in the unusual and uncommon name, Akaay, since the announcement. It comes from the Hindi word ‘kaya’, meaning ‘body’. “Akaay” refers to a person who transcends their bodily form. The word ‘Akaay’ means’shining moon’ in Turkish.

The word’s provenance, which the parents considered before naming the son, has not yet been confirmed.

On social media, the infant boy has already amassed a large following. In less than an hour, Virat Kohli’s Instagram post received over five million likes.

Following the news’s release, well-wishers from the cricket and entertainment industries swamped the comment section. In the comments area, actor Ranveer Singh put several ‘evil eye’ and love emojis. Actor Rakul Preet Singh tweeted, “God bless.”
