Happy times are ahead for the Khurana and Ahuja families as Ayushmann Khurrana's actor-brother, Aparshakti Khurana and his wife, Aakriti Ahuja are expecting their first child. Aparshakti, who is the man of the hour, might have made his debut in the industry as Ayushmann's brother, but over the years, he had managed to create his own niche and identity in the entertainment industry. But even before making our hearts swoon with his performances, Aparshakti had lost his heart to a girl in his dance class, Aakriti.
For the uninitiated, let us give you a brief on who is Aakriti Ahuja! Aakriti is a budding entrepreneur and the founder of the company, La Feria Events. She is an MBA graduate from Indian School of Business (ISB), Hyderabad. Aparshakti and Aakriti had met each other in a dance class and since then, there has been no looking back for the couple. Stating how they had met, Aparshakti had once revealed to a media portal, "We met at the Shiamak Davar dance classes, and though I knew her from the past 7 years, we have been dating for just about a year."
In March 2021, reports were rife that Aparshakti Khurana and Aakriti Ahuja are expecting their first child. None from the Khurana family commented to deny or confirm on the pregnancy rumours. Finally, Aparshakti and Aakriti announced their pregnancy on social media by posting the first picture of the to-be mom, flaunting her baby bump. While Aparshakti captioned his post as "Lockdown me kaam to expand ho nahi paya, humne socha family hi expand kar lete hain" in Hindi, Aakriti wrote, "Doing our bit to add to this Baby Boomer generation #PreggerAlert: @taniaabroll @taniagrewalphotography."
To inform about Aparshakti Khurana and Aakriti Ahuja's pregnancy, Pinkvilla had quoted a source close to the couple as saying, "Aparshakti Khurana and his wife Aakriti are expecting their first child. The baby is expected to arrive in September, and their family is extremely happy for the couple. They can't wait to welcome the newest addition in their family."
When Aparshakti Khurana and Aakriti Ahuja completed six years of their marital bliss on September 7, 2020, their sister-in-law and Ayushmann Khurrana's wife, Tahira Kashyap Khurrana had posted a lovely wish for the couple on her IG story. Tahira had posted a twinning-in-white picture of the couple, and had written, "Jitne hot utne hi amazing couple!!! @aakritiahuja @aparshakti_khurana happy anniversary! Like I have always said you guys are couple goals!" followed by a heart emoticon atop it. Aakriti had reposted the story on her Instagram and replied, "Haha! Thank you soo much bhabhi!" On September 6, 2020, Aparshakti had posted a dreamy picture with his wife, Aakriti and had written, "6 years Back. Same Date. Same Time @aakritiahuja."
To mark their fourth and fifth anniversary, Aparshakti Khurana had posted the same picture with his wife, Aakriti Ahuja from their wedding rituals. On his fourth wedding anniversary, Aparshakti had captioned the post as "Thank you so much Kuckoo for saying YES to MY IDEA of getting married. Never felt sooo loved and special. Thank you so much for giving me amazing memories. Let's make more such memories in years to come #Kuckoo #YouBringOutTheBestInMe #HappyFourYearsToUs @aakritiahuja @vineetmodi @studio63in" and next year, on September 7, 2019, Aparshakti had written, "5 years to this beautiful moment with the most beautiful @aakritiahuja #HappyAnniversary."
Congratulations Aakriti and Aparshakti on this new journey of life!
