Actor Kalki Koechlin and her Israeli boyfriend Guy Hershberg have become proud parents to a baby girl. The couple welcomed the child on February 7.
Kalki took to Instagram to share the news. She wrote, "Please welcome Sappho. Born 07/02/20. She just spent 9 month wrapped up like a momo in my uterus. Let's give her some space. Thank you for all the good wishes and positive energy pouring in. And respect to all the women who go through the intense and gruesome experience of birth, be it vaginal or c section, so many of whom are not given credit or support for the biggest challenges they face, but are expected to do it out of some kind of duty. The process takes a huge toll both psychological and physical and should have the backing of an entire community to truly heal."
The actor added, "And a reminder to each and every human being of where we started, being formed from tiny molecules to conscious, beautiful beings. We are survivors of the biggest battle, the one for life and existence, and should treat ourselves and others with that love and respect. "Some say an army of horsemen or infantry, A fleet of ships is the fairest thing on the black earth, but I say It's what one loves." ~Sappho~ circa 600BC"
This is Kalki's first born. The actor had earlier revealed that she will be opting for water birth method for delivery. She also disclosed that she plans to give the baby a gender neutral name.
On the work front, Kalki made her Tamil debut with a special song "Kaalam" in H Vinoth’s Nerkonda Paarvai, starring Ajith in the lead role. The film, which was released in 2019, was a remake of the 2016 film Pink.
