Nakuul Mehta and Jankee Parekh are the perfect examples of a fairytale love. When Nakuul had first seen Jankee, he was just 18 and had thought how amazing his life would be if she would agree to marry him. He had always known that she was the one destined for him. After dating each other for 9 years, the two had gotten married on January 28, 2012. The beautiful couple has completed 9 years of marital bliss and are enjoying every moment of their parenting phase with their baby boy.
Jankee Parekh and Nakuul Mehta had announced their first pregnancy in November 2020 with cutesy pictures of the expecting mommy, proudly flaunting her baby bump and an excited daddy with expressions of wonder on his face. The wait of nine months was finally over for the lovely couple when they had welcomed their baby boy on February 3, 2020. Sharing first glimpses of their little wonder, Nakuul and Jankee had expressed their gratitude and had later revealed their baby boy's unique name as Sufi.
On April 13, 2021, Jankee Parekh turned a year older and her hubby, Nakuul Mehta penned a hearmelting birthday wish for her. A few minutes back, Nakuul shared a picture with Jankee and wrote, “You are the eternal spring to my parched heart. Happy birthday, Sufi ki Amma @jank_ee” followed by a heart emoticon. Nakuul also shared glimpses of Jankee enjoying her birthday eve on his IG stories and wrote, “Consecutive lockdown birthdays be like” followed by a heart sticker.
On the other hand, Jankee took to her IG handle and shared an adorable picture with her little munchkin, Sufi and wrote, “This year I couldn’t have asked for anything more than having this little man in my arms who I get to nuture for life. This birthday I wish and pray that I can be the best mother to my son and fill his heart with so much positivity, love, peace and belief that he can grow up to be the best version of himself.”
In an interview with Elle India, Nakuul and Jankee had shared their love story. Revealing how their love story is straight out of a Nicholas Sparks' novel, Nakuul had shared, “Our story is a ‘straight out of a Nicholas Sparks novel meets Amit Trivedi music on Anurag Basu visuals’ kind of story. I met Jankee at a Shiamak Davar Dance Summer Camp right after she graduated from her 10th and I had finished my 12th. It was love at every sight for me, and it kept growing until I managed to make awkward introductions. I played the proverbial best friend whilst making every effort to win acquiescence. She eventually relented, and I hope she doesn’t regret that too much.”
Nakuul and Jankee are enjoying every moment of their parenthood. On April 11, 2021, Nakuul had taken to his Instagram handle and had shared a cool picture with his young man, Sufi. In the picture, Nakuul had donned a white t-shirt as he had held Sufi in his arms, who was dressed in a striped white t-shirt with a pair of white pants. Alongside it, Nakuul had written, "One of these gents are ready to crash the servers of TINDER."
When Nakuul and Jankee’s baby boy, Sufi had turned one month old, his mommy had shared the first-ever picture with her baby boy on her IG handle. In the picture, we could see Jankee crying as she had hugged her son tight. In her caption, Jankee had mentioned how hard it was for her to leave her son at home for just 40 minutes and then knowing that her baby is crying, had made her cry too. She had written, "1st of March was the first time I left Sufi home alone whilst I went to the dentist for just literally 40 mins. I was prepping for it all day, timing everything in a way that I manage to feed him well and also manage to reach the doctors in time. But of course nothing ever goes as planned when you really want it to My cellphone rang five mins before I was about to finish at the dentist and was told that Sufi is awake and crying incessantly. The next ten mins from the time I left the dentist until the time I reached home, I felt a whole lot of emotions that I probably I haven’t felt for anyone else in the world."
Happiest birthday, Jankee!
