Ankit Gera had got married with Rashi Puri, who is an NRI from Nigeria during the lockdown, which is why they couldn’t go out and travel much post their wedding. However, he called his son as ‘honeymoon baby’, and when asked the reason, he shared:

“I got married amidst the lockdown. Rashi and I couldn’t travel anywhere. Around that time, I was offered a show and had to join the shoot immediately. So, we came to Mumbai expecting the stay to last for a couple of months. However, Rashi got pregnant and we couldn’t travel back to Delhi for the first three months. We stayed back for good (smiles). So, yes, it’s a honeymoon baby for us.”


When Ankit was asked whether they had thought about their son’s name yet, the actor revealed the unique name of their son by which they are calling him. Concluding the interview, the doting daddy mentioned:

“So, there is going to be a lot of confusion regarding the name. We were using an app to monitor the growth of the baby during the pregnancy and Rashi named the baby A. I would call him ‘Little A’. We haven’t kept the name yet, but for now, everyone is calling him ‘Little A’.”


Congratulations to Ankit and Rashi for welcoming their little prince into this world!
