On April 20, Gautam Kitchlu announced that he and Kajal have named their son, Neil Kitchlu. Kajal’s sister Nisha Aggarwal took to social media to congratulate the new parents in town.
Taking to Instagram, Kajal Aggarwal spoke about her birthing experience. She wrote, “Excited and elated to welcome my baby Neil into this world. Our birthing was exhilarating, overwhelming, long, yet the most satisfying experience there could be! Holding Neil upon my chest covered with white mucous membrane and placenta within seconds of his birth has been my only tryst with self actualisation and such an indescribable feeling! That one moment made me understand the deepest potential of love, made me feel tremendous amount of gratitude and realise the responsibility of my heart outside of my body – forever – and all at the same time (sic).”
Kajal Aggarwal aso revealed that it has been three days since she slept properly. “Ofcourse it’s not been easy- 3 sleepless nights that bleed into early mornings, learning to latch and burp, squishy bellies and stretched skin, frozen pads, breast pumps, uncertainty, constant worry if you’re doing it all right, all topped with dozes of anxiety (sic),” she added.
The Acharya actress said that postpartum isn’t glamorous. She posted, “But it’s also moments like these – Sweet cuddles in the wee hours of the morning, gazing into each other’s eyes with a look of confident recognition, adorable little kisses, the quiet moments when it’s just the two of us, growing, learning, discovering each other and navigating this wonderful journey together. In reality, postpartum isn’t glamorous but it sure can be beautiful! (sic).”
Kajal Aggarwal and Gautam Kitchlu got married in a dreamy wedding ceremony on October 30, 2020, in Mumbai. On New Year 2022, Gautam announced Kajal’s pregnancy in an Instagram post. The two have been best friends for 7 years and dated for 3 years before tying the knot.
