Actor Sonam Kapoor and husband Anand Ahuja, who welcomed a baby boy last month, have announced their son's name.

On Tuesday, the couple dressed in colour coordinated bright yellow ethnic attires shared the first picture of their son Vayu.

In an adorable Instagram post, Sonam and Anand wrote: "In the spirit of the force that has breathed new meaning into our lives...In the spirit of Hanuman and Bheem who embody immense courage and strength... In the spirit of all that is sacred, life-giving and eternally ours, we seek blessings for our son, Vayu Kapoor Ahuja."

The actor explained to her followers the choice of her son's name. "In Hindu scriptures Vayu is one of the paanch tatvas. He is the deity of breath, the spiritual father of Hanuman, Bheem and Madhav and He is the incredibly powerful lord of wind. Praana is Vayu, a guiding force of life and intelligence in the universe. All the deity's of Praana, Indra, Shiva and Kali relate to Vayu. He can breathe life into beings as easily as he can destroy evil. Vayu is said to be heroic, brave and mesmerisingly beautiful. Thank you for your continued wishes and blessings for Vayu and his family." 

Sonam and Anand became parents for the first time last month.

"On 20.08.2022, we welcomed our beautiful baby boy with bowed heads and hearts. Thank you to all of the doctors, nurses, friends and family who have supported us on this journey. It's only the beginning but we know our lives are forever changed - Sonam and Anand."

Sonam Kapoor and Anand Ahuja, after dating for a couple of years, got married in May 2018 in Mumbai.
