The couple welcomed their bundle of joy on the same day last year, and since then, Sonam has been embracing the joys of motherhood, often sharing adorable glimpses of Vayu’s life on Instagram.
Recently, Sonam shared a series of heartwarming pictures from their son’s first birthday celebration. The actress organized a special puja with her family to commemorate the occasion.

In one of the touching images, Sonam and Anand can be seen engaged in a puja ceremony, enveloping their son in the warmth of family traditions. Another snapshot captures Sonam cradling her baby boy in her arms, radiating the unmistakable glow of maternal love.
Captioning the post, Sonam expressed her gratitude for the blessing of Vayu’s presence. She wrote, “Our Vayu turned 1 yesterday. We did a lovely puja and lunch with family.

The event was adorned with an abundance of flowers, balloons, and a meticulously decorated table laden with delicious food, creating an atmosphere of joy and unity. The Kapoor-Ahuja family came together to mark this significant day in their lives.
It was on September 20, 2022, that Sonam and Anand unveiled the name of their beloved child through a heartfelt Instagram post. In their announcement, they revealed that they chose the name “Vayu” for their son. Sonam’s Instagram post reflected the deep significance of the name, drawing parallels to Hindu mythology.
