Explaining their thoughts behind the baby’s name, the couple continued, “In Hindu scriptures, Vayu is one of the panch tattvas. 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 deities 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 mesmerizingly beautiful. Thank you for your continued wishes and blessings for Vayu and his family.”
Sonam Kapoor and Anand Ahuja welcomed son Vayu last month. They announced the news of their baby’s arrival in an Instagram post. The statement read: “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.
