On September 29, 2017, Inaaya Naumi Kemmu was born to Soha Ali Khan and Kunal Kemmu. On the occasion of Children's Day 2017, the couple shared this pictures as the first glimpse of their little one on social media. (All pictures/Kunal Kemmu and Soha Ali Khan's Instagram account)
Just a few days after Inaaya's birth, mid-day had caught up with Kunal Kemmu to ask about his experience as he entered parenthood. It was Kunal who named her.
Talking about an 11-days old Inaaya, Kunal said, "She is just 11 days old and is sleeping for most part of the day. She is a good kid and is very quiet. She does not cry at all. Touchwood. Her eyes are shut all the time, but she looks damn adorable when she opens her eyes. At first I thought she looked like an alien, but then that's how most of the babies look."
Inaaya is a name which has an Arabic origin and the name means 'gift from God' or 'one to behold'. Revealing why the couple decided to name their first baby 'Inaaya Naumi', Kunal said, "Both me and Soha had our list of baby names and we decided to go ahead with Inaya Naumi Kemmu. We named here Inaya Naumi as she was born on 'Naumi'."
There was immense curiosity behind Inaaya Naumi Kemmu's colour of eyes, given that neither momma Soha nor daddy Kunal have grey ones. However, his grandmother and grand-aunts do have light eyes and perhaps that's from whom Inaaya got her expressive pair.
When Inaaya turned 6 months old, Soha and Kunal celebrated her half birthday, by cutting a half cake. On the occasion, Soha shared an interesting thing that she learnt from her daughter. Soha said, "Inaaya taught me not to stress. Kids are very resilient. They grow up and become their own individuals. They have their own personalities, so as much as you try to force your ways, they will rebel. You have to learn to be calm."
When Inaaya Naumi Kemmu's cousin Taimur Ali Khan had first come to visit his younger sister, he didn't react much after seeing her. Kunal Kemmu had narrated the incident, in 2017, saying, "Her cousin Taimur had been over to meet her, but he didn't give any particular reaction. In fact, we didn't expect either as he is a baby too. He either laughs or cries after meeting people. But Taimur enjoys whenever I pick him up and play with him."
As Inaaya Naumi turns 1 today, we look back at some candid pictures of the little one!

For the unversed, Kunal Kemmu was in a live-in relationship with Soha Ali Khan, daughter of veteran actress Sharmila Tagore and the late Mansoor Ali Khan Pataudi, since May 2013. They got engaged in July 2014 and tied the knot in January 2015. The pair have together worked in films like '99', 'Dhoondte Reh Jaaoge' and 'Mr Joe B. Carvalho'.
Inaaya Naumi celebrated her first Raksha bandhan festival, this year. She tied Rakhi to her cousins - Ibrahim Ali Khan and Taimur Ali Khan. This picture was taken on the occasion.
