Their first child, a daughter named Vaamika, was born earlier. Vaamika, a name with roots in Hindu mythology, represents an aspect of the goddess Durga. Despite its rareness in the past, Vaamika’s popularity has surged in recent years.

Now, with Akaay’s arrival, the couple has once again sparked curiosity with their choice of name. Virat and Anushka, who married in 2017, kept their second pregnancy private.

Virat Kohli had withdrawn from the ongoing Test series against England for personal reasons. India currently leads the five-match series 2-1.

Meaning of Akaay

Although Anushka Sharma and Virat Kohli haven’t disclosed the inspiration behind the name Akaay, it holds significant meaning. Akaay, derived from the Hindi word ‘kaya’ for body, suggests a state beyond physical existence.

In Sanskrit, it denotes incorporeal or without a body.

Furthermore, Akaay carries diverse connotations. It can symbolize the flame of a funeral pyre or a dwelling place. Intriguingly, the name also holds a Turkish association, where ‘Akaay’ signifies a radiant moon.
