What Is The Meaning Of Akaay – Name Of Anushka Sharma, Virat Kohli’s 2nd Child




Celebrity couple Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma announced on Tuesday that they have been blessed with a baby boy – Akaay. Kohli and Anushka revealed that the baby boy was born on February 15. “With abundant happiness and our hearts full of love, we are pleased to inform everyone that on 15th February, we welcomed our baby boy Akaay & Vamika’s little brother into this world! We seek your blessings and good wishes in this beautiful time in our lives. We request you to kindly respect our privacy at this time. Love & Gratitude. Virat & Anushka,” the couple wrote in a social media post.

After the announcement, there has been a lot of intrigue surrounding the unique and special name –  Akaay. It is derived from the Hindi word ‘kaya’, which means ‘body’. Akaay means somebody who is more than his physical body. In Turkish, the word ‘Akaay’ means ‘shining moon’.

The couple is yet to confirm which origin of the word they thought over before naming the boy. 


The baby boy has already become very popular on social media. The instagram post by Virat Kohli garnered over five million likes in just over n hour,   

After the announcement of the news, fans and members from the film industry and cricket world flooded the comment section with good wishes. Actor Ranveer Singh posted a string of ‘evil eye’ and heart emojis in the comment section. “God bless,” actor Rakul Preet Singh wrote.

The IPL teams also reacted. “More to the King’s Pride! Congratulations! @imVkohli @AnushkaSharma,” wrote Chennai Super Kings. 

“And then there are four. Many congratulations to Anushka and Virat, and a big welcome to the youngest member of the RCB family, Akaay. This is such a happy news and India will sleep well tonight,” wrote Kohli’s IPL team Royal Challengers Bangalore.

 Virat and Anushka tied the knot on December 11, 2017 in Italy. The duo was blessed with Vamika on January 11, 2021. The couple was tight-lipped about their second pregnancy.

However, recently former South Africa skipper AB de Villiers on his official YouTube channel revealed that Kohli and Anushka were expecting their second child.

The former Proteas skipper apologised to Kohli, saying he made a “blunder” in his previous video.
“My friend Virat Kohli is still not available. I cry out to everyone to give him the privacy that he deserves. Family comes first. No one knows what exactly is going on. I am asking all of us to respect that. I made a blunder in my previous show and I apologise to the Kohli family for that,” ABD said on his YouTube channel.

Kohli opted out of India’s ongoing five-match series against England earlier, citing to personal reasons.
