Announcing her name, Shaheer took to his social media on Monday and shared an unseen picture with Ruchikaa from the pregnancy days. "Blessed with the gift of life. Filled with immense gratitude… need all your love and good wishes for the journey ahead. Keep us in your prayers...#Anaya," he captioned the post. He revealed they have named their daughter, Anaya.
