Star Plus' Diya Aur Baati Hum's Meenakshi aka Kanika Maheshwari has been missing from the serial for few episodes as we all know that the actress was heavily pregnant. DABH took a leap of six years, where all babies of Bhabho's sons have grown up to naughty and pampered children.
The good news is, the actress delivered a baby boy on 4th April at around 6.30 pm in Mumbai. It is showed now in the serial that Kanika, who plays the role of Meena and her husband Vikram, are right now staying abroad. We miss Kanika in the show as she was the one who was tickling our funny bones by either getting stuck with her Bhabho or Sooraj's (Anas Rashid) wife Sandhya (Deepika Singh).
According to reports, it was Caesarean and both baby and mother are doing well. TOI quoted Kanika as saying, "We are fine. I just came for my regular medical check-up on Friday to the doctor and I got into labour around 9 pm. Both Ankur and I are very happy to have a healthy baby."
Kanika married Delhi-based businessman Ankur Ghai, who was her university friend on 18th January 2012 at Kanikaa's farm house in New Delhi. The couple were dating for around six months.
Previously, there were rumours of her quitting the show, but the actress had denied. It has to be noted that Kanika's Baby shower was also shown in the show. Her co-stars had planned to make that day special for her, almost like her real baby shower function, by giving her gifts.
We congratulate Kanika on the arrival of the bundle of joy.
