“Not my business but do your children have Indian middle names? You are proud of your culture and I was wondering why the kids have very Caucasian names.” To which the proud mom wrote, “They do! Swati and Avu!.”

This year has been a complicated one for the talented writer, expecting her baby and giving birth in the middle of a pandemic, however she is known for her positive outlook and even captioned her Vogue news as “Post partum pandemic fabulous.”

Adding that it was hard at first at the beginning of the quarantine, but her daughter made it easier because “she’s so fun and funny,” and they got to know each other better.
