Please welcome Sappho. Born 07/02/20. She just spent 9 months wrapped up like a momo in my uterus. Let's give her some space🌬️ Thank you for all the good wishes and positive energy pouring in. And respect to all the women who go through the intense and gruesome experience of birth, be it vaginal or c section, so many of whom are not given credit or support for the biggest challenges they face, but are expected to do it out of some kind of duty. The process takes a huge toll both psychological and physical and should have the backing of an entire community to truly heal. And a reminder to each and every human being of where we started, being formed from tiny molecules to conscious, beautiful beings. We are survivors of the biggest battle, the one for life and existence, and should treat ourselves and others with that love and respect. "Some say an army of horsemen or infantry, A fleet of ships is the fairest thing on the black earth, but I say It's what one loves." ~Sappho~ circa 600BC

Kalki had announced last year she was expecting her first child with Guy, a classical pianist from Jerusalem.

The Dev.D actor, in her long Instagram post, said she has respect for all the women who go through the intense and gruesome experience of childbirth.

Kalki ended her post with a poem by the Greek poet Sappho, whom her daughter seems to be named after, and who is widely regarded as one of the greatest lyric poets.

From Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara and A Death in the Gunj to Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani, Kalki has appeared in some of the most popular Bollywood movies in recent years. She has been active in the Indian entertainment industry since 2007.

The actress, born and brought up in India to French parents, was earlier married to director Anurag Kashyap.
