Rahul Ravindran and Chinmayi Sripaada tied the knot in a traditional Hindu ceremony in 2014. Nearly eight years after their wedding, the couple welcomed twin babies. On January 22, Rahul and Chinmayi announced the same by sharing photos of their newborns. They wrote, "Driptah and Sharvas :) The new and forever center of our universe (sic)." Chinmayi did not reveal that she was pregnant and did a good job at it as no one except her inner circle had any idea of her pregnancy. Rahul, in an interview with the Times of India, said that it was a conscious decision to keep details about the pregnancy under wraps.
He further added, "Even now we’re very careful about revealing too many details or releasing pictures of our kids. We want them to have as normal a life as possible. The only reason we even made the announcement on social media now is that people who’ve seen Chinmayi recently could figure out she was pregnant and the word was bound to spread. We’ve had sleepless nights but I cannot explain in words how happy I feel right now. I’ve heard other parents talk about it, I’ve watched parents feel happy in movies, and yet, when it happens, you’re not prepared for the kind of love you feel. Chinmayi has been a rock star at handling them and I really don’t know how women do it all."
