Breaking: Anushka Sharma, Virat Kohli welcome a baby girl
First Published Jan 11, 2021, 4:28 PM IST
Anushka Sharma and husband Virat Kohli have been blessed with a baby girl.
Last year, Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma announced that they are adding another member to the family. In identical tweets, they had written, “And then, we were three! Arriving Jan 2021.”
Today, Virat shared the news on social media saying, “We are thrilled to share with you that we have been blessed with a baby girl this afternoon. We thank you all for your love, prayers and good wishes. Anushka and the baby are both healthy and we are feeling beyond blessed to start this new chapter of our lives. We hope that you can respect our privacy at this time. Love, Virat.”
A few weeks ago, Anushka shared a photo flaunting her baby bump and wrote, “Nothing is more real & humbling than experiencing the creation of life in you. When this is not in your control then really what is?”
In an interview with Vogue, Anushka said how she only ate toast and crackers during her first trimester. “I was eating only toast and crackers for the first three months. So, when it ended, I wanted to eat vada pao and bhel puri, but that didn’t last long either. So, no real cravings,” she shared.
In the same interview, Sharma mentioned how she and her husband Virat do not want to “raise a child in the public eye”.
She said, “We don’t plan on engaging our child in social media. I think it’s a decision your child should be able to take. No kid should be made to be more special than the other. It’s hard enough for adults to deal with it. It’s going to be difficult, but we intend to follow through.”
