Star freestyle wrestler Geeta Phogat won hearts across the world when she became the first Indian wrestler to win gold at the 2010 Commonwealth Games. She also made the country proud when she becamethe first Indian woman to qualify to for the Summer Olympics in 2012.
Her popularity in the country got a further fillip after the 2016 Bollywood film 'Dangal' featuring Amir Khan and based on the lives of the six Phogat sisters including Geeta and Babita who are all wrestlers.
The image of the baby boy garnered a lot of love and adoration on social media. Many conjectured that the baby, born to two of the most prominent wrestlers in the country, may end up becoming a wrestler too!

Congratulations both of you on being promoted as parents. BTW, look at the boy, he’s not at all looking like a just born, but seems to be ready to take on his dad. Cute. Is the future history just taken birth?— Venkat Rameshwar (@venkatrameshwar) December 25, 2019
