On Christmas eve while the world celebrated the birth of Jesus Christ, Indian star wrestlers Geeta Phogat and husband Pawan Kumar welcomed a beautiful baby boy, their first born, into the world on December 24.

Phogat, who tied the knot with Kumar in November 2016, took to Twitter to share the good news.

HELLO BOY!! WELCOME TO THE WORLD! He is here! We are so much in love...please give him your love and blessings," she wrote. The new mother also added that the little boy "made our life perfect now..Nothing can be described the feelings of watching your own baby be born".

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!

Meanwhile, Phogat has been tirelessly training for the 2020 Tokyo despite her pregnancy. In a recent interview to India Today, Phogat said that the 2020 tournament was her only goal right now.
