Virat Kohli-Anushka Sharma Baby LIVE Updates: Hardik Pandya, R Ashwin Welcome Virushka to Parenthood

Congratulatory messages, both from celebs and fans, started pouring in as soon as Virat Kohli announced the arrival of their baby girl.

Virat Kohli-Anushka Sharma Baby LIVE Updates: In what was probably the most anticipated arrival in celebdom in recent times, Anushka Sharma and Virat Kohli have welcomed their child, a baby girl. The couple became parents on Monday and the Indian skipper announced the happy news on social media, writing, “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.”

The couple announced their pregnancy in August last year and every move of Anushka was closely monitored by their fans in anticipation of the baby’s arrival. Congratulatory messages, both from celebs and fans, started pouring in as soon as the news of the baby’s arrival was announced. Many of Virat’s teammates as well as several former cricketers welcomed him to the fathers’ club.

Regarded as one of the best contemporary batsmen in the world, India cricket captain Kohli was recently granted paternity leave by the BCCI after the first Test against Australia. “He will return after the first Test against Australia in Adelaide,” Board secretary Jay Shah had said in a press release in November. Kohli returned home from Australia after taking part in three ODIs, three T20Is and first Test of the ongoing four-match series.

Anushka Sharma has had a rather active pregnancy. After accompanying Virat to the UAE for the Indian Premier League 2020, the actress continued to fulfill her work commitments once she returned to India. She was spotted out and about Mumbai, shooting or going for a medical check-up. Up until a day before the delivery, actress had been actively sharing all the delicious dishes she has been enjoying as she waited for the baby to arrive.

On their third wedding anniversary, in a loved up post for Virat, Anushka had reminded us that they are going to turn three very soon. The couple first met on the sets of a commercial and dated for four years before getting married in a private ceremony in Italy on December 11, 2017.

Anushka, who is also the co-founder of the banner Clean Slate Filmz, had a great 2020 work wise as two of her productions — Netflix film Bulbbul and Amazon Prime Video web series Paatal Lok — garnered favourable reviews from both audiences and critics. As an actor, she last appeared in the 2018 film Zero, alongside Shah Rukh Khan and Katrina Kaif.
