Indian Cricket Team Captain Virat Kohli and Bollywood star Anuskha Sharma have announced the birth of their first baby on Monday, 11th January 2021. Virat took to social media to announce that the couple had been blessed with a baby girl on Monday afternoon.
Virat and Anushka’s love story had taken the internet by storm during their courtship phase. The two reportedly met on the sets of TV commercials that featured them together. Their whirlwind romance set relationship goals for all their fans when they didn’t shy away from publicly admitting their relationship and even braved the trolls together. Virat’s iconic “flying kiss” for his ladylove from the field made many fans go gaga over their love.
After going through minor ups-and-downs in 2016, the couple proved that their relationship had stood the test of time. Virat and Anushka, or “Virushka”, as the nation knows them, gave their first pleasant surprise when they tied the knot in a wedding as epic as their love story in Tuscany, Italy in 2017. The pictures of their fairy tale wedding are still making rounds on social media.
During the lockdown in August 2020, Virat and Anushka announced their first pregnancy on social media. Anushka captioned it with “and then, we were three! Arriving in Jan 2021.” The announcement almost broke the Indian internet, as elated fans couldn’t hide their excitement and happiness for the adorable couple. Ever since their announcement, Anushka kept sharing her thoughts and updates on this new milestone in her and her husband’s life.
She said, “Nothing is more real and humbling than experiencing the creation of life in yours. When this is not in your control, then what really is.” All this while, Virat was a doting husband and to-be dad as he was seen caring and looking after his wife in every way possible.
In an interview with a magazine, Anushka said that she only ate toast and crackers during her first trimester and when it ended, she craved for vada pav and bhelpuri. She had also mentioned that they did not want to raise the child under the public eye and did plan to engage him or her in social media at an early age. Recently, Virat Kohli was on tour with the national team in Australia. He had requested the BCCI for paternity leave and returned to Indian in December 2020 after the first Test.
Since then, he had been by Anushka’s side throughout to support her and welcome their first child together. In the latest social media post, Virat has said that both Anushka and the baby girl are keeping healthy. He thanked the fans for all the love and prayers and said that the couple feels beyond blessed to start this new chapter of their lives. Fans and friends alike have showered the couple with best wishes and blessings. After this sweet news, fans will now be looking forward to what the lovebirds decide to name their little daughter.
