Indian cricket’s star player, Virat Kohli, along with his actress wife Anushka Sharma, shared the joyful news of the birth of their baby boy, Akaay, on social media. This announcement followed earlier confirmations of Anushka’s pregnancy by former South African cricketer AB de Villiers. Akaay was born on February 15, as disclosed by Kohli himself. The news was warmly received not only in India but also in Pakistan, where fans celebrated by distributing sweets and expressed hopes for Akaay to emulate his father’s success on the cricket field, much like Arjun Tendulkar has followed in the footsteps of his legendary father, Sachin Tendulkar.

“With abundant happiness and our hearts full of love, we are pleased to inform everyone that on 15th February, we welcomed our baby boy Akaay & Vamika’s little brother into this world!,” Kohli informed in an Instagram post.

Pakistan Wishes Virat Well

In addition to congratulating Virat on becoming a father again, fans in Pakistan are eager to see Akaay excel in cricket and possibly surpass his father’s achievements. Kohli and Anushka already have a three-year-old daughter named Vamika. Kohli had initially withdrawn from the first two Tests against England for personal reasons, later opting out of the entire series. His last appearance was in the second Test against South Africa in January, where he contributed scores of 46 and 12 in the two innings.

“We seek your blessings and good wishes in this beautiful time in our lives. We request you to kindly respect our privacy at this time.”

India currently lead the 5-match Test series against England 2-1.
