Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma welcomed a new member in their family on January 11, 2021. The actress and her cricketer husband were blessed with a baby girl, whom they have lovingly named, Vamika.
Soon after the birth of his first child and after completing his paternity leave of a short period, Virat resumed his work and along with wife and his daughter, left for his cricket tour.
After wrapping up the England - India series, the cricketer started with the next season of the Indian Premier League (IPL). And currently, he is in his best form.
Yesterday, during his team Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) match against Rajasthan Royals (RR), Virat was on his top form. He smashed a half-century, his first of the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL) season, and dedicated it to his daughter Vamika.
In a video shared online by the official Instagram account of the IPL, Virat could be seen raising his bat towards his team members in the dugout. He then blew a kiss to his wife, actor Anushka Sharma. Finally, he dedicated the 50 runs to his little girl Vamika as he made a cradle gesture with his hands.
Fans gushed over Virat’s display of love. “Once a king always a king the way Kohli gave flying kiss to his wife OMG! Very well played RCB. RCB is saal cup le jayegi dekh lena boss (RCB will surely win the IPL trophy this year, just wait and watch),” one commented. “He did it for his daughter,” another wrote.
Virat and Anushka welcomed their first child, Vamika, on January 11. Last month, on the occasion of International Women’s Day, Virat shared a picture of Anushka holding Vamika and showered praise on her for being the strongest woman he knows.
Virat and Anushka fell in love while shooting for a shampoo commercial in 2013. They got married in Italy, away from the media glare, in December 2017.
