Rohit Sharma has joined the daddy’s club and the cricketer couldn’t have been happier. Rohit’s wife Ritika Sajdeh gave birth to the couple’s first child, a daughter, on December 30th.
The cricketer who had kept the news of his wife’s pregnancy under wraps until recently opened up about it in a chat with former Australian captain Michael Clarke in a promotional video for Hublot.
He said, “I cannot wait to be a father; it is going to be a game-changing moment in our lives. I am eagerly awaiting the moment of becoming a father. It will be a moment to change our life.”
Now, the proud father has shared an adorable photo of his newborn on social media, with the caption: “Well hello world! Let’s all have a great 2019.”
The hitman, who scored a half century in the third Test match of the ongoing India vs Australia series, took a flight back to Mumbai on Monday after hearing the news of his daughter’s birth. Rohit would not be joining the team for the crucial fourth and final test match against the Aussies but he’ll be back to Australia on Tuesday.
The adorable couple tied the knot on December 13, 2015, after dating for sometime.
