The heart of the country might beat for India football captain Sunil Chhetri, but his heart beats for only for his lady love, his beautiful wife Sonam Bhattacherjee. Though Sonam isn’t in as much spotlight as other popular cricketer’s WAGs, the bong beauty is class apart in many ways.
The two dated for more than a decade before tying the knot last year on December 4. As the couple celebrated their first wedding anniversary recently, it was heart warming to read their love notes for each other on social media.
As the lovebirds nestle themselves in a private cocoon away from the world on the special occasion, they celebrate it by playing keepy-uppy. Sunil posted a video of the same and wrote, “Brought in the anniversary with a few keppy-uppies. We should be able to celebrate the second one with a football instead of a balloon, what say missus?”
The footballer posted another adorable photo from the wedding day along with a sweet note for his wifey.

To Sonam, I don't really know how this year went by, but it did give me enough to sit back and realise that my life after our wedding, has been better in every single way. Most importantly, I'm a happier person. I'm going to give every passing year my best shot at being the friend and partner you want. We are one down, let's keep the count going. Love you! @sonam_29
Sonam, on the other hand, went two steps ahead and posted fun videos of the couple from their wedding day with a lovey-dovey message for her darling husband. “As we celebrate our first wedding anniversary, I feel so proud and happy about how our relationship has blossomed. I look forward to many more years of adventures, romance and togetherness. You are my soulmate, my hero, my best friend. Happy anniversary partner. Thank you family and friends for being so supportive.”
In a video shared by Sonam, the two can be heard talking about their mushy love story and how it all began. “I used to play for Mohan Bagan and train under my coach Subrata Bhattacharya. This madam (Sonam) here stole my number from her father’s phone,” shared Sunil.
Initially, Sonam lied to Sunil saying she is his coach’s daughter’s best friend but soon he knew who she was. “And to be honest, I told her you got to go back home Sonam, so forget about all this. But later it had to happen. After that 13 years se hamara chakkar chal raha tha (For 13 years, we were dating each other).”
Refurbishing his commitment towards the love of his life, later the captain cool added, “No matter what, I’ll be best partner ever. I’ll give my best. I love you so much.”
