Anushka Sharma, Virat Kohli expecting first child

Congratulations are in order from various quarters as cricketer Virat Kohli and his actress wife Anushka Sharma are all set welcome a baby.

Announcing the arrival of their bundle of joy, Virat Kohli had posted on Instagram, “And then, we were three! Arriving Jan 2021”.

The couple, who tied the knot in December 2017, took to Twitter to share the news, alongside their picture, showing Anushka’s baby bump. “And then, we were three! Arriving January 2021,” the 32-year-old actor tweeted.

The Royal Challengers Bangalore squad is in a happy frame of mind when it comes to family matters. Just a few days ago, leg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal announced his engagement, and now comes the news of the team captain expecting his first child.

Chahal had taken to social media to make this announcement and consequently also had to face a bit of ribbing from some of the senior Indian players, especially Shikhar Dhawan.

Several of Anushka’s colleagues from the film industry congratulated her. Alia Bhatt, Varun Dhawan and Dia Mirza dropped heart emojis in the comments section. “Congratsss stunners,” Parineeti Chopra wrote.

Other stars including Taapsee Pannu, Sanya Malhotra, Kiara Advani and Pooja Hegde also sent congratulatory messages. People from the sports fraternity, including KL Rahul and Sania Mirza, also wished her.
