Indian actress Anushka Sharma gave birth to a baby girl, her husband, Indian cricket captain Virat Kohli announced on social media.
Kohli shared the news on Twitter, where the couple’s names started trending shortly after.
“We thank you for all your love, prayers and good wishes,” Kohli posted on his Twitter handle.
“Anushka and the baby are both healthy and we are feeling beyond blessed to start this new chapter of our lives.”
The star couple got married in Italy in December 2017.

Kohli, one of the world’s finest batsmen, returned home from Australia where India are playing a Test series against the hosts. He took rare paternity leave and left the crucial series midway.
