Anushka and Virat announced the pregnancy in August and wrote, “And then, we were three! Arriving Jan 2021.”

Earlier, talking about parenthood, Anushka told Vogue India, “There are so many similarities in the way we are as people and the way we approach life. So I do think that will work for us. I’ve been thinking about it before I even became a parent. Conditioning is the most important role in how we see the world. I come from a progressive background, so that will always be a part of our home.” She added, “Love is the underlying factor in our home, and what’s important to us is that our child be respectful of people. You have to create that value structure. We don’t want to raise brats.”
