Rohit and Ritika had managed to keep the news of the pregnancy hidden from the rest of the world for quite some time but the Indian cricketer recently revealed that he was going to be a father.
Rohit opened up about his wife Ritika’s pregnancy in a chat with former Australia captain Michael Clarke in a promotional video.
“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,” Rohit told Clarke.
The 31-year old opener will lead Team India in absence of regular captain Virat Kohli. Kohli was rested for the last two games of the five-match ODI series against New Zealand and the following T20 series owing to his “workload in the last few months”.
