Kohli announced the birth of his first child with wife Anushka last month on social media after returning early from the ongoing tour of Australia on paternity leave. “We are thrilled to share with you that we have been blessed with a baby girl this afternoon. We thank you all for your love, prayers and good wishes,” Kohli had tweeted.
“Anushka and the baby are both healthy and we are feeling beyond blessed to start this new chapter of our lives. We hope that you can respect our privacy at this time,” he added.
The couple announced their pregnancy last year in August during the coronavirus lockdown.
The pair then headed to UAE where Kohli took part in the IPL 2020, leading Royal Challengers Bangalore into the playoffs. Anushka returned home after the end of the season while Kohli flew with his India teammates to Sydney in November for Australia tour.
Kohli was part of the six white-ball matches on Australia tour and played in the series opening Adelaide Test.
India lost the three-match ODI series 1-2 before bouncing back to win the T20I series 2-1. They then suffered a eight-wicket defeat in Adelaide before winning in Melbourne and eventually clinching the Border-Gavaskar Trophy 2-1.
