India’s power couple Anushka Sharma and Virat Kohli welcomed their first child on January 11, 2011. Virat took to his social media to announce the birth of their daughter on their social media. “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. 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. Love, Virat,” Kohli had written in a statement on his social media.
On January 21, 2021, the actress and Indian Cricket Team Captain made their first public appearance since the birth of their daughter. Both of them were wearing masks as they stopped by a clinic. Anushka Sharma was smiling as she posed with Virat. She was wearing denim on denim outfit whereas Virat donned all-black attire.
After the birth of their child, Anushka Sharma and Virat Kohli made an appeal to paparazzi to not click their daughter’s picture to protect her privacy. The note read, “Hi, Thank you for all the love that you have given us for all these years. We are happy to celebrate this momentous occasion with you. As parents, we have a simple request to make to you. We want to protect the privacy of our child and we need your help and support.”
The couple added, “While we will always ensure that you get all the content you need featuring us, we would request you to kindly not take or carry any content that has our child. We know that you will understand where we are coming from and we thank you for the same.”
On the work front, Anushka Sharma plans to return to work in May 2021. The actress has reportedly signed a biopic on cricketer Jhulan Goswami.
