Quarantine pregnancies and baby announcements in lockdown have increased, and jokes about couples ‘ utilizing’ their time at home have turned into a hilarious meme fest. During these gloomy days of the pandemic, these announcements bring cheer and a ray of home. And right now, congratulations are in order for Indian cricketer Virat Kohli and actress Anushka Sharma as they announced their first pregnancy.
The actor took to social media to share this lovely news with the world. They wrote: And then, we were three! Arriving Jan 2021
The Captain of the Indian cricket team also shared the good news on his Twitter account. Since then the post has been loaded with congratulatory messages on the social media accounts of the couple. Virat and Anuskha got married in an intimate ceremony in December 2017.
From Alia Bhatt to Taapsee Pannu, Bollywood celebrities posted congratulatory notes. While Priyanka Chopra wrote ‘Congratulations u guys’ on Anushka’s post, Alia posted heart emojis. ‘Congratulations you two’,.
On the other hand, Virat is all set for the Indian Premier League (IPL), which is scheduled to be held in Dubai, Sharjah and Abu Dhabi, this year because of the novel coronavirus pandemic.
In a recent interview, Virat credited Anushka for changing him into a better person.
He said: “I give her full credit for making me see a different side altogether. I’m so grateful that she is my life partner because you learn from each other. I was a very closed person before, but it wasn’t very practical. When you see another person and know that your life partner has a different outlook to things, you invariably are challenged to see another point of view,”
Anushka was last seen in the film “Zero” and has not announced any new project since then.
