Indian skipper Virat Kohli on Thursday gave a pleasant surprise to ‘Virushka’ fans with his announcement of them, expecting their first baby.
The 31-year-old swashbuckling batsman took to his official Twitter handle to reveal the news of Anushka’s pregnancy.
Posting an adorable picture of Anushka with a baby bump, Kohli wrote that they are all set to welcome their first baby in January 2021.
“And then, we three! Arriving Jan 2021,” Kohli tweeted along with a picture. Anushka too took to her official Instagram handle to share this good news. Here’s the picture:
While Kohli can be seen donning a casual grey-coloured t-shirt, Anushka is seen dressed in a black polka-dotted tunic midi as she flaunts her baby bump.
There have been rumours many times in the past that the actress has been expecting her first child with Virat Kohli. She had rubbished them. Anushka had also been quizzed about marrying early, unlike other actresses in Bollywood. Reacting to the same, she had said, “Our industry is way more evolved than our industry is. Audiences are just interested in seeing actors on screen. They don’t care about your personal lives, whether you’re married or whether you’re a mother. We need to get out of this headspace. I got married at 29, supposedly young for an actress. But I did it because I was in love. (Smiles) And I am in love. Marriage was a natural progression.”
Virat and Anushka got married in a fairytale wedding in Italy’s Tuscany on December 11, 2017.
On the work front, Kohli will return to action after a gap of more than six months when he will lead Royal Challengers Bangalore in the 2020 IPL, which will now take place in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) from September 19 to November 10.
Anushka, on the other hand, has not announced any new project since her last release ‘Zero’ co-starring Shah Rukh Khan and Katrina Kaif.
