Remember that moment in 2017 when at 8:51 pm EST, pop-ups from Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma had ‘tapped into almost everyone’s romantic instincts’? The moment when Virat became the Vice-Captain, Anushka became the Captain at their home and their partnership formed into a lifetime bond. As Shah Rukh Khan had tweeted, “Ab yeh hui na real Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi”, we couldn’t agree more with him as Virat and Anushka had made us believe in fairytale love. On December 11, 2021, Virat and Anushka had promised each other to be bound in love forever and since then, we too, are bound with their ‘forever love’!

After more than three years of married life, Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma stepped into the next phase of their ‘happily ever after’ and became proud parents to a beautiful angel, Vamika. Making 2021 a ‘Happy’ New Year for Virat and Anushka, the stork had visited the couple with their first child on January 11 and in the blink of an eye, Virushka became ‘three’. With Virat’s ‘V’ and Anushka’s ‘Ka’ combined with ‘Ami’, ‘Vamika’ is special in her own way!
Post the birth of baby Vamika, Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma were clear enough with the media and paparazzi that no story should be posted regarding their daughter, and they would provide the content as and when they feel it. So, any news of Vamika, which comes rarely, even a little one, gets viral in no time. Anushka and Vamika are in Ahmedabad to be with Virat, where he’s playing for Team India in England series. The hotel, where the team is staying in a bio-secure bubble, decided to make the players feel at home and replaced their room numbers with nameplates. For the Captain’s room, the nameplate has three names, Vamika on the top followed by Anushka and then Virat. Reportedly, the room also has personalised cushions and the key cards have local designs, featuring textiles of the state.
In March, Vamika completed two-months in this beautiful world and Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma had celebrated the special occasion in the sweetest way possible (literally). Anushka had posted a glimpse of the celebration, a multi-tier cake decorated with blue-icing, stars, clouds and rainbow on the top and it seemed to have a blueberry filling. Anushka had written, "Happy 2 months to us!" atop it. Virat had then posted a mushy picture with Anushka, showering her with love and a hug. Virat had simply captioned the picture with a heart emoji, which was enough to speak volumes about his love and admiration for Anushka.

In an interaction on Forbes India Leadership Awards 2021, the newbie father, Virat Kohli had expressed his feelings on becoming a father, “It’s been an amazing, amazing time. Ever since I came back from Australia, just to be able to be present for the birth of our daughter was something that is very difficult to explain in words something that I will cherish it for the rest of my life. I would not have missed it for anything in the world. Unless you are there, you cannot understand the impact it has on you as a human being to witness the life being born and your own child, it’s something magical.”
Speaking about helping Anushka Sharma with the chores of their daughter, Vamika, Virat Kohli had continued, “When you are fully committed and fully tuned in for doing the responsibilities of becoming a parent, I don’t think anything seems that difficult. I had to leave after 17-18 days. But I understand how things are and I would have loved to be right beside Anushka for the time that I was away. But now the family is with me, so I’m helping wherever I can. Once you are in that space, I don’t think seems like that difficult, so I am just relishing and enjoying every moment of it.” (Also Read: Kareena Kapoor Khan Posts A 'My Men In A Frame' Picture, Taimur Ali Khan Looks Adorable As Chef Tim)
Isn’t it a sweet gesture by the hotel staff to make the players feel at home despite staying in a bio-secure bubble?
