The baby girl is one year old, and the star parents had perfectly ensured that their daughter’s face is hidden from the world to respect her privacy. While the paps were ardently following their request, on the night of January 23, 2022, the broadcasters of the India Vs South Africa cricket match shared the visuals of Vamika, which went viral on social media.
