Bollywood and cricket are two of the most revered religions in India. Yes, these two are no less than any religion. Millions of fans of both the B-town celebrities and cricketers go crazy about their idols.
Now, we’ve another reason to go gaga over a celebrity cricketer. We’re talking about one of the most regular batsmen of the Indian Test cricket team and an amazing player of IPL’s Kings XI Punjab, Murali Vijay.
Murali has been blessed with his third child! Yes, the right-handed batsman announced the news on Twitter by sharing a picture of his little bundle of joy.
In the picture, his eldest child is seen holding his new brother. The expressions of both of them seem priceless. Take a look:
The happy father captioned:
“Two Rockstars!! One introducing the other to the world. Feeling Blessed #grateful #lovetoall #moretolife”
As soon as he posted this picture, his fellow teammate from the Indian cricket team, KL Rahul, congratulated him, saying:
And then, there was a spree of congratulations pouring in for Murali, from his fans.
Murali Vijay is married to Nikita Vanjara (Nikita Vijay, post-marriage). They both tied the nuptial knot in 2012, and have been enjoying their marital bliss since then. The couple is blessed with two more children- a son and a daughter.
It is to be noted here that Nikita was earlier married to another cricketer of the Indian team, Dinesh Karthik. It was a love marriage and they were childhood lovebirds. But after their divorce, she married Murali in 2012.
The news of this second marriage created lots of uproar and speculations, especially about the possibility of some on-going tiff between Dinesh and Murali.
Anyways, the good news is that Murali and Nikita enter parenthood for the third time. And we can’t stop drooling over their munchkin’s pic. We congratulate the couple with all our heart, and wish the little cotton ball all the happiness in this world.
