After spending half of the year away from each other, ace tennis player, Sania Mirza's son, Izhaan Mirza Malik is enjoying every second with his doting daddy and Pakistani cricketer, Shoaib Malik. Recently, we spotted Izhaan chilling in the pool with his father, Shoaib. Sania and Shoaib were the happiest when they had embraced their parenthood journey. It was on October 30, 2018, Sania Mirza and Shoaib Malik were blessed with a baby boy, whom they have named, Izhaan Mirza Malik.
Sania Mirza and Shoaib Malik had once revealed the story behind their son's middle name. Sania, who is extremely close to her parents, had revealed in a media interaction that her son will take forward the name of 'Mirza family' too and this is the reason why she chose Mirza as her son's middle name.
Currently, Shoaib Malik is enjoying every moment with his son, Izhaan. On March 18, 2021, the cricketer took to his Instagram handle and shared a super cute picture with his son, Izhaan from the pool. In the picture, we can see Shoaib and Izhaan chilling in the pool and sunbathing. Alongside the picture, the doting daddy, Shoaib wrote, " Sun bath time with Mr. Izhaan". Check it out below:
During the lockdown, Sania had shared an adorable picture with her son, Izhaan Mirza Malik, which was clicked before one of her big matches. Alongside the picture, Sania had written a note that could be read as "My life in a picture! I wouldn’t have it any other way Allhamdulillah! This is right before we played the tie against Indonesia to make the world group playoffs for the first time @fedcuptennis. He inspires me the most to do what I do and be the best I can be."
We remember in an interview with The Indian Express, Sania had expressed her concern, wherein she had opened up on staying away from her hubby, Shoaib because of the lockdown due to the pandemic. She had stated that Shoaib was in Pakistan while she was in India, and the lockdown was difficult as they have a small child, who was missing his father. She was sceptical as to when they will be able to reunite.
Talking about the lockdown phase, Sania had opened up on staying away from her hubby, Shoaib in an interview with The Indian Express. She had said, "We are both pretty positive and practical people. He has a mother who is over 65 and by herself, so he needs to be there. So in the end, it worked out best that he was there with her. We hope we are healthy and come out of this on the right side of it."
However, the wait had gotten over as Sania had finally reunited with her hubby, Shoaib Malik in Dubai. On September 17, 2020, Sania had shared a super cute picture with her 'mister', Shoaib. In the picture, we could see Sania looking gorgeous in a white t-shirt with blue jeans and a brown-printed blazer. On the other hand, Shoaib had looked dapper in a casual ensemble. She had also posted another 'candid' picture on her IG stories and had written, "Umm, let's just say it was candid! @realshoaibmalik."
We love Shoaib and Izhaan's chilling in the pool picture!
