Mahendra Singh Dhoni and Sakshi Singh Dhoni met in 2008, where the latter was interning at Taj Kolkata and the former was a guest. Even though Dhoni and Sakshi knew each since their school days, when they attended DAV Shyamalin School in Ranchi, it was in 2008 when the former tried to woo the girl of his dreams. Dhoni and Sakshi kept their relationship under the wraps as it was only in 2010 when the world came to know about the lovebirds. Sakshi and Dhoni tied the knot on July 4, 2010, in Dehradun, with their family and a few close friends attending the ceremony.
On March 20, 2019, Mahendra Singh Dhoni and Sakshi Singh Dhoni completed eleven years of togetherness and we can’t help but adore how gorgeous they look with each other. Sakshi shared on her Instagram handle, a ‘hugsie’ photograph with her husband, Dhoni and it will make you go, ‘awww'! She captioned her post as, “11 years” followed by heart!
Do you know, Sakshi Singh Dhoni is the third most important thing in ‘Captain Cool’, Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s life? But who are the other two? The cricket star had stated in an interview, “I love my country. I tell my wife she is only the third most important thing after my country and my parents, in that order. The point is that while I am an Indian cricketer, I will devote myself to that cause. Cricket is not everything, not by any means, but it is a large part of who I am. Therefore, I want to play in all formats of the game and to play as much as possible because before long it will be over. Then I’ll focus more on the Army!”
Stating that Sakshi Singh Dhoni is the ‘spark in his life’, Mahendra Singh Dhoni was quoted as saying, “Sakshi provides the spark I might sometimes need. Jokes aside, she is the person to whom I have a reference. She is both loving and inspirational. Sometimes she travels with me, but cricket is easier without having to ensure her safe passage. One day, we will see the sights together and she says that then, can she please move to number two on the list of my priorities! But for the moment I am here to play cricket. I have been given this honour to play for my country so I want to see it through.” (Also Read: Abhishek Bachchan's Unseen Picture With Shweta Bachchan From Teenage Will Give You 90's Nostalgia)
Mahendra Singh Dhoni and Sakshi Singh Dhoni embraced parenthood with the arrival of their little angel, a baby girl in 2015, whom they named Ziva Singh Dhoni. Dhoni and Sakshi’s Instagram accounts are flooded with their daughter, Ziva Dhoni’s photos and videos, and this dollop of cuteness reigns our hearts too.
In a throwback interview, Dhoni shared that Ziva has changed him as a person. Speaking about fatherhood, Dhoni had stated, "I don't know whether it has changed me as a cricketer, as a person yes of course because daughters are very close to their fathers. In my case the problem is when she (Ziva) was born I was not there (three years ago), most of the time I was playing cricket, so everything bad somehow is thrown at me (to deal with)."
Sometime back, Sakshi Singh Dhoni took to her Instagram and posted photos of her husband, Mahendra Singh Dhoni, down on his knees and helping his wife to buckle her shoes. Sakshi teasingly captioned it, "You paid for the shoes so you tie them too!" Just as their fans getting over what a great man Dhoni is, within a few hours, Sakshi uploaded another set of pictures of her hubby helping her to put on a bracelet that he bought her. She captioned this one, "You paid for the band so you screw it too." Aren’t they relationship goals?
