Mohammad Kaif grabbed the headlines 16 years back when India won Under-19 World Cup under his captaincy. Even though he is nowhere to be seen in the international cricket circuit from last few years, he is still remembered as one of the finest fielders Indian cricket team has ever had.

As he has always stayed away from the limelight, especially when it comes to his personal life, very few people might be aware of his short and sweet love story. And his love story has a happy ending too. So, let us take you through the beautiful love story of Mohammad Kaif and his wife, Pooja Yadav.
Kaif and Pooja met each other through some common friends at a party. Pooja used to work with an event management firm at that time. They felt an instant connect in their first meeting itself and hence decided to stay in touch. Soon after, the two started going out together frequently.
After dating each other for four years, the two decided to take their relationship to the next level. Kaif and Pooja tied the knot in an intimate ceremony on March 26, 2011, with only close friends and family members present at the do.
On February 28, 2012, the couple became proud parents to a baby boy.
And then in April 2017, there was another lovely addition to this beautiful family as Pooja and Kaif welcomed a baby girl.
Just like her husband, even Pooja always maintained a low profile. However, she came out and campaigned for Kaif when he decided to contest for Lok Sabha elections in 2014.
Explaining how understanding Kaif is as a husband, Pooja said in one of her interviews:
“I really enjoy my work and my family has always been very supportive. Kaif is very understanding and has never stopped me from working, though I took a break for two years after our son Kabir was born. He is old enough now and is a lot like his dad. He has an inclination for sports and he loves going out with Kaif early morning to the ground for practise sessions. Poora baap pe gaya hai.”
Now that’s a short and cute love story, isn’t it?
