Being a celebrity isn’t all about glamour and fame, there are a fair amount of gym sessions as well. Amidst their chaotic hectic lives, celebrities follow ‘Sweat. Smile. Repeat’ to stay healthy and in good shape. And if they are so conscious about their health, then how can their babies stay behind. The best way to help a child learn is to not constantly telling them to do so, but to yourself do the same thing and let the child learn by watching it.

During IPL 2018, Sakshi and Ziva accompanied Dhoni for all his matches and the family of three enjoyed their quality time with each other, despite Dhoni’s busy schedules. Dhoni shared a video in which he is seen drying his tiny tot’s hair with a hairdryer and made their fans go ‘aww’ with the father-daughter bonding. Dhoni captioned the video as, “Game over, had a nice sleep now back to Daddy’s duties.” Here’s the video:
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)."
Speaking about spending time with Ziva during IPL, Dhoni was quoted as saying, "I had a wonderful time with her (Ziva), she was there for the whole of IPL and one of her biggest requests used to be I have to go to the ground, that is lawn for her. And also there are lot of kids in the team. I would get up by 1:30, 2:30 or 3 in the afternoon. Ziva is up by the time, she gets up by 8.30 or 9, have her breakfast, engage with everyone, start playing... I feel it just relaxes us a bit more when the kids are playing with each other.”
In another interview, Dhoni spoke about the fame and attention Ziva is getting at such a young age and how people always ask him about her. He remarked, “Wherever I go, people ask me about her. I am nowhere in the scene right now,” he says with a laugh. “It is always, ‘Where is Ziva?’ If she is around, ‘What is she doing?’” He went on to say, “She is so young and yet she has her own sense of character, a particular way of talking.” (Also Read: When Ziva Wanted A Hug From Her Papa MS Dhoni During An IPL Match, Watch The Video)
