While we aren’t sure how the remaining months of 2020 are going to be, but what we are sure of is that 2021 will bring in some amazing news for us! To begin with, January 2021 will delight us with junior Virushka and a few months from then, we will have Taimur Ali Khan’s little sibling to dote on! We couldn’t be happier for Anushka Sharma-Virat Kohli and Kareena Kapoor Khan-Saif Ali Khan and our excitement knows no bound as we will have two little ones soon in the list of the most adorable star kids of B-town.

Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma had announced their pregnancy on social media with a picture that features the mommy-to-be flaunting her baby bump as the parents-to-be are all smiles for the camera. Both Anushka and Virat are glowing in the picture they’ve posted to announce that in January 2021, their family will have a super-cute addition. Virat and Anushka had captioned the post as “And then, we were three! Arriving Jan 2021.”
While we are ecstatic with the news of junior Virushka arriving soon, we are wondering how Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma had managed to keep their pregnancy under the wraps for months. Neetu Chandra of Garam Masala fame, who stays in the same building as Anushka’s parents, revealed in an interview with the TOI that she had a hint that the 32-year-old actress might be pregnant. Neetu said, "I had seen Anushka downstairs a couple of weeks back. I felt she was pregnant." When asked how she guessed it, Neetu replied, "Well, Anushka was glowing." Speaking of her equation with Anushka’s parents, Neetu remarked, "I am close to aunty and uncle. They are such genuine people." She continued, "A big congratulations to Anushka and Virat and their families as well. I am very happy for them."
Anushka Sharma had flaunted her cute baby bump and pregnancy glow in a black summer dress with white polka dots on it. And Virat Kohli had kept it simple, complementing his wife in a simple grey cotton tee and white pants. If you’re wondering how Virat and Anushka had managed to keep the pregnancy a secret for so long, a family friend of the couple answered the same in an interview with the the Etimes. The source said, “This pregnancy is easily the best kept secret to come out of Bollywood in a really long time. The immediate families knew of it but they had to swear to secrecy and ensure that no one out of their group got a whiff of it.” (Also Read: Is Anita Hassanandani Pregnant?

How lockdown and distancing herself from her entourage of 5-6 people and staff helped Anushka Sharma and Virat Kohli in keeping the pregnancy a secret, the source added, “Anushka has always been a very private person. She takes her personal space very seriously. So, she was extremely careful about not letting anyone see her or get any information about her pregnancy.” Virat and Anushka had laughed off the reports as mere speculation when some of their friends had tried to be nosey. The source continued, “They simply laughed it off as mere speculation and didn’t really want to add any fuel to the fire. Even a few actors and producers who are really close to Anushka were told that these are rumours.”
While Anushka Sharma hasn’t signed any projects as an actor since Zero (2018), she had ventured as a producer and had made her digital debut with Paatal Lok and Bulbbul. Anushka not signing any film had also become a reason for the gossip mills to churn her pregnancy speculations in 2019. Despite Anushka refuting such reports every now and then, the conjectures regarding her pregnancy never faded away from the headlines in the media. And now, we are ecstatic with the news of Virushka’s pregnancy and we can’t wait for more peek into Anushka’s journey to motherhood.
