Earlier, Rohit had shared the first glimpse of little Samaira with his fans and captioned it as, “Well hello world! Let’s all have a great 2019.” The cricketer returned from the on-going India-Australia Test series to be with his wife and newborn daughter on December 31, 2018. He scored a half-century in the third Test match against Australia.
In an interview with Australian cricketer, Michael Clarke, Rohit talked about the life-changing moment. He said, “I cannot wait to be a father; it is going to be a game-changing moment in our lives. I am eagerly awaiting the moment of becoming a father. It will be a moment to change our lives.”
Rohit further shared his teammates’ reaction to the news and said, “When my teammates got to know that I am going to become a father, they were laughing at me. They were like you are going to be a father? The reaction came in because of the mannerism and the things I have done in my previous years. They think I am irresponsible, obviously in a funny way. But I am gonna make sure that everything changes.”
Rohit and Ritika’s love story is something that makes us believe in 'happily-ever-after'. It all started when Ritika worked as a sports event manager for Rohit and that was the start of their romance. They used to meet often and soon their work-meetings turned into love-meetings! For those who don’t know, Rohit proposed to his lady-love Ritika in one of the most romantic ways. And, yes, it included a huge solitaire ring with a full Bollywood style proposal. Rohit took Ritika to Borivali sports club ground in Mumbai, where he first started playing when he was 11. He proposed her with a big ring and asked her to marry him! Later, the two got married in a grand wedding ceremony on December 13, 2015.
In an earlier interview, Rohit recalled the first meeting when he met Ritika. He said, “I was shooting with some senior members of the Indian team including Yuvraj Singh. When I met Yuvi in his trailer, Ritika was there. But Yuvraj told me straight away that Ritika was his sister and I should not even look at her.”
The right-handed batsman, Rohit made us fall in love when he dedicated his third double century to wife, Ritika as their second wedding anniversary gift. In the post-match interview, he said, “I’m happy my wife is here with me on this special day. I know she would have liked this gift from me. She’s been my strength, she’s always been there for me. You go through so much stress in this sport, and having them around is always special.” (Don't Miss: Dilip Kumar, 96, Shares A Pic With Wife, Saira Banu, 74, Feeding Him Cake, And It's So Adorable)
