Sania Mirza tied the knot with the former captain of Pakistan cricket team, Shoaib Malik on April 12, 2010, and after 8 years of marital bliss, Sania and Shoaib stepped into the new phase of their lives with the arrival of their little munchkin. Sania and Shoaib welcomed their 'Baby Mirza Malik', a baby boy on October 30, 2018.
Sharing this amazing news with their fans, Shoaib took to his Twitter handle and tweeted, “Excited to announce: Its a boy, and my girl is doing great and keeping strong as usual #Alhumdulilah. Thank you for the wishes and Duas, we are humbled #BabyMirzaMalik”.
Sania’s little sister, Anam Mirza too shared a lovely caricature on her Instagram handle, announcing that she is now a khaala. She wrote, “It’s a boyyyy!!!! Alhamduilllllaaahhhh!!! @mirzasaniar @realshoaibmalik #babymirzamalik 30.10.18”.
Sania’s father, Imran Mirza shared the news of their promotion from being mamma and baba to nana and nanni, on his Instagram handle. The caricature that he shared had, “#babymirzamalikishere”, “It’s a boy!” and “Mamma and Baba have been promoted to Nana and Nanni”, written on it. Here’s the picture:

Sania Mirza's close friend, Neeti Mohan too wished the newbie mommy on Instagram and wrote, "It's a BOY!!! Angel #BabyMirzaMalik is here! Many many congratulations Khaala @anammirzaaa Mommy @mirzasaniar Daddy @realshoaibmalik. Cant wait to meet you all and hold the Baby in my arms. What wonderful news to wake up to. Yay".
Prior to Shoaib Malik's announcement on Twitter, his manager and agent, Ameem Haq, had tweeted, "#BabyMirzaMalik boy is here. Baby and mother are all smiles, the dad is over the moon."
Earlier when Sania attended the UN Women India's launch of #MujheHaqHai campaign event, she revealed that people come up to her and pray that she should be blessed with a baby boy. Elaborating on this, Sania shared, “Now I’m pregnant and every time I meet someone, the first thing that people say is they would pray that I am blessed with a baby boy but I request them not to do this and if they want to pray for me, pray for a girl child instead, why are you praying for a boy child? That is the sort of mindset that we grow up with consciously or subconsciously.”
When Sania was asked whether they have shortlisted any names for the 'Baby Mirza Malik', she replied, “We have, mutually, shortlisted the names without a battle!” She further added that they are least bothered by the gender of their baby, “And obviously if it is only my child, I would hope, pray and wish for it to be a healthy child. It doesn't matter if it is a boy or a girl, which seems to be very important for a lot of people. Besides that, to believe in yourself and always know that you have the freedom to be whoever you are. At this point, with regard to my baby, all I truly hope, pray and wish is, for it to be healthy, regardless of the gender.”
Sania revealed how she is preparing for the upcoming sleepless nights and changing diapers of their child. She went on to say, “I have already spent quite a few sleepless nights due to the discomforts I feel during the third trimester of pregnancy, though changing diapers may be a new chore which I am actually looking forward to!” She went on to say, “I think motherhood prepares one automatically and very naturally for the most important phase in a woman’s life. A lot has changed in the last few months and I know a lot more will change in the coming days, but most of it has happened without me making too much of a conscious effort.” (Also Read: Mom-To-Be Sania Mirza Misses Shoaib Malik, Asks Him To Be Back Clean-Shaven, See What He Does)
