He is dashing, he is a cricket world superstar and at the same time he a doting daddy also. The mention is of none other than Indian opener Shikhar Dhawan. Apart from his amazing performances on the field, one thing is very clear about him, and that’s his pure soul and the fact that he loves his family to the core.
Shikhar keeps travelling with the team here and there and hardly gets time to spend with his babies. Nonetheless, whenever he gets some time off from commitments, he makes it a point to live family life to the fullest.

Shikhar’s wife, Ayesha Mukherjee and their babies, Rhea, Aliyah and Zorawar Dhawan live in Australia. Just recently, Shikhar went all the way to Australia travelling for 15 hours flight to surprise his little munchkins. Yes, the cricketer himself shared a lovely video on Twitter, captioning it as, “Flew almost 15 hours to surprise my lovely children! Their reaction was completely worth it! Cannot wait to spend the coming week with my family.”

Aww! This is so lovely, no? Such doting and loving father he is. We just can’t get over the reactions of his kids. He made their day in no time! Just like any other father, Shikhar too loves his family the most. And obviously, while travelling to other countries, he misses them all. In fact, a few days back, he took to Instagram to cherish some special moments with Ayesha, Rhea, Aliyah and Zorawar Dhawan. He shared the following video and captioned it, “Best moments of my life with the best people of my life.”

To let you all know, this moustache swirling cricketer Shikhar met his Bong beauty over social media. Ayesha is 10 years older to him, who was earlier married to an Australian businessman. And basically, Rhea and Aliyah are Ayesha’s daughters from her previous marriage. And hold on! Interestingly, the age gap between Ayesha’s elder daughter and Shikhar is hardly 15 years. But nothing could stop these two lovers to fall in love, and they tied the knot on October 30, 2012, in a proper Sikh wedding style.
Shikhar has totally redefined the concept of how step-fathers are being calculated. He is so loving towards them, and their reaction in this video is proving it all. Shikhar was once quoted as saying, “It wasn't difficult at all. Joh cheez kudrat se hoti hai woh ekdum aapki zindagi mein dhal jaati hain. Meri kismet mein thi meri do betiyaan, toh woh ekdum se meri zindagi mein aa gayi. It just clicked. Today, the way they love me, I feel so fortunate.”
Shikhar Dhawan, you gave a pleasant surprise to your kids and truly made their day. Such a loving father you are!
