Children bring out the best in us and we love spending time with them. They manage to bring a smile on our faces with their carefree laughter and never-ending questions. From dada-dadi to nana-nani, they become the apple of everyone’s eyes. Indian tennis star, Sania Mirza and Pakistani cricketer, Shoaib Malik’s baby boy, Izhaan Mirza Malik is not just the aankhon ka taara of the Mirza-Malik family, but also enjoys a huge fanbase just like his star parents.

It was on October 30, 2018, when Sania Mirza and Shoaib Malik had embraced parenthood and had welcomed ‘Baby Mirza Malik’ into their lives. A few months before delivering her firstborn, Sania had attended the UN Women India's launch of #MujheHaqHai campaign event, wherein she had revealed that their child won’t just take his/her father’s family name (i.e. Malik) forward but will have ‘Mirza Malik’ as the surname. Izhaan’s pictures are a visual treat and just like his parents, the little munchkin too enjoys a huge fan following.
Izhaan Mirza Malik is having a gala time in Dubai with his parents Shoaib Malik and Sania Mirza and the doting parents have been sharing glimpses of their little boy. On December 22, 2020, Shoaib took to his IG stories and shared an adorable picture with his baby boy, Izhaan from one of their outings. Dressed in a white t-shirt and denims, Izhaan looked adorable in his abba’s arms. Sharing the cute father-son moment, Shoaib wrote, “Hanging out with my favourite little boy!” atop it.
The first time, Shoaib Malik and his star wife, Sania Mirza had announced the news of their pregnancy in their own unique way, we all were curious about the baby’s surname, which comprised of both of the parent’s surname, ‘Mirza Malik’. Speaking about the same in a 2018 interview with Gulf News, the star cricketer was quoted as saying, “We discussed this in the beginning and we both came up with it together. It’s not a move, but a statement. My family history and my family name comes with a lot of honour, which I celebrate with pride. It should be the same for Sania. Being a husband or a wife or a mother or a father should not change that for either. Having a shared surname is in line with how we went about when we got married: Sania Mirza remained Sania Mirza and was not changed to Sania Malik.” (Also Read: New Mom, Puja Banerjee Turns Her 9 Weeks Old Son, Krishiv Into A Santa Claus Ahead Of Christmas)
On October 30, 2020, Izhaan Mirza Malik had turned 2 and his parents, Sania and Shoaib had hosted a birthday bash for their baby boy. Sania had shared a glimpse of his cakes and they were adorable, as one was a car shaped cake and the other was designed exactly like a cricket field with a huge ball in the middle of it. Izhaan’s customised cakes were quite unique, just like the little wonder. Other pictures were posted on Izhaan’s official IG handle, where in one of the pictures, the birthday boy had posed with his sipper amidst his birthday balloons and in the other picture, little Izzi was busy peeping into his abba's phone.
To make Izhaan Mirza Malik’s birthday extra-special, his doting 'amma', Sania Mirza had posted a candid click of little Izhaan and a family picture and had poured her heart out in a long note, wishing him on his birthday. Sania had written, "Happy birthday to this boy who lights up my world, who is my world and who changed my world. We love you much, my baby boy. You give us so much unconditional love, happiness laughs and cuddles that it fills up our heart. May Allah guide you and give you everything you wish forever. We love you more than anything or anyone in this world. @izhaan.mirzamalik." Shoaib Malik had also taken to his IG handle and had shared a picture of his 'whole world' in one frame. In the picture, we could see Shoaib Malik sitting with his wife, Sania Mirza and their little goofball, Izhaan Mirza Malik posing for a perfect family click. Shoaib had captioned the picture as "Feeling complete with my own, little world!" (Also Read: Alia Bhatt Finally Reveals When She Will Get Married Amidst 2021 Wedding Rumours With Ranbir Kapoor)
