Albert Schweitzer has rightly said, “Happiness is the only thing that multiplies when you share it.” When you have someone by your side throughout your journey, it makes it even more beautiful and sharing the achievements and milestones with that special someone is like a cherry on the cake. The little joys of life become more memorable and special if we have someone to share them with. If we speak about B-town, then Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma are the exemplars to define the true meaning of love. Virat and Anushka had parallelly begun their professional journeys at the same time more than a decade ago and today, they are celebrated in their respective fields. Ask any of them, anytime about their success, and the lovebirds would credit each other for the same.

Virat had a remarkable journey, professionally as well as personally. Virat’s wedding with Anushka Sharma had broken every record and since their union, we are literally overflowing with Virushka love and even today, we cannot get enough of them.

Since that day, Virushka fans had waited with bated breath to get a glimpse of Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma’s newborn daughter. The wait had finally come to an end when Anushka posted their first-ever family picture and announced the name of their newborn daughter. Anushka had captioned the post as “We have lived together with love, presence and gratitude as a way of life but this little one, Vamika has taken it to a whole new level! Tears, laughter , worry , bliss - emotions that have been experienced in a span of minutes sometimes! Sleep is elusive but our hearts are SO full. Thanking you all for your wishes , prayers and good energy.” On her post, Virat had commented, “My whole world in one frame.”
After the birth of his daughter, Vamika, Virat Kohli had expressed how it feels to be a father. To be there with Anushka Sharma when she gave birth to their first child, Vamika, Virat had taken paternity leaves and for that, he had to leave Australia after the first Test of the Border-Gavaskar Trophy. In an interaction with Times Now, when Virat was asked how he had felt while leaving for India as the birth of his child was a big occasion but his team was also in a spot of bother, he had said, “The two cannot be compared. To me, to become a father has been and will remain the greatest moment of my life. That is something that has to be experienced to understand what I am saying. The connection with the team doesn’t go away in any situation, especially when you have given everything for the team, especially for the Test team for the last six years on a daily basis. Being motivated to take Test cricket on top, take Indian cricket on top and the whole group has put in so much effort.” (Also Read: When Virat Kohli Shared Why He And Mahendra Singh Dhoni Were Scolded By Ziva Singh Dhoni For An Hour)
