The year 2021 turned out to be a life-changing experience for Indian cricketer, Virat Kohli and his actress-wife, Anushka Sharma as they hopped on their parenthood journey. Since the birth of their angel, Virat and Anushka's life has been revolving around their princess, and they often share glimpses of their new life. Now, in a recent interview, Virat Kohli opened up on his new role of being a daddy to his little princess, Vamika Sharma Kohli.
It was on January 11, 2021, Anushka Sharma and Virat Kohli had gotten blessed with an angel and the cricketer had taken to his Instagram handle to share a picture of a note, which could be read as "We are thrilled to share with you that we have been blessed with a baby girl this afternoon. We thank you all for your love, prayers and good wishes. Anushka and the baby are both healthy and we are feeling beyond blessed to start this new chapter of our lives. We hope that you can respect our privacy at this time. Love, Virat."
Recently, in an interview with Danish Salt as part of the ongoing Indian Premier League 2021, Virat talked about his fatherhood journey and nurturing his baby girl, Vamika Sharma Kohli. The cricketer shared, "Things change quite drastically. Everything you have been used to changes. You have to be totally aligned with taking care of another life that’s totally dependent on the mother primarily, but also dependent on the father. Both parents taking care of the child is a different environment altogether and something that we both (Anushka and him) have enjoyed thoroughly."
The ace cricketer, Virat further referred to his experience of being a father as life-changing. He also added, "It has been a connection which has been different from anything that both of us have experienced before. Just to see your child smile, it can’t be put in words. I can’t express how it feels from within. It’s just been such a blessed and amazing period."
On February 1, 2021, Anushka had shared the first-ever family picture on her Instagram handle. In the picture, we could see Anushka holding her daughter while Virat was adorably looking at her. Along with it, Anushka had shared her daughter's unique name in the caption, which could be read 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."
In an interview with the Vogue India, Anushka Sharma had talked about her pregnancy and had said, "You are more connected to your body, to all that is happening. It's mind-boggling when I see the changes. It’s amazing. I’ve always meditated. It's a daily practice, and my life has been quite balanced, so I’ve carried that forward. The only difference is that I’ve had a lot more time."
Well, we cannot wait to see more glimpses of Virat and Anushka's happily ever after with their baby girl, Vamika!
