Cricketers of India are our pride, no two-ways about it! Their performance determines our country’s respect. Indian cricketers are greatly valued in the country, and why wouldn’t they? Have you seen the hard work they put in to ensure that there are no sighs and gasps when you watch a match?

Speaking about Indian cricketers, out of the many gemstones that we have, who is that one captain that you really adored? Undoubtedly, Mahendra Singh Dhoni, right? From a superb cricketer, to an amazing team leader, a loving husband and a doting daddy, Mahi is all in one! Apart from being everyone’s favourite, there is one more person who equally shares the popularity and fame that Mahi does. Guess who we are talking about.
His adorable 3-year-old munchkin, Ziva Dhoni! The ‘oh-so-adorable’ cutie rules through netizens’ heart and her father’s Instagram account like a pro! If you happen to check Mahi’s Instagram account, it is loaded with pictures and videos of his little princess, Ziva. In a recent Instagram video that our former ‘Captain Cool’ had posted, Ziva who probably had just returned from her school was playing with her mommy and daddy with tri-coloured balloons and apparently was angry with her daddy too, which she had forgotten! Here, check out the super-adorable video:
But we have something cuter in store for you. Ziva, who has recently started going to school was seen engrossed in making rangolis along with her classmates. Also shared below, are a couple of inside pictures from her school. Check them all out and don’t tell us that we didn’t give you a cuteness alert in advance!
Even if for a 3-year-old kid, Ziva can give anyone a run for her fashion statement! At Poorna Patel’s sangeet ceremony on July 19, 2018, Ziva totally killed it with her orange and white lehenga-chunni, which she paired with a pair of white sneakers. And not just this, the munchkin shook a leg with her mommy and others at the party to Enrique Iglesias’s, Bailando and Rihanna’s, Work Work. Take a look at the video:
Indian’s ‘Captain Cool’ got married to his love, Sakshi on July 4, 2010. There’s is a magical love story as all of you must have seen in Dhoni’s biopic. In case you have missed it, read it here. The gorgeous couple welcomed their baby daughter, Ziva, on February 6, 2015. On being asked about embracing fatherhood, Dhoni had once shared in an interview, “Your life does change with the kind of smile the baby gives you. She doesn’t care whether I play for my country or play for a good franchisee like Chennai. She wants to cry, she cries. It gives a very good feeling.” Here as well, the captain gave some serious fatherhood goals!
Dhoni wasn’t around in India when Ziva was born. The doting daddy had shared his sadness on the same and stated in an interview, “When she was born I was not in India, had not seen her. It was a tough period. Your life does change with the kind of smile the baby gives you. She doesn't care whether I play for my country or play for a good franchise like Chennai. She wants to cry, she cries”. (Don't Miss! Ziva Dhoni, Gracia Raina And Hinaya Heer Plaha 'Fall Down' To Ringa-Ringa-Roses; Video Inside)
The Dhoni family is truly the best! However, we do give some extra credit to Ziva for being the dollop of sugar that she totally is!
