The couple, who got married in 2017, already has a daughter named Vamika, who celebrated her third birthday on January 11, 2021. Kohli has consistently prioritized family commitments, as seen in 2021 when he returned home from the Australia Test series after the first match to be with Anushka during the birth of their first child.

In 2021, Kohli had withdrawn from the England Test series after the first two matches, citing personal reasons. He initially returned after the first Test in Hyderabad and won the second one in Vizag but later withdrew from the entire series. The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) supported Kohli’s decision, emphasizing the importance of family.

The couple’s announcement has garnered widespread well-wishes, and fans are eagerly sending blessings to the Kohli-Sharma family on the arrival of their baby boy.
