In a statement regarding the same, Kohli wrote: “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.”

Ever since the announcement, Anushka Sharma has been sharing her thoughts about this new journey in life. She had shared a photo flaunting her baby bump and captioned the picture as, “Nothing is more real & humbling than experiencing creation of life in you. When this is not in your control then really what is?”

In an interview with Vogue, Anushka said how she only ate toast and crackers during her first trimester. She had said, “I was eating only toast and crackers for the first three months. So, when it ended, I wanted to eat vada pao and bhel puri, but that didn’t last long either.” Further, the actor mentioned how she and her husband Virat do not want to “raise a child in the public eye”.
