Anushka and Virat welcomed their daughter Vamika on January 11. The couple and their little one are currently in England for the World Test Championship series.

Virat also shared on Father’s Day, “Happy father’s day to all the father’s all across the world. Of all the wonderful things that God has blessed me with, being a father is by far the greatest joy and blessing . As I miss my old man this day, I also celebrate our memories together.”


Earlier, Virat shared how a child is not just dependent on a mother but also on a father. Sharing how life has been since Vamika’s birth, Virat told Danish Sait in a chat that 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,” he said.

Later, during an Ask Me Anything session on Instagram, Virat opened up on why the couple has decided to keep Vamika away from social media. “We have decided as a couple to not expose our child to social media before she has an understanding of what social media is and can make her own choice,” he said in response to a question.
