Indian Batsman Rohit Sharma And Wife Ritika Sajdeh Blessed With A Baby Girl
Team India just trashed the Baggy Greens at the Melbourne Cricket Ground and went 2-1 up in the series. Led by a spirited Virat Kohli, the team have now retained the Border-Gavaskar trophy with one match to spare.
While this win is special for all the players and coaching staff, it is going to be a double celebration in the Sharma household. Yes, Rohit Sharma and his wife Ritika Sajdeh became parents for the first time yesterday. The couple were blessed with a baby girl and have been receiving congratulatory messages from cricketers and Bollywood celebrities.
Rohit has requested the BCCI for a short leave and will be returning to India to be with his family. This means he will miss the final test which will be held at the Sydney Cricket Ground from January 3 to 7. The batsman has been in top form and added 63 runs at a crucial point in the last match.
The team will expect him to be back for the ODI series as Sharma is currently one on the best players in the limited format.
Sharma had kept the news of his wife’s pregnancy under wraps, so this has come as quite a surprise to one an all. For those who don't know, Ritika was his manager and the two tied the knot in December 2015. Sajdeh has Bollywood connections as her sister, Seema, is married to Salman Khan’s brother, Sohail. Ritika's brother, on the other hand, runs an agency that manages the careers of many actors. Bunty was in the news when he was dating Sonakshi Sinha but the duo called off their relationship for unknown reasons.
The Sharmas are not the only celebrities who welcomed a child into their lives this year. Shahid Kapoor- Mira Rajput, Sania Mirza-Shoaib Malik, Neha Dhupia-Angad Bedi, and Sunidhi Chauhan-Hitesh Soni got a visit from the stork in 2018. You can read more about it here.#celebroundup
