New Delhi: Indian all-rounder Hardik Pandya, who was blessed with a baby boy on July 30, shared the first full picture of his son on Twitter on Saturday. On Thursday, the Indian all-rounder took to social media to break the news that his partner had given birth to a baby boy.
“We are blessed with our baby boy,” Pandya wrote alongside an image of the new-born baby. The couple had announced in May that they are expecting while revealing their engagement in January 2020. The couple got congratulatory messages from everywhere after the announcement.
Over the past few months, Hardik and Natasa Stankovic had shared many pictures of the latter’s pregnancy. Hardik had announced the news of his engagement with girlfriend Natasa Stankovic on January 01, 2020. While the entire country went in the lockdown mode due to the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, Hardik and Natasa revealed the news of them expecting their first child.
The sports fraternity was quick to send their wishes to Pandya and Natasa on social media. “Congratulations you both,” India captain Virat Kohli commented on Pandya’s Instagram post. KL Rahul, who is known as one of Pandya’s better friends from the Indian team drew a series of heart smileys on the post. It was followed by a series of heart, hugs and kisses smileys from Yuzvendra Chahal. Shreyas Iyer also posted a couple of heart smileys.
Australia start cricketer Chris Lynn and India tennis star Sania Mirza also extended their congratulations, alongside Pandya’s brother Krunal.
Pandya missed out on months of cricket last year after suffering a back injury that forced him to get a surgery done. The India cricketer was set to make a return in March in the ODI matches against South Africa, but the series was cancelled due to rising cases of Covid-19.
Pandya will make a return for Mumbai Indians this year when the Indian Premier League kicks off in September in the UAE.
