Last year in December, Captain Kohli had chosen to take paternity leave and fly back to India from Australia where Team India was playing. The 32-year-old cricketer had left after the team suffered a humiliating loss at the hands of the hosts in Adelaide.
When Kohli had announced on August 27 that a new member joining the household, Twitterati had gone wild. His tweet, “And then, we were three! Arriving Jan 2021” with a photograph of the power couple, was retweeted close to 70K times, and was liked by over 6.4 L users.

Anushka Sharma and Virat Kohli’s baby will be called a coronial. This is because the child was conceived during the novel coronavirus quarantine period. Coronial is the term assigned to the generation conceived during this period. The babies may also be referred to as Covid-kids.
Anushka Sharma and Virat Kohli had tied the knot in December 2017 in Tuscany, Italy. Pictures from their dreamy wedding were the talk of the town that year.
Apart from Anushka and Virat, Kareena Kapoor Khan and Saif Ali Khan are also set to welcome their bundle of joy this year. The couple announced their pregnancy in August last year and will become parents for the second time.
Virushka recently had dinner with Kohli’s India teammate Hardik Pandya, his wife Natasha Stankovic and a bunch of their friends on January 1 and posted the picture on Instagram.
Kohli meanwhile, is being sorely missed by the Indian team in Australia where they are playing a series of four Test matches. The team has already seen four players – Mohammed Shami, Umesh Yadav, KL Rahul and Ravindra Jadeja.
