The birth of a baby boy named Akaay, their second kid, was announced by Indian batting sensation Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma on Tuesday, February 20.

“With abundant happiness and our hearts all of love, we are pleased to inform everyone that on 15th February, we welcomed our baby boy Akaay/àä…àä•àä¾àäï & Vamika’s little brother into this world!”

“At this wonderful time in our lives, we ask for your blessings and well wishes. At this moment, we humbly ask that you respect our privacy.”

“Gratitude & Love. Anushka Sharma posted a statement on Instagram, saying, “Virat & Anushka.”

In 2017, Kohli and Anushka Sharma got married. On January 11, 2021, the famous couple honored their daughter Vamika’s third birthday.

Notably, in 2021, Kohli put his family first. Following the opening of a four-match Test series against Australia, the then-captain returned home to be with his wife during the birth of their first child.

The Indian player had originally pulled out of the opening two Test matches against England, which India had won in Vizag and lost in Hyderabad. The Indian player would later, however, retire from the entire series, alleging personal reasons with the support of the BCCI.
