Virat Kohli on fatherhood

Recently, the Indian Captain, who became a father of a baby girl in January 2021, opened up about fatherhood and how it has “drastically” changed things in his life.

Ahead of the Indian Premier league (IPL), Kohli sat down for an interview with the comedian Danish Sait, where he spoke about the life-changing event and fatherhood.

“Just to see your child smile, it can’t be put in words. It’s just been such a blessed and amazing period,” he said.

 

The buzz over paternity leave

Virat Kohli, in the very beginning of this journey, took an unconventional step of taking paternity leave while the Indian team was on a tour Australia. However, the nation was divided over the subject as a major faction questioned his decision to “skip national duty”, while the others praised his decision.

Since Kohli’s decision stirred up the public, he had to make his stance clear in an announcement shared by the BCCI on Twitter.

“I wanted to be back home in time to be with my wife for the birth of our first child and it is a very very special and very very beautiful moment in our lives and something I truly want to experience,” the skipper said.

During an interaction on Forbes India Leadership Awards 2021, the Indian skipper spoke up prior to the birth of his first child and declared he’ll cherish this experience for the rest of his life.

“I would not have missed it for anything in the world. Unless you are there, you cannot understand the impact it has on you as a human being to witness the life being born and your own child, it’s something magical,” Kohli, who chose to go on paternity leave after the first Test of the Border-Gavaskar Trophy.

The journey of parenthood

However, the couple have been tracing their journey on social media ever since they announced their pregnancy in January 2020.

On International Women’s day this year, Kohli wished the “most fiercely, compassionate and strong woman” in his life, Anushka Sharma in an Instagram post. Along with a picture of his wife and daughter, Vamika, he posted a heartfelt message about the “birth of a child”.

“Seeing the birth of a child is the most spine chilling, unbelievable and amazing experience a human being can have. After witnessing that, you understand the true strength and divinity of women and why God created life inside them,” he wrote.

“It’s because they are way stronger than us men. Happy Women’s Day to the most fiercely, compassionate and strong woman of my life and to the one who’s going to grow up to be like her mother,” he further added.

Indian actor Anushka Sharma and Cricketer Virat Kohli welcomed their daughter Vamika on January 11 this year.

“We are thrilled to share with you that we’ve been blessed with a baby girl this afternoon. We thank you all for your love, prayers, and good wishes. Anushka and the baby are both healthy and we are feeling beyond blessed to start this new chapter of our lives,” Virat Kohli wrote in a post, sharing the news with fans and followers.
