On the occasion of International Women’s Day, Virat wished the most “fiercely compassionate” woman in his life, Anushka Sharma, and also stated that Vamika will grow up to be like her mother.
Captioning the post Kohli wrote, “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. 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. And also a Happy Women’s Day to all the amazing women of the world.”
The couple welcomed their first child on January 11. The 32-year-old had flown back to India after playing the pink-ball Test against Australia for the birth of his daughter.
After the arrival of the baby, Virat and Anushka also sent a special note to media, requesting them to respect their privacy and not click pictures of their newborn child.
Anushka announced the name of the little one through an Instagram post. She wrote, “We have lived together with love , presence and gratitude as a way of life but this little one, Vamika has taken it to a whole new level ! Tears , laughter , worry, bliss – emotions that have been experienced in a span of minutes sometimes !”
