CONGRATULATIONS! It’s A Boy For Shoaib Malik & Sania Mirza.
IndoPak peace at-hand as the subcontinental couple welcome their first child!
Cricketing legend Shoaib Malik and his Tennis superstar wife Sania Mirza were blessed with a baby boy on Tuesday.
Sania delivered the child early Tuesday morning, in her hometown of Hyderabad India. Both mother and child are doing well. Malik revealed the happy news on Twitter:
His manager Ameem ul Haq described his state as “over the moon”:
#BabyMirzaMalik 👼🏼 boy is here! Baby and mother are all smiles, the dad is over the moon 🙏🏼— Ameem Haq (@AmeemHaq) October 30, 2018
Sania’s sister Anam Mirza took to SnapChat to share the happiness.
Shoaib and Sania haven’t revealed the baby’s name yet. However, they had already announced that his surname will be Mirza-Malik. Speaking at the Goa Fest 2018, Sania had shared: “I have not changed my surname (post marriage) and my name is still Sania Mirza and it will remain that way. The family name is going to go forward.” How awesome is that?
The couple had gotten engaged in 2009. They tied the knot in a traditional Hyderabadi Muslim wedding ceremony on April 12, 2010. Sania Mirza and Shoaib Malik announced they were pregnant in April 2018.
Since Malik’s announcement, congratulatory messages from their well-wishers soon started flooding social media:
We wish Sania bhabhi and Shoaib the absolute best in this exciting new chapter of life.
