The couple had tied the knot in Italy in 2017. On their third wedding anniversary, Anushka shared a photograph on her verified Instagram account where she can be seen hugging Virat from behind. “3 years of us & very soon, 3 of us. Miss you,” the actress had written on Instagram.
In fact, news about their pregnancy also emerged as one of the most liked tweets by Indians last year.
Kohli had come back from Australia after playing the first Test in Adelaide last month to be with his Bollywood actress wife and has been by Anushka’s side through the final days of her pregnancy.
Virushka had been regularly posting pictures of Anushka’s progress on social media before she went into labour. Kohli even helped Anushka with her yoga routines after returning from the Australian tour.
They 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.
