The couple have a daughter as well — Hinaya Heer Plaha, who was born on July 27, 2016. Geeta and Harbhajan announced that they were expecting their second baby earlier this year.
They shared a picture with their daughter Hinaya holding up a tiny T-shirt that featured the text: ‘Soon to be big sister.’ Geeta Basra shared the picture on Instagram with the caption, “Coming soon.. July 2021.”
Speaking with SpotboyE last month, Geeta said that Harbhajan has had a huge involvement in taking care of their daughter during her second pregnancy.
“He told me very clearly to rest. After he is back from IPL, he’s totally taken charge of handling Hinaya. He takes care of her bathing, waking her up for school, and getting her ready for the classes – he is hands-on! And that’s nice because he gets his time with Hinaya too as he’s not usually at home often. And now that I am in my last trimester, things get even more difficult for me, so it’s great that he is around taking care of Hinaya,” she said.
Meanwhile, Harbhajan is one of the most successful spinners in the world. He has played in 103 Tests and bagged 417 wickets. Apart from that in 236 ODIs, he has 269 wickets.
