Last month, Kareena Kapoor and Saif Ali Khan announced that their second baby was on its way. Anushka Sharma and Virat Kohli are celebrating their first pregnancy, meanwhile, Hardik Pandya and Natasha Stankovic welcomed their baby boy.
Although there is some debate about whether the term extends to babies born of the lockdown or during it, social media has already dubbed these new arrivals as ‘coronial babies.’
The latest addition to this list is cricketer Zaheer Khan and his actor-wife Sagarika Ghatge, who are expecting their first child.
According to a report by Mumbai Mirror, the duo, currently in Dubai for the Indian Premier League 2020, celebrated Khan’s birthday recently. A picture from the celebration shows Ghatge donning a black dress flaunting her baby bump.
The tabloid also added that the couple’s friends confirmed the same.
Zaheer and Sagarika’s love story
Before Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma stormed the internet with their wedding, it was Zaheer and Sagarika who trended on social media for their much-awaited wedding.
The two are extremely private and maintain a low-profile. It was after their engagement post in 2017 that fans got to know about the relationship. Ghatge was seen flaunting her ring.
Interestingly, Sagarika made her Bollywood debut with ‘Chak De!’, where she dated a cricketer (played by Vivan Bathena), who never appreciated her skills. But in reality, Zaheer has always stood by her and has respected what she has done.
The common factor between the two is that they both come from Maharashtra. Sagarika in an interview revealed that Zaheer speaks more fluent Marathi than her as she was in a boarding school. while he studied at a Marathi medium school.
Zaheer and Sagarika tied the knot through registered marriage on November 23, 2018, among family and friends.
