Sachin Tendulkar, Ajinkya Rahane extend heartfelt wishes to Hardik Pandya on becoming new father

Hardik Pandya and fiance Natasa Stankovic on Thursday were blessed with a baby boy and legendary cricketer Sachin Tendulkar extended heartfelt wishes and blessings to the Pandya family.

Taking to Twitter, Tendulkar wrote: "Many congratulations to the proud new parents! May the little one tiptoe with love into your hearts & stay there forever!"

India's opening batsman Shikhar Dhawan and middle-order batsman Ajinkya Rahane also extended their wishes to the couple.

"Congratulations my brother @hardikpandya7 on the birth of your son! Lots of love to Natasa, the beautiful boy and you. Hope everyone is healthy," Dhawan tweeted.

"Congratulations to you both!!" Rahane tweeted.

The official Twitter handle of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) said "Congratulations to the couple and a warm welcome to Pandya Jr".

Pandya took to Instagram to share an adorable picture holding his newborn son's tiny hands.

The picture has received over 5 lakh likes and the comments section is filled with hearts and blessings for the new member of Pandya family. Not only fans, but also Pandya's teammates like KL Rahul, Yuzvendra Chahal, Krunal Pandya and many more showered their blessings in the comment section.

Ever since Pandya and Stankovic announced the couple are expecting their first child, their Instagram feed is filled with adorable pictures that drool 'couple goals'.

Natasa made her Bollywood debut with a dance number in the 2013 film "Satyagraha" and was later seen in films like "Action Jackson" (2014) and "Fukrey Returns" (2017). She has also appeared in the season eight of "Bigg Boss", and appeared in the video of Badshah's blockbuster track "DJ waley babu".

Earlier this year, Hardik had announced his engagement to Natasa via social media which was also a perfect beginning to a New Year for the couple.

Meanwhile, Pandya, after missing out on the Indian cricket team spot due to injuries, will make a comeback in the upcoming 13th edition of the Indian Premier League.

This year's IPL, after being postponed in March due to the ongoing coronavirus, has been rescheduled to commence between September and November in United Arab Emirates.
