Indian cricket team captain Virat Kohli and Bollywood actress Anushka Sharma are expecting their first child and this delightful announcement has sent the internet into a meltdown. The soon-to-be parents are expecting the birth of their newborn in the month of January next year.

The love story of the Indian skipper and Bollywood diva is something that has kept the fans fascinated over the years. The couple had first met on an advertisement set while shooting for a Shampoo brand back in 2013. Virat and Anushka, lovingly called as Virushka by their fans, then dated for four years before formally tying the knot in a private ceremony in the presence of their close friends and family in Florence, Italy in December 2017.

Both Anushka and Virat had made this big announcement regarding the arrival of their little one through their respective social media handles. The duo had shared a picture where Anushka can be seen flaunting her baby bump while wearing a black and white polka dot dress as she posed with her cricketer beau.

They captioned the picture as, “And then, we were three! Arriving Jan 2021”
