Shakib Al Hasan, the Bangladesh all-round cricketer, is set to become a father to a third child with wife Umme Ahmed Shishir. The duo has been staying together in the United States of America from the month of March 2020 ever since the COVID-19 pandemic started wreaking havoc all around the world. Having not played international cricket for over 15 months, he has had a tough time of late.
However, in the first half of the year, the duo gave birth to their second child and named her Errum Hasan. Shakib’s first child is Alaina Hasan Abri, who was born back in 2015. Shakib tied the knots with Shishir back on November 2012 and from there on, there bonding has only strengthened. The duo first met in England when the Magura-born Shakib was on duty for county cricket.
As far as their third child is concerned, Shakib posted an adorable picture when he was seen kissing Shishir’s baby bump. The affection in Shakib’s eyes for his better-half was pretty palpable when he was planting the kiss with his eyes closed.
The veteran captioned the picture and wrote, “New year, new beginning, new addition. Happy new year to everyone,”
Here’s Shakib’s post-

Shakib Al Hasan having a tough time
Apart from his personal life, Shakib’s professional career has also seen a roller-coaster ride. Back in November, he made his comeback to professional cricket when he turned out for the Gemcon Khulna in the inaugural edition of the Bangabandhu T20 Cup. He was a tad out of form to start with but gained momentum as the tournament went by.
He couldn’t take part in the final as he flew back to the USA to be with his father-in-law, who passed away last month. Shakib also lost another of his relatives. In the meantime, even without Shakib not being in the team, the Khulna team won the final, beating the Gazi Group Chattogram, captained by Mohammad Mithun at the Sher-e-Bangla Stadium.
Bangladesh would be playing a home series against the West Indies and it remains to be seen if Shakib makes his comeback for the Tigers in the series or not. He came to Bangladesh earlier this year for the tour of Sri Lanka but returned to the USA after the tour was cancelled/postponed.
