Indian all-rounder Hardik Pandya and his better half Natasa Stankovic were blessed with a baby boy on July 30, 2020. Pandya shared the news of him becoming a father on his official Instagram handle. He had posted an adorable photo of him holding the hand of his newborn.
Wishes have been pouring in for the first-time parents Natasa and Hardik from all over the world. Indian cricket team captain and a close friend Virat Kohli was among the first ones to congratulate the couple on this blessed occasion. Responding to the photo of his baby boy posted by Hardik, Kohli wrote, “Congratulations to you both.”
Earlier this year, Hardik had announced his engagement to Natasa on social media. The two had gotten engaged in a private ceremony on January 1, 2020. Later in the month of May, the flamboyant all-rounder had revealed the delightful news of him and Natasa expecting a baby.
Hardik had posted, “Natasa and I have had a great journey together and it is just about to get better. Together we are excited to welcome a new life into our lives very soon. We’re thrilled for this new phase of our life and seek your blessings and wishes.”
Indian cricketers extend their wishes to the new parents
Along with the Indian skipper, a plethora of cricketers congratulated Hardik and Natasa for welcoming a baby boy in their life. Cricketers like Shikhar Dhawan, KL Rahul, Yuzvendra Chahal, Kuldeep Yadav, Hanuma Vihari and many more extended their warm wishes to the newborn and the parents.
Indian opening batsman Shikhar Dhawan wrote, “Congratulations my brother @hardikpandya7 on the birth of your son! Lots of love to Natasa, the beautiful boy and you. Hope everyone is healthy,
BCCI also welcomed the junior Hardik Pandya by a heartfelt comment. BCCI said in the post, “Congratulations to the couple and a warm welcome to Pandya Jr.”
On the professional front, Hardik would be soon resuming his cricket duties as the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has decided to host the 13th edition of the Indian Premier League from September 19 to November 8 in the United Arab Emirates (UAE). This means that Hardik won’t be getting much time to spend with his newborn as he would be joining Mumbai Indians for their 2020 session.
