Both mother and daughter are in good health

Actress Anushka Sharma and Indian men's national cricket team captain Virat Kohli welcomed their first child, a daughter, on Monday.

Kohli made the announcement on Twitter - mother and baby are both doing well, he wrote and signed off with a request for privacy.

He tweeted: "We are thrilled to share with you that we have been blessed with a baby girl this afternoon. We thank you all for your love, prayers and good wishes. Anushka and the baby are both healthy and we are feeling beyond blessed to start this new chapter of our lives. We hope that you can respect our privacy at this time."

Married since 2017, the couple announced last August that they were expecting a baby. They wrote on their respective social media accounts, "And then we were three! Arriving Jan 2021."

Virat Kohli, who was on tour with the team in Australia, returned to India after the first Test, as BCCI granted him paternity leave upon request. He has been by the side of his wife Anushka Sharma since then, reports the Indian Express.
