Confirmed – Baby On The Way For Power Couple
MUMBAI, (IANS) – Former South Africa captain AB de Villiers has let the cat out of the bag for former India captain Virat Kohli missing the first two Tests against England, by revealing that his one-time Royal Challengers Bangalore teammate and his wife actress Anushka Sharma are expecting their second child.
“Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma (are) expecting their second child, so Virat Kohli is spending his time with his family,” AB De Villiers said in a video on his YouTube channel.
Kohli had pulled out of the first two Tests against England just before the start of the first match of the series at Hyderabad, informing skipper Rohit Sharma and the Board of Control for Cricket in India that he was withdrawing because of personal reasons.
“Virat has spoken to Captain Rohit Sharma, the team management, and the selectors and has emphasized that while representing the country has always been his top priority, certain personal situations demand his presence and undivided attention,” said the BCCI statement.
Kohli and Anushka had maintained silence and the members of the Indian team and BCCI, in the know, too maintained the secrecy. But AB de Villiers eventually spilt the beans in a video post on his YouTube channel.
“He just said ‘How are you, just need to be with my family right now’. Then I said, ‘I am doing well’. And yes, his second child is on the way, its family time, its priority in love, family and things that are important to you and if you are not true and genuine to yourself you lose track of what you are here for, what are you on earth for what is your purpose. I think most of us are here for family,” said AB de Villiers in the video.
The revelation by De Villiers set social media on fire.
