Not surprisingly, social media exploded within a few minutes and the star couple started receiving congratulatory messages from their peers, colleagues, fans and friends from all around the globe.
The duo got married in December 2017 and did not get enough time together apart from a couple of short vacations. They spent the lockdown at their Mumbai residence. Virat Kohli is currently in Dubai for the Indian Premier League (IPL) and he might be in Australia when the baby arrives in January 2021.
A couple of months earlier, Kohli's fellow Indian cricket team star Hardik Pandya also announced that he was going to be a father for the first time. His fiancee Natasa Stankovic later gave birth to their son Agastya Pandya on 30 July 2020.
