When asked about his wife Priyanka in an interview, Raina said, “I have known Priyanka for long, but in the middle, I didn’t have to be in touch with her. I remember meeting her at the airport for five minutes in 208. She was flying back to Holland (where she currently works) and I was going to Bangalore for an IPL game, and we met at the Delhi Airport for just five minutes. Usse pehle main usse bachpan mein mila tha.”

In one of his interviews, Raina spoke of his marriage with Priyanka being an arranged one, “ Priyanka’s father was my sports teacher in Ghaziabad and my mom was very close to her mother. I’ll call it more of an arranged marriage because our families have known each other for a long time”.

Further stating about his marriage with Priyanka, Raina said, “ I didn’t know. Mom called me in Australia and told me that my marriage has been fixed with one of my childhood friends. Maina kaha kaun hai. Then I spoke to Priyanka on the phone. Before the Word Cup, I had told some of my teammates about my wedding after my mom told me that everything had been finalized.”

Priyanka is a mother of two kids. She first gave birth to a daughter named Gracia and then a son named Rio. Priyanka has close to 1 million followers on Instagram. She had appeared on The Kapil Sharma Show with her husband Suresh Raina.
