Virat Kohli's Daughter

Last Modified Jan 04, 2023 09:55 IST

Virat Kohli is one of the world's finest in the game, who will undoubtedly go down as one of the legends to have ever held the bat. The former Indian captain returned to form late last year, scoring his first T20I century, also his first triple figure score in more than 2 years. He won India a nail-biter against Pakistan in the ICC T20 World Cup with a brilliant fifty. He followed it up with an ODI century against Bangladesh, his first ODI ton in three years. He is now eyeing the all-important series against Australia at home which will be crucial in securing India’s chances to get through to the World Test Championship Final.

That’s pretty much a lot about Kohli’s career, but today, we look into his family, his little daughter Vamika to be precise. Virat Kohli married Anushka Sharma on 11 December 2017. Vamika Kohli was born on 11 January 2021. Virat Kohli had stepped down from National duty to be with his wife during the birth of his child. Vamika was seen cheering her dad Virat in one of India’s matches as well where the fans got a first glimpse of Virat and Anushka’s daughter.

Indian national cricket team captain, Virat Kohli welcomed his first child, a daughter, into this world with actor-producer wife Anushka Sharma on 11 January 2021 and the duo has been on cloud nine ever since.

What is Virat Kohli & Anushka Sharma's daughter's name?

The power couple of both sports and film world, Virat Kohli and Anuska Sharma welcomed their first child at the start of this year. They named their little angel, Vamika Kohli.

What is the meaning of Virat Kohli's daughter's name?

On 1 February, 2021, actor-turned-producer Anushka Sharma shared a post on IG, where she announced that she and her cricketer husband, Virat Kohli have named their first-born Vamika.

“We have lived together with love, presence, and gratitude as a way of life but this little one, Vamika ❤️ has taken it to a whole new level !” she wrote, accompanied by a lovely photo of the family of three, where fans are only given a sight of the baby’s head.

“Tears, laughter, worry, bliss – emotions that have been experienced in a span of minutes sometimes! Sleep is elusive, but our hearts are SO full ❤️,” the actor wrote while thanking everybody for their “wishes, prayers, and good energy”.

While everyone loved the post, most were curious about the little one’s name, because despite being pretty, it isn’t common. Here's what we found out: ‘Vamika’ is a Sanskrit name for Goddess Durga.

Although it has been derived from her parents’ names — the starting letter ‘V’ has been taken from Virat’s name, and the last two letters ‘ka’ has been derived from Anushka.

The name of Virat Kohli's daughter, especially, stands for strength and power. At the same time, it is an instrumental name that is bound to be prosperous for the parents including the baby herself. The name ‘Vamika’ is beautiful and indicates peace and success.

Why are there no pictures of Virat Kohli's daughter?

When it comes to celebrities, everybody desires to know everything, particularly when it comes to their children. Whilst the majority of the star kids are regularly getting photographed by the media, new parents Anushka and Virat have decided to keep their girl away from it all. The couple welcomed their daughter in January of 2021 and since then they have chosen not to show her face.

The new parents even requested the paparazzi to not click her photos as the two wanted to maintain her privacy. They had sent out a note to Bollywood paparazzi that states, "Hi, Thank you for all the love that you have given us for all these years. We are happy to celebrate this momentous occasion with you. As parents, we have a simple request to make to you. We want to protect the privacy of our child and we need your help and support.“

The announcement further reads, “While we will always ensure that you get all the content you need featuring us, we would request you to kindly not take or carry any content that has our child. We know that you will understand where we are coming from and we thank you for the same."

During the third ODI between South Africa and India on January 23 in Cape Town, the host broadcaster captured footages of Anuska Sharma, while holding Vamika Kohli in hands, cheering and clapping to celebrate Virat Kohli's fifty.

Fans and media outlets had shared the pictures of Anushka and Vamika on social media platforms and multiple websites.

The couple were unhappy with this and issued a statement just a day after the match.

"Hi guys! We realise that our daughters images were captured at the stadium yesterday and widely shared thereafter. We want to inform everyone that we were caught off guard and didn't know that the camera was on us. Our stance and request on the matter stays the same. We would really appreciate if Vamika's images are not clicked/published for reasons we have explained earlier. Thank you!"
