Anushka and star cricketer Kohli tied the knot on December 11, 2017 in Italy. The duo was blessed with Vamika on January 11, 2021. The couple was tight-lipped about their second pregnancy.

Kohli had initially withdrawn from the first two Tests of the five-match series against England due to personal reasons. He was then ruled out of the remaining three Tests.

As was the case when Vamika was born, the couple requested everyone to respect their privacy at this time.

As soon as the couple dropped the good news, fans and members from the film industry and cricket world flooded the comment section with good wishes.

Legendary cricketer Sachin Tendulkar congratulated the India batting talisman and Bollywood actress and said that it was a "precious addition" to their "beautiful family".

He took to his official X (formerly Twitter) account, and hoped that the arrival of 'Akaay' would fill their lives with "endless joy and laughter".

Actor Ranveer Singh posted a string of 'evil eye' and heart emojis in the comment section.

Kareen Kapoor Khan, Alia Bhatt, Sonam Kapoor, Karisma Kapoor, Dia Mirza, Rakul Preet Singh were among the hundreds of well wishers.
