Indian cricketer Virat Kohli and actress Anushka Sharma have pleasantly surprised everyone by revealing the arrival of their second child, a baby boy! Taking to Instagram, the couple shared a touching message announcing that Vamika’s little brother's name is Akaay. They kindly asked their fans and followers to shower their immense love and blessings to their family, while also respecting their privacy during this special time.

Anushka Sharma and Virat Kohli's note:

"With abundant happiness and our hearts full of love, we are pleased to inform everyone that on 15th February, we welcomed our baby boy Akaay & Vamika's little brother into this world! We seek your blessings and good wishes in this beautiful time in our lives. We request you to kindly respect our privacy at this time. Love & Gratitude, Virat & Anushka."

Celebrities' reactions

The lovely heartwarming news spread like wildfire on Instagram, amassing over 8 lakh likes and over 1 lakh comments within minutes. It wasn't just fans expressing their joy; a wave of congratulations poured in from celebrities like Ranveer Singh, Alia Bhatt, Sonam Kapoor, and many more. Even icons like Shweta Bachchan, Huma Qureshi, Bhumi Pednekar, and Nakuul Mehta joined the chorus of well wishes, highlighting the widespread impact of this announcement.


Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma tied the knot in 2017 and after five years, they welcomed their first child - Vamika in 2021. Now after three years they welcomed their second child - Akaay. It is no wonder, Kohli and Sharma are one of a kind in the entertainment industry, who successfully keep their privacy from paparazzi.


AB de Villiers' comment

Several rumours about Anushka Sharma's second pregnancy circulated in January after South African cricketer AB de Villiers mentioned it in a YouTube interview. However, de Villiers later apologised and clarified that the information was incorrect. Neither Sharma nor her husband Virat Kohli have officially confirmed any pregnancy news.


The couple's pregnancy announcement took the internet on fire. Fans remembered AB de Villiers' revelation comment and flooded the Instagram comments section with references to it. Some even playfully referred to the baby boy as the future captain of the Indian cricket team.
