Shoaib Malik and Sania Mirza have been blessed with a healthy baby boy, the proud father revealed in a Tweet around 7am this morning; his tweet was followed with a happy thread of congratulatory messages from all his friends around the world.

The baby was born in Hyderabad, India and the mother and child are both doing well.

This is the first baby for Sania and Shoaib and the child has been trending as #BabyMirzaMalik as the parents earlier announced that the child would inherit both of their surnames. It’s chosen first name has not been announced yet.



Anam Mirza, Sania’s sister welcomed the baby with a cute Instagram post.


Filmmaker Farah Khan, who’s also one of Sania’s closest friends, was one of the first people to announce the news and congratulate the happy with the same animation. Obviously, #BabyMirzaMalik will be getting a lot of love from a lot of khalas.

Sania has been on a break from the tennis court due to an earlier surgery and then her pregnancy but she has clarified that she is aiming to be back on court for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics. We’re interested in seeing whether #BabyMirzaMalik will opt for tennis or cricket as his choice of sport. Our gut feel says cricket but then he could choose an entirely new sport to excel at. One thing for sure is that he will be super athletic!
