Just a week ahead of the cricket World Cup, India skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni on Friday became a father after his wife Sakshi gave birth to a baby girl at a private hospital in Gurgaon. The 33-year-old cricketer became a first time father after his daughter was born at Fortis Hospital in the evening.
The baby weighs 3.7 kgs, according to the doctors. Dhoni is currently busy preparing for India’s title defence at the World Cup in Australia. Sakshi is generally seen travelling with her husband on tours but she didn’t travel with Dhoni during the Australia tour.
The baby was due in March but was born almost a month earlier exactly on schedule of the World Cup. Dhoni had tied the nuptial knot with childhood friend Sakshi Singh Rawat on July 4, 2010. Mahendra Singh Dhoni is excited with the news.
