Shoaib Malik, Sania Mirza expecting their first baby

Indian tennis star Sania Mirza and Pakistani cricketer Shoaib Malik are expecting their first child.

Mirza and her husband, former Pakistan cricket captain Shoaib Malik, posted a picture on their Twitter accounts of a baby vest and a feeding bottle between two T-shirts bearing their names.

It was accompanied by the hashtag #BabyMirzaMalik.


The three-time Grand Slam doubles winner had said earlier this month that any child she had would bear the Mirza-Malik surname and that Shoaib wanted a daughter.

While star cricketer Shoaib Malik said, “We are obviously very excited to enter this new phase of our lives. We have been thinking about it for a while and look forward to our journey as parents InshaAllah. When we found out we were ecstatic, needless to say, our families are overwhelmed and super happy and we wanted to share this amazing news with all our fans and well-wishers,” said Malik.
