Former left-arm pacer Wasim Akram became a father for a third time on Sunday as he and his wife Australia Shaniera Akram welcomed, Aiyla Akram, a baby girl.
The news was announced by Akram’s manager, Arsalan H Shah, in a Facebook post early on Sunday.
The manager also shared the picture of the baby girl.

Akram, who has two sons from his first wife, had announced in September that he and Shaniera were expecting their first child together. They are currently in Australia.
They had also sought suggestions for baby names on Twitter.
Having married Shaniera last August, Akram had told Hindustan Times earlier in December that he was excited to become a father again.
“I think I’ll enjoy fatherhood more this time around; when my sons were born, I was travelling a lot for cricket.”
