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