Sania Mirza, Shoaib Malik expecting their first child

Good news for Sania Mirza and Shoaib Malik’s fans. The tennis star is expecting her first child with husband Shoaib Malik and the mommy-to-be shared the good news in a cutest possible way on her Instargram account. She captioned the picture“#BabyMirzaMalik”.

Sania’s father and tennis coach Imran Mirza informed that the baby is due in October. Sania also said in a statement, “We are soon to become parents, Having thought about it for a while, we both felt right now is the correct time to start a family. When we found out, we were ecstatic and couldn’t wait to give out this news to our fans and well-wishers”.

Sania further added, “We are very excited to enter this new phase of our lives and look forward to our journey as parents.” While attending a discussion on gender biases in Goa Fest 2018, Sania had said, “Today I will tell you a secret. My husband and I have spoken about it and we have decided that whenever we have a child, the child will have Mirza Malik as a surname and not just Malik. So that’s where we stand as a family including my husband. He actually wants a daughter.”

She went on to say, “I have not changed my surname (post marriage) and my name is still Sania Mirza and it will remain that way. The family name is going to go forward.”

Congratulations to Sania and Shoaib!
