Virat Kohli-Anushka Sharma

One of the most loved couples in the cricketing world, Anushka Sharma and Virat Kohli are expecting their first child. The Indian skipper uploaded a picture on Instagram to announce the good news while also mentioning the due date.

And then, we were three! Arriving Jan2021,” Virat Kohli wrote in the caption.

Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma tied the knot in Italy in December 2017. It’s been more than two years that the two have been together. Recently, Hardik Pandya too shared the news of becoming a father.

Both Virat Kohli and Anushka spent some quality time together in the last few months, as all the sporting activities were put to a halt due to coronavirus.

On the professional front, Anushka Sharma hasn’t done any film for a long time and was last seen in Zero opposite Shah Rukh Khan. Virat Kohli, on the other hand, has reached UAE along with other RCB squad members. He would be eager to put on a good show in the upcoming edition of IPL and bring the coveted trophy home.


Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma first met with each other during a commercial shoot for a shampoo. During an interview with American television sports reporter Graham Bensinger, Virat spoke about his first meeting with the actress. On the day, Virat met her wife for the first time, he cracked a joke which, didn’t go down too well.

The first time I met her I cracked a joke immediately. I was very nervous and that’s why I cracked a joke because I didn’t know what to do. I was standing on sets and was being all nervous and jittery. I thought I was being funny (when I cracked that joke), and I said something which wasn’t probably the right thing to say.”

She is tall and she was wearing heels (makes a gesture which isn’t too much) and she was being told that I am not that tall, I am not 6 feet plus or something… she walked in with heels and was looking taller than me and I was like didn’t you get a higher pair of heels. Then she was like ‘excuse me’ and then I was like ‘no, I am just joking’. My joke became such a weird moment for myself. I was such a fool, to be honest. She was so confident, she is on sets regularly.”

Coincidently, both Virat and Anushka made their debut their respective fields in the same year. Both met in the year 2013 and the duo, gradually, started to develop a liking towards each other.

How did Virat Kohli Propose to Anushka Sharma?

As per Virat, from the proposal to starting going out for dates, everything happened just naturally and the couple finally got married in Italy in December 2017. The duo kept the subject very confidential as Virat told about his marriage to his friends just two months before her marriage.

Virat Kohli’s marriage took place in a private ceremony in Florence, Italy. It was a private affair as only the family members and close friends were invited to the event.

It was Anushka Sharma who arranged everything related to their marriage as Virat Kohli was playing a series at that time.
