Virat Kohli hopes his father was still alive so he could meet his and Anushka’s child
Vamika, Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma’s kid, was born earlier this year. The batsman recently discussed his mother’s joy with the birth of her granddaughter. He also mentioned his father.
Cricketer Virat Kohli, who is married to Anushka Sharma, has admitted that he sometimes wonders what it would be like if his father were present to watch Vamika.
The Indian cricketer lost his father in 2006 owing to a cardiac arrest. Anushka and Virat welcomed their daughter Vamika earlier this year.
Virat Kohli discussed his first meeting with Anushka Sharma, his mother, and his daughter Vamika with cricketer Dinesh Karthik before of India’s Test series against England.
Dinesh asked Virat if he misses his father and how he hasn’t seen Vamika, according to a snippet of the conversation published by the batsman on Twitter.
Virat responded, “He hasn’t seen me play. Now with our daughter, I have seen the happiness on my mother’s face. You sit down and think what if he was still here.”
Speaking about his first interaction with Anushka, Virat said, “I joke around with everyone. I was joking around with her as well. She said, ‘it was the first time I saw someone around me joking about the things I have experienced as a child.’ So, that really connected.”
