Virat Kohli, the Indian cricket superstar, and Anushka Sharma, the Bollywood actress, have announced the birth of their second child, a baby boy named Akaay. The couple shared the happy news on their social media accounts on February 20, 2024, and requested their fans to respect their privacy.

A Celebrity Couple with Millions of Fans

Kohli and Sharma, who are popularly known as Virushka, are one of the most famous and influential couples in India. They have a combined following of over 200 million on Instagram, where they often post pictures and videos of their personal and professional lives. They tied the knot in a private ceremony in Italy in 2017, and have since been setting couple goals for their admirers.

The couple welcomed their first child, a baby girl named Vamika, on January 11, 2021. They shared the first glimpse of their daughter on February 1, 2021, and thanked their fans for their love and support. They also revealed that they had chosen the name Vamika, which means “Goddess Durga” in Sanskrit, as a tribute to their faith and culture.

A New Addition to the Family

Kohli and Sharma announced the arrival of their second child, a baby boy named Akaay, on February 20, 2024. They posted a statement on their social media accounts, which read:

“With abundant happiness and our hearts all of love, we are pleased to inform everyone that on 15th February, we welcomed our baby boy Akaay/àä…àä•àä¾àäï & Vamika’s little brother into this world!

We seek your blessings and good wishes in this beautiful time in our lives. We request you to kindly respect our privacy at this time.

Love & Gratitude. Virat & Anushka.”

According to some sources, the name Akaay means “illuminating light of the full moon” in Hindi, and has a Turkish origin. The couple has not yet shared any pictures of their newborn son, and has asked the media and the public to refrain from invading their personal space.

Kohli’s Absence from Cricket

Kohli, who is widely regarded as one of the best batsmen in the world, has been away from cricket since January 2021, when he decided to take a break from the game to be with his wife and family. He missed the first two Tests against England, which India lost and won respectively, and then withdrew from the entire series, citing personal reasons. The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) supported his decision and granted him paternity leave.

Kohli’s close friend and former teammate AB de Villiers had hinted at the possibility of Kohli and Sharma expecting their second child in a YouTube video in January 2021, but later retracted his statement and said he did not know the exact reason for Kohli’s break. Kohli himself did not reveal anything about his personal life until he announced the birth of his son on February 20, 2024.

Kohli is expected to return to cricket in time for the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024, which is likely to begin in late March. He will be leading the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB), a franchise he has been associated with since the inception of the IPL in 2008.
