A father shares a very special bond with his son as he always wishes his boy to follow his footsteps. On the other hand, a son quotes his father in his deeds and always looks up to him as an inspiration. From the first bicycle ride to the never-ending career advices, a son always knows that he has his father’s back and come may what, his ‘main man’ will always be just a phone call away. Former Indian cricketer, Irfan Pathan is a doting dad to his baby boy, Imran Pathan. (Also Read: Aly Goni And Rumoured GF, Jasmin Bhasin Wish His Sister On Her Birthday, Her Reaction Is Unmissable)

In an interview with The Times of India, Irfan Pathan had acknowledged the importance of family in his life and was quoted as saying, “I consider myself very lucky to have parents who are so grounded. Not just me, I am sure there are many cricketers in India who have that good fortune. My parents taught me well and I am fortunate for that. They taught me to be simple; not just in terms of words but also in actions. The best thing parents can do for their children is to lead by example in their actions rather than in words. My parents have done that and I’m very proud of it. This has kept me grounded and that structure at home has allowed me to stay focused, even when I achieved success. My parents, my brother and now my wife - these are the people who will be there no matter what. Wickets or no wickets, runs or no runs, they are always going to smile at me the same way, give me the same food and treat me the same. I’ve tried to keep life simple. After I play games, I come back to Baroda, my home. There are many cricketers who buy flats in Mumbai and Delhi and want to host parties, and that’s great for them, but I’ve kept my life simple.” (Also Read: Shilpa Shetty Surprises Her 'Brightest Star' Raj Kundra With Birthday Gift Worth Whopping 2.10 Lakhs)
