Shikhar Dhawan is one name that needs no introduction. With numerous brilliant knocks in all forms of cricket, he has garnered a huge fan following. And with those looks to die for, the “moustache man” of the Indian cricket team has a big female fan following as well.
But, there’s much more than just good looks and great cricket skills that define this man. Well, it’s his personal life, especially his equation with his kids that makes this man all the more inspiring. Here, we bring to you some of the best moments of Shikhar Dhawan with his kids that show he is one of the best celeb dads on the block!
#1. Not a biological parent, but surely an awesome dad
Many of you might not know that Shikhar’s wife, Ayesha is around 10 years older than him. She was earlier married to an Australian businessman and has two daughters from her previous marriage, Rhea and Aliyah. Interestingly, the age gap between the cricketer and Ayesha’s elder daughter is around 15 years only. But that did not stop the young man from accepting them as his own kids. He shares a great rapport with both his daughters and they love him back as much as he does.
In fact, Shikhar was once asked in an interview about the difficulties he faced while getting along with both the kids, and here is what he said:
“It wasn't difficult at all. Joh cheez kudrat se hoti hai woh ekdum aapki zindagi mein dhal jaati hain. Meri kismet mein thi meri do betiyaan, toh woh ekdum se meri zindagi mein aa gayi. It just clicked. Today, the way they love me, I feel so fortunate.”
Wow, very few men in our society would think like that!
And for the uninitiated, Shikhar and Ayesha have a son together, whom they have named Zorawar.
#2. Wishing the special women in his life in a special way
On Women’s Day 2017, Shikhar posted this adorable picture of himself with these lovely ladies, wishing them on the occasion. What caught our attention was the caption that he’d put along with this picture. Apart from wishing his girlies, he also mentioned this:
“If You Have Openness In Your Mind, You can Always Learn So Much From Your Wife Or Kids.”
Quite thoughtful, we must say!
#3. When the proud daddy flaunted his daughter’s special skills
Nothing can match the shine that is there in a dad’s eyes when he sees his kids learning new things and doing well in life. Shikhar being no different, felt the same when he saw his younger daughter acquiring some amazing gymnastic skills. And the proud daddy made sure that the world gets to know how good a gymnast his daughter is. So, he posted this video of his princess:
#4. Simple yet love-filled moments with your kids matter the most
Looks like Shikhar Dhawan is a firm believer of the saying, “Happiness lies in the little things”. No matter how successful do you get in life, there is nothing that can ever match the pleasure of spending quality time with your loved ones. And, Shikhar makes sure he gets that quality time with his kids despite his busy schedule. Be it taking his kids for a ride to the park, getting them involved in fun activities, having a meal with them together or anything else, the cricketer does not miss a single chance to have some happy moments with his little ones.
Shikhar surely knows how to pamper his kids in the best way possible, and looks like there’s a lot that Indian men can learn from this gentleman. So ladies, do you have someone in mind who should take a lesson or two from this man? Then don’t forget to share this with him!
