12 Jan 2021: Virat Kohli's brother issues clarification about his baby's 'first picture'

Star cricketer Virat Kohli's elder brother Vikas has clarified that a picture doing the rounds as Kohli and his wife Anushka Sharma's baby's "first picture" is a random image and does not belong to the newborn.

Vikas had posted a picture of a baby's feet on Instagram yesterday, which was widely circulated.

The celebrity couple welcomed their first child on Monday.

Here is more.

Fact: 'Not the actual picture of the baby'

"Guys let me clarify that the picture I posted yesterday to congratulate Anushka and Virat is a random picture and not the actual picture of the baby...as some media channels are reporting (sic)," Vikas posted on Instagram today.

Announcement: Kohli shared the happy news yesterday

Yesterday, Kohli took to Twitter and announced that he and Sharma have been blessed with a baby girl.

He tweeted, "We are thrilled to share with you that we've been blessed with a baby girl this afternoon. We thank you all for your love, prayers, and good wishes (sic)."

"Anushka and the baby are both healthy," added the cricket star.

Congratulations: Celebrities congratulated the couple on social media

Not just fans, but celebrities from the sports and film fraternity were also thrilled with the news.

Farhan Akhtar, Priyanka Chopra, Riteish Deshmukh, Madhuri Dixit, Hardik Pandya, Shikhar Dhawan, among others congratulated the couple on becoming parents.

"Welcome to parenthood. A big hug to the little one, who'll give you happiness like you've never experienced before," wrote Team India all-rounder Pandya.

Pregnancy: The couple had announced pregnancy last year

The couple, who got married on December 11, 2017, had announced their pregnancy amid the coronavirus-induced lockdown last year.

Calling the pandemic a weird blessing, Sharma recently stated, "Virat was around and I could keep it a secret."

The couple was often spotted outside the doctor's clinic, and heading out to grab lunch, during the pregnancy.

Work: Sharma plans to resume work soon

The 32-year-old actor, who was last seen in Zero alongside Shah Rukh Khan in 2018, is keen to be back on the sets.

Talking about resuming work after delivering her child, she had stated, "I will be back to shooting again once I deliver my first child and establish a system at home that balances my child, my home and my professional life (sic)."
