Anushka Sharma and Virat Kohli became the parents of a baby girl on 11 January. Since then, fans of the couple have been waiting to catch their first glimpse of the newborn. But, Virushka, as her admirers fondly address her, wants to protect her child’s privacy and therefore has requested photographers in Mumbai not to click pictures of her daughter.
In a statement, Virat and Anushka said, “Hi, thank you for the love you have given us for all these years. We are happy to celebrate this important occasion with you. As a parent, we have a simple request from you. We want to protect the privacy of our child and we need your help and support. ‘
The couple promised to give all the ‘material’ to the paparazzi, but they urged photographers not to take any material that our child may have.
“While we will always make sure that you get all the material we need, we will request you to please do not take or carry any such material for our child. We know that you will understand where we are coming from and we thank you for that, ”Virushka said.
Even announcing the news of his daughter’s arrival, Virat Kohli had requested his fans to ‘respect’ his privacy. She wrote on Twitter, “We are thrilled to share with you that we have been blessed with a baby girl this afternoon. We thank you for your love, prayers and wishes. Both Anushka and the baby are healthy and we feel blessed to begin this new chapter of our lives. We hope you can honor our privacy at this time. “
