Mirza and Malik welcome baby boy to world
Indian tennis star Sania Mirza has given birth to a baby boy, her Pakistani cricketer husband Shoaib Malik said yesterday, prompting a flood of congratulatory messages on social media. “Excited to announce: It’s a boy, and my girl is doing great and keeping strong as usual #Alhumdulilah. Thank you for the wishes and Duas, we are humbled. #BabyMirzaMalik,” Malik tweeted. Mirza and Malik enjoy a high profile owing to their successful sports careers and their unusual marriage straddling the border of nuclear-armed rivals India and Pakistan. “It’s a boyyyy !!!! ” Mirza’s younger sister, Anam Mirza, wrote on Instagram. Malik’s manager and agent, Ameem Haq, said the former Pakistan captain was “over the moon” to become a father.
