After numerous achievements as a cricketer, Virat Kohli welcomed a bundle of joy in his personal life too as he became a father for the first time. While the Indian Cricket Captain’s life might witness changes in the journey of fatherhood with wife Anushka Sharma, the first change that it brought out was in his Twitter bio. The bio seemed to convey his state of mind perfectly at the moment as he called himself a ‘proud husband and father.’
Fans of Virat Kolhi noticed the change on his Twitter profile days after welcoming his first child. The bio that read ‘proud husband and father’ also had a heart emoji.
The sweet update was much shorter than his previous Twitter bio which reportedly read as ‘The Official Twitter account of Virat Kohli, Indian cricketer, gamer, car loves soccer and an enthusiast.’
Fans expressed their joy on seeing the updated Twitter bio.
