Wrestler-turned-politician Babita Phogat and Vivek Suhag welcomed their first child — a baby boy on December 11, 2021. Babita took to her social media handle to share beautiful pictures of her son from the hospital.
"Meet our little SONshine.” “Believe in dreams; they do come true. Ours came dressed in blue!," Babita wrote. Babita Phogat and Vivek Suhag had tied the knot in November 2019. Apart from their wrestling endeavours, they had also participated in the reality show Nach Baliye together.
Babita Phogat made the big announcement on Instagram in November 2020. In the photograph, the Commonwealth Games medallist and her husband Vivek Suhag were seen holding her baby bump as they stared into each other’s eyes.
Her caption was a gratitude post towards her husband sharing that she felt ‘lucky’ over every ‘single moment' that she spent being his wife and the ‘amazing life’ they lived together. She also wrote, ‘You are my happy place. You complete me’ Babita shared her excitement and that she was waiting to start this ‘new chapter’ in her life.
