Sania Mirza is the world famous Indian tennis star and Shoaib Malik is a fantastic Pakistani cricketer. They both got married on April 12, 2010. And after 8 years of their marital bliss, they were blessed with a baby boy on October 30, 2018, whom they named Izhaan Mirza Malik. Izhaan Mirza Malik is now eight-month-old baby and is too adorable. Sania Mirza-Malik is not only an amazing professional tennis player but also a doting mother and wife. She has incredibly balanced her personal and professional life.
After Pakistan won the match against Bangladesh on July 5, 2019, Pakistani cricketer Shoaib Malik announced his retirement from ODI cricket. He took to Twitter to make the announcement and wrote, “Today I retire from One Day International cricket. Huge Thank you to all the players I have played with, coaches I have trained under, family, friends, media, and sponsors. Most importantly my fans, I love you all #PakistanZindabad”.
Soon after his announcement the proud wife Sania took to Instagram and tweeted how proud they are of his achievements. She wrote, “Every story has an end, but in life, every ending is a new beginning’ @realshoaibmalik you have proudly played for your country for 20 years and u continue to do so with so much honour and humility..Izhaan and I are so proud of everything you have achieved but also for who you are. here’s to a few more thousand T20 runs”.
When Shoaib Malik tied the knot with Sania Mirza back in 2010, tired of the constant media scrutiny Shoaib had told media to give them some space. According to an NDTV report, Shoaib had said, “I am pleased to know that people are happy with our marriage but I think now it is time to stop this hype and let us live like a normal couple. I would request the media to leave alone both the families.” He had further added, “Two people from different countries got married and it should only be treated as a marriage nothing more.”
It was on October 30, 2018, when Sania and Shoaib had embraced parenthood. In an interview with Pinkvilla Sania revealed how Shoaib helps her in babysitting. When she was asked, “You recently embraced motherhood and were a force to reckon with. Has anything changed after that? How has Shoaib been helping you with babysitting?” She had replied, “A lot has changed after becoming a mother, your life changes, I think the whole focus becomes about the baby and prioritising the baby. Me as a working woman, I obviously want to get back to tennis, so I am trying to prioritise my time. It is the most selfless kind of love I have ever known, and it is the most amazing feeling I have ever had. My life has completely changed for the better. Ya, Shoaib is also playing quite a lot and is travelling so he does help whenever he can.”
Wishing all the luck and happiness to Shoaib and his family.
