Indian tennis ace Sania Mirza and Pakistani cricketer Shoaib Malik are expecting their first child.
The couple posted a picture on Twitter of a family wardrobe design with three sections — one with a shirt which read Mirza, the second had a children’s romper hanging which read Mirza-Malik, and the third with a shirt reading Malik.
According to a press release by the couple's media manager, the two are 'really excited to enter the new phase of their lives.'
"We have been thinking about it for a while and look forward to our journey as parents InshaAllah .. when we found out we were ecstatic, needless to say, our families are overwhelmed and super happy and we wanted to share this amazing news with all our fans and well-wishers,” said Shoaib.
Sania also expressed her joy at beginning her journey as a parent.
“We are soon to become parents. Having thought about it for a while, we both felt right now is the correct time to start a family," said the Grand Slam-winning star.
