India tennis star Sania Mirza and her husband, Pakistan cricketer Shoaib Malik, have been blessed with a baby boy.

Malik broke the news through his Twitter account on Tuesday morning, saying he was excited to share that he has become a father to a boy and that Sania is doing great.

“Excited to announce: Its 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 posted on his official handle.


Soon congratulatory messages began pouring out with the hash-tag #BabyMirzaMalik trending on Twitter.






The couple, who married in 2010, announced pregnancy in April this year. They got married in controversial circumstances after a Hyderabad girl claimed the Pakistan cricketer married her via phone and was yet to divorce her.

Malik responded by claiming he was duped into marrying her and later on, officially divorced her after an FIR was lodged against him.
