Tennis star Sania Mirza and Pakistani cricketer Shoib Malik, who were blessed with a son on Tuesday morning, have named the little one Izhaan Mirza-Malik.
The first name means God’s gift, as the parents feel that he is truly one.
Sania delivered the baby in Rainbow Hospital in Hyderabad.
Shoaib broke the news on social media, tweeting: “Excited to announce: It’s a boy, and my girl is doing great and keeping strong as usual #Alhumdulilah. Thank you for the wishes and Duas, we are humbled.”
