Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma are celebrating their third wedding anniversary today. This anniversary is extra special for the couple as just a month later, in January, they are expecting the birth of their first child.
The dynamic duo who are successful partners and maintain a near-perfect balance between their personal and professional life have a well-defined vision about how they want to be as parents.
In October, Anushka had shared a note on her Instagram account and shared how a male child should not be considered as a privilege but as a responsibility.
She had written, "The so-called privilege has been viewed incorrectly and with an extremely myopic vision. The only 'privilege' is that one has the opportunity to raise a boy in a way that he respects a girl."
Sharing a message for all parents, she had added, "That's your DUTY as a parent to society. So, don’t think of it as a PRIVILEGE. The gender of the child doesn’t make you privileged but it is actually the responsibility you owe to society to raise a boy so well that women feel safe and protected."
On the other hand, Virat, Team India skipper who also leads the IPL team Royal Challengers Bangalore had once told, "I have a life. I have a family. I will have kids. They deserve all my time. That is something that is very, very clear, and close to my heart. I want no part of my career being flashed into my house. I want no part of my trophies, my achievements, nothing in my house when our kids are growing up."
Earlier, Virat had also said he would like to take inspiration from world champion boxer MC Mary to strike a balance between parenthood and excelling in sports. "We are in the journey to become parents ourselves, we take a lot of inspiration from what you have done, we are going to follow the same path," he had told her during a Puma India Instagram live chat.
