Literally everyone in Pakistan and India was invested in finding out when Sania Mirza and Shoaib Malik’s baby was going finally arrive. After all, the couple has become the unofficial brand ambassador for love between the two countries, owing to their high profile careers and their equally high profile marriage.
Finally, that day has arrived!
Mark October 30th, 2018 in your calendars
If you’re THAT kind of a fan.
At exactly 7.01 AM Shoaib Malik announced the birth of his baby boy
He also conveyed that the child and mother are doing well and he thanked their fans for prayers and wishes that had been sent the couple’s way all through this pregnancy.

We can’t wait to see photos of Baby Mirza-Malik
If the couple chooses to share, that is, but Sania’s time through this pregnancy has not been a bed of roses. She was criticized, “advised” and shamed for not disappearing from public life during her pregnancy, as is expected of many desi women.
Good on her, though, that she stood strong amid all this and even called out people who were unnecessarily passing judgment on her
Only a few days ago, there had been rumors of a birth but Shoaib had soon clarified that they were not true
He said that he would announce when their child was actually born and he has stuck to his promise!
We will do a proper announcement when the kid decides to arrive, please keep us in your Duas (and don’t believe everything you see/read on the internet please!) 🙏🏼

Anyway, congratulations to the happy couple. Naseeb achay hon baitay ke.
