Former South Africa cricketer AB de Villiers had caused quite a sensation by announcing that the couple was expecting their second child. However, he had to retract his social media post.

Not too long ago, industrialist Harsh Goenka wrote on X, formerly known as Twitter, “A new baby is to be born in the next few days! Hope the baby takes India to great heights like the greatest cricketing father. Or will it follow the mother and be a film star? #MadeInIndia #ToBeBornInLondon.”

Kohli and Anushka got married in 2017 and their first child, Vamika, was born in 2021.
