Mahendra Singh Dhoni might be busy charming his way through with his smashing performances on field but that doesn't deter him from being a doting father.
In a viral picture, MS Dhoni is seen carrying his little munchkin Ziva in his arms as they flash a smile. Not just that, Dhoni also shared a video of little Ziva wherein she wanted to give him a hug whilst he was playing on field. Cute, isn't it?
MS Dhoni and Sakshi Dhoni’s little one, Ziva, has an unbelievable fan following already. There are fan clubs dedicated to her on social media.
Ziva has been a bright student at school and recently also performed at her school’s annual show.
Ziva’s mother, Sakshi often shares cute photos and videos of Ziva. The little one has already learnt many Malayalam songs and is training in piano lessons. In one of the videos, Dhoni was seen teaching her about IPL and the teams.
When Ziva was born, Dhoni wasn't around and it was a tough time for him. In an interview, he spoke about his daughter and said, "When she was born I was not in India, had not seen her. It was a tough period. Your life does change with the kind of smile the baby gives you. She doesn't care whether I play for my country or play for a good franchise like Chennai. She wants to cry, she cries. It gives a very good feeling."
“You know, the first willing hug from my daughter’s side came only in the last 15 days! I’m enjoying that and it’s actually a special moment — now she recognises me, and tries to interact with me. But since she’s spent way more time with her mom, she often calls me ‘mama’ instead of ‘papa’! But I’ve somehow learnt to make my peace with that,” he had added.
