It has just been a day since Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma welcomed their daughter. The Indian cricketer took to Instagram and announced the arrival of the couple's little munchkin and opened the gates for congratulatory messages. While the cricketer and Anushka have stayed away from social media since the announcement of the baby, fans have been speculating the name of the baby. Amid the wishes and love the couple has been receiving, Virat's brother Vikas Kohli shared a photo of a pair of baby feet to welcome the new family member. 

This led to fans believing that Vikas might have shared the first photo of the little one. Vikas shared the photo on Instagram with the caption reading, "Happiness overboard… angel in the house.” Hours later, after the photo went viral, Vikas returned to the platform to clarify that it was not baby Viruksha's feet but was a generic photo used to celebrate the occasion. "Guys, let me clarify that the picture I posted yesterday to congratulate Anushka and Virat is a random picture and not the actual picture of the baby… as some media channels are reporting… posting to clarify," he wrote on the platform.

A post shared by Vikas Kohli (@vk0681)

Days before Virat and Anushka welcomed their baby, the Zero actress told Vogue India that she would be raising her baby away from the cameras and spotlight. "We’ve thought about it a lot. We definitely do not want to raise a child in the public eye—we don’t plan on engaging our child in social media," she said. She added that it was a decision of the child and no child should be made to feel more special than the other. "It’s hard enough for adults to deal with it. It’s going to be difficult, but we intend to follow through," she added.

It's such a pity that barely a couple of days back ten babies were burnt to death but our stupid country goes obsessing over Anushka's baby. How does it matter when she will reveal the picture of the baby because they are secretive initially but then go on an overdrive posting pictures. No one can be as mysterious as Rani who has kept her baby hidden from public. Virushka are attention seekers at the end of the day n they will not keep low.
