The cricketer star shared the post with the caption, “Blessed with a baby boy #grateful #babyboy shukar aa Tera maalka.” Fans took to the comments section and congratulated the couple.
Geeta and Harbhajan announced that they were expecting their second baby earlier this year. They shared a picture with their daughter Hinaya holding up a tiny T-shirt that featured the text: ‘Soon to be big sister.’ Geeta shared the picture on Instagram with the caption, “Coming soon.. July 2021.”
The 37-year-old actress married her long time boyfriend and India’s one of the greatest spinners, Harbhajan Singh, who is famously known as Bhajji on October 29, 2015 in Jalandhar, Punjab. The couple welcomed their first child, Hinaya Heer Plaha, a year after their wedding on July 27 2016.
Talking about Harbhajan as a caring father and loving partner, Geeta in an interview to a leading magazine had revealed how Bhajji was taking care of their little daughter during her second pregnancy. “He told me very clearly to rest. After he is back from IPL, he’s totally taken charge of handling Hinaya. He takes care of her bathing, waking her up for school and getting her ready for the classes – he is hands-on! And that’s nice because he gets his time with Hinaya too as he’s not usually at home often. And now that I am in my last trimester, things get even more difficult for me, so it’s great that he is around taking care of Hinaya,” she said.
