Rohit Sharma could not be present at the moment to witness the birth of his daughter as he’s currently touring Australia with the Indian cricket team that won a historic boxing test match by 137 runs. However, a few days ago a video of him went viral on the social media where he was seen talking about his soon-to-be born baby. Talking about the baby, he had said :

“I cannot wait to be a father; it is going to be a game changing moment in our lives. I am eagerly awaiting the moment of becoming a father. It will be a moment to change our life,” 

The social media is filled with congratulatory wishes for the hit-man Sharma and his wife. Here, have a look at the reactions of twitterati :
