A few months ago, Indian cricketer, Hardik Pandya announced his engagement to model Natasha Stankovic. A few days ago, he gave yet another surprise by breaking the news of her pregnancy. He is seen flaunting her baby bump while she looks lovingly at the baby daddy.

Take a look at the picture here:

Besides being all cute and oh so in love, accept it or not, Hardik broke an unsaid law of becoming a father before getting married. This controversy is accepted with mixed feelings among his fans as many of them are not very forward and like to follow traditions.

Interestingly, he is not the only one to do so. History is witness to various other cricketers who had become parents before they got married to the partners. Some never got married. Let’s take a look at 4 such cricketers who did it before Hardik.

  1. Vivian Richards 

They were a much talked about couple when news spread about Neena’s pregnancy and that she decided to keep the baby and not prioritizing getting married. They had a daughter and she grew up to be the fierce fashion designer, Masaba Gupta. As for the parents they parted ways and Masaba adopted her mother’s last name.

2. Joe Root

Long time girlfriend and mother to his kids, Joe and Carrie were unmarried at the time she got pregnant with the baby. Finally, right before the T20 World Cup, Joe got engaged to her and gave an official name to the relationship.

3. Vinod Kambli 

He has been a popular cricketer of his times and he dabbled in a handful of movies as well. After a long live-in relationship with model Andrea Hewitt, they became parents before getting married. That made him receive a lot of hate but he went against all odds to stand by his new family.

4. David Warner
