Anushka Sharma, Bollywood actress, producer and wife of India cricket captain Virat Kohli, on Monday, took to social media to share their baby girl's first photo.

"We have lived together with love, presence and gratitude as a way of life but this little one, Vamika has taken it to a whole new level! Tears, laughter, worry, bliss - emotions that have been experienced in a span of minutes sometimes," wrote Anushka on Instagram.

Kohli, who had been on the road since IPL 2020 in the United Arab Emirates, went on paternity leave after the first Test against Australia in Adelaide to be home for the birth of his first child.

The couple had announced the news of Anushka's pregnancy in August last year. They had, earlier, asked the media to respect their space and refrain from clicking photographs of their newborn to protect her privacy.
