Indian cricketer Bhuvneshwar Kumar and his wife Nupur have been blessed with a baby girl. The ace pacer became a father for the first time after his wife birth to a girl at the Fortis hospital in Delhi on Wednesday. The treasurer of the Meerut District Cricket Association (MDCA) Rakesh Goyal confirmed the news to the media.
Bhuvneshwar and Nupur had got married on 23rd November 2017 in a ceremony in Meerut. The news of the birth of their daughter comes just a day after they celebrated their fourth wedding anniversary. It is worth mentioning that the 31-year-old lost his father to liver cancer earlier in May.
Meanwhile, the ace pacer was on India duty as he was part of India’s 3-match T20I Series against New Zealand. He will reach Meerut by Thursday after being part of the Indian T20 side.
Bhuvneshwar Kumar failed to impress the pace lovers in the Indian Premier League, playing for Sunrisers Hyderabad in 2021. He managed just 6 wickets in 11 matches. However, he repaid the faith shown in him by delivering crucial contributions in the recently concluded T20 series.
