Vice-captain of the Indian Test team Ajinkya Rahane became a father to a baby girl on Saturday. The 31-year old is currently in Visakhapatnam with the Indian team and is participating in the ongoing test match. He thus could not be with his wife Radhika Dhopavkar to share the special moment for their family.

Veteran Indian off-spinner Harbhajan Singh took to his social media account to break the news and congratulate the Mumbaikar and his family for the good news.

“Congratulations new daddy in town Ajinkya Rahane. Hope mum and little princess are doing well…fun part of life starts now #fatherhood,” he tweeted.

Notably, Ajinkya Rahane had married his childhood friend Radhika in 2014 and this is their first child. In July earlier this year, the couple had made public the news of them expecting their first child as Radhika had shared some pictures flaunting her baby bump.

Rahane has featured for the Indian team in 58 Tests, 90 ODIs and 20 T20Is so far in his International career.
