She tweeted: "Welcome to the world beautiful Ziva! Mumma and Daddy adore you! Thanks for all of the well wishes! (sic)" Originally a Hebrew name, Ziva means radiance, brilliance, light or brightness.
Sakshi gave birth to Ziva in Gurgaon's Fortis Hospital last week — just days before India, captained by Dhoni, begin their defence of the ICC World Cup title.
The couple got married five years ago at Dehradun away from the glare of the media.
