Former India cricketers Sandeep Patil, 62, and Salil Ankola, 50, became grandparents recently. Ankola's daughter Sana, who is married to Patil's actor son Chirag, delivered a baby girl on Wednesday.

Yesterday, Ankola posted two photographs (below), one of him with baby Sana and second of his daughter Sana with Riana on Instagram. He wrote: "My baby's baby. Time flies, not long back I had my baby Sana in my arms and now Sana has her baby daughter RIANA in her arms. Today is the happiest day of my life @riaankola." Meanwhile, Patil said in a message to a friend: "Chirag and Sana were blessed with a baby girl on the first day of Navratri."
