After 8 years of marital bliss, Sania Mirza and Shoaib Malik are now gearing up to welcome their first child in October 2018. Sania Mirza posted this picture on social media and captioned, "Prepping for the role of a lifetime in this comfy yet stylish maternity & nursing dress from @momzjoy Love that it can be worn through pregnancy and nursing days. #momzjoy #ownyourconfidence #maternityfashion #nursingcomfort"
On April 12, 2010, Sania Mirza married Pakistani cricketer Shoaib Malik in a traditional Hyderabadi Muslim wedding ceremony at the Taj Krishna Hotel in Hyderabad, followed by Pakistani wedding customs for a mahr of 6.1 million (US$137,500). Mahar is a gift given by the groom to the bride after the solemnisation ceremony in a Muslim wedding. Their Walima ceremony (marriage banquet) was held in Lahore, Pakistan.
Sania Mirza is known to be one of the most vocal and opinionated sports stars in India. She is seen taking a stand and expressing her views on various topics on social media regularly
An interesting fact that has come out during the pregnancy is that Sania Mirza and Shoaib Malik's baby will have both the parents' surnames, Mirza and Malik. Sania stated, “Today I will tell you a secret. My husband and I have spoken about it and we have decided that whenever we have a child, the child will have Mirza Malik as a surname and not just Malik. So that’s where we stand as a family including my husband. He actually wants a daughter"
The 31-year-old tennis star Sania Mirza in an interview to a Mumbai newspaper had said, “While every woman’s body reacts differently to pregnancy, it’s unfair to think that you are handicapped for nine months. I’d recommend using this time to prepare your body for the changes that are going to happen in the following months. Begin by staying active and live a normal life; that’s what I did.”
Sania Mirza and Shoaib Malik had first announced their pregnancy on social media on April 23, 2018. She has been regularly posting her pictures of her growing baby bump ever since. In this picture, she captained, "You can take the player off the tennis court for a while .. but you can’t take the tennis out of the tennis player ever"
