Just a week ahead of the cricket World Cup, India skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni on friday
became a father after his wife Sakshi gave birth to a baby girl at a private hospital here.
The baby was due in March but was born almost a month earlier. The 33-year-old cricketer
became a first time father after his daughter was born at Fortis Hospital here in the evening. The baby weighs 3.7 kgs, according to the doctors and both mother and bady are doing fine. Dhoni is currently busy preparing for India's title defence at the World Cup
in Australia. Sakshi is generally seen travelling with his husband on tours but she didn't travel with Dhoni during the Australia tour. Dhoni had tied the nuptial knot with childhood friend Sakshi Singh Rawat on July 4, 2010. The delivery happened through a c-section and
both the mother and child are doing fine. The couple had been consulting at Fortis Memorial Research Institute (FMRI)
