Veteran India spinner Harbhajan Singh and his wife Geeta Basra have been blessed with a baby boy on Saturday. The Kolkata Knight Riders cricketer announced the news on social media and within no time he has received the best wishes and congratulatory messages from all corners.
"A new little hand for us to hold, his love is grand, precious as gold. A wonderful gift, so special and sweet. Our hearts are full our lives complete," Harbhajan tweeted.
"We thank the Almighty for blessing us with a healthy baby boy. Both Geeta and baby are doing well. We are overwhelmed with joy and would like to extend our gratitude to all our well-wishers, for their constant love and support," he added.

Earlier, in March, the couple had announced that they are expecting their second baby. After years of courtship, Harbhajan had married Geeta Basra on October 2015 at his native place in Jalandhar in Punjab.
Recently, on Harbhajan Singh's 41st birthday, Geeta had penned a loving note on social media sharing, "Happy birthday Mr Singh! ❤️ ?Nothing but love and happiness to you.. ?❤️? may this be your most special one yet.. Another quiet birthday in covid times.. ? but I know that’s exactly how you like it! ? we love you lots.. May God always keep you blessed."
Bhajji was last seen in action in the now-suspended IPL 2021, playing his trade for KKR and played 3 games but couldn't take a wicket.
However, with the action now set to shift to the UAE, where spinners are expected to play a prominent role, Harbhajan is expected to play a crucial role.
