What a time it is for MS Dhoni. While on the professional front, he led Chennai Super Kings to their fourth title, seems like even in his personal life there is more happiness coming his way. In a recent statement by fellow CSK cricketer Suresh Raina's wife Priyanka Raina, she claimed that Sakshi and MS Dhoni are expecting their second baby.

Although the celebrity couple are already parents to an adorable daughter Ziva, the news of them being set to become parents for the second time has taken social media by storm with several netizens congratulating them.

Dhoni became father for the first time before ODI World Cup 2015

Earlier, just before the ICC Cricket World Cup in 2015, Dhoni had become a father for the first time. While the baby was due in March, she was born a month earlier. However, Dhoni had decided not to meet her until their return from the World Cup. His famous quote where he said that he was on national duty and everything else could wait had gone viral back in the 2015 World Cup which was being played in Australia.

Another memorable incident with regards to Ziva's birth is the fact that it was Dhoni's close friend Raina who got to know first about the arrival of the little angel. This is because Dhoni did not even carry a mobile phone to the World Cup and Sakshi had to message Raina about the good news.

It was Raina who then informed MSD that he had become a father on February 6, 2015, two days before India's warm-up match against Australia. As far as 2015 World Cup is concerned, India made it to the semifinals of that event but faced a crushing defeat against the hosts and eventual champions Australia by 95 runs.

When Dhoni becomes a father for the second time though, he would want to be there for the birth of his child as he is now a retired international cricketer.
