- It’s been wonderful, each and every moment: Rohit Sharma on fatherhood
- Samaira gives the same love to me as she gives Ritika: Rohit
- Samaira is also involved in whatever I do: Rohit Sharma
Indian opener Rohit Sharma on Saturday said that he has enjoyed every moment of fatherhood since the birth of his daughter Samaira. Rohit also revealed that he had missed the all-important first moments of his daughter Samaira and it was pretty disappointing. However, he thanked his wife Ritika for capturing these moments for him.
“It’s been wonderful, each and every moment. Since the day she was born, to date, I remember every moment. As a sportsperson as a cricketer I also know that I have to be away from her,” Rohit Sharma said on the first episode of India Today Inspiration season 2.
“It’s very hard to say or think when she first started to crawl I wasn’t there. When she first started saying words, I wasn’t there. When she first started walking, I wasn’t there. It’s a bit disappointing to miss all of that but credit to my wife, she captured all those moments. I am really really thankful to have a wife like that. She wants me to be part of everything. I have not felt left out. Samaira gives the same love to me as she gives Ritika,” Rohit added.
“She is also involved in whatever I do. And she is at that stage where she wants to explore everything. What is dad doing? What is mom doing? She loves the phone which we are trying to keep her away from,” Rohit signed off.
Rohit Sharma-led Mumbai Indians is currently at the third spot in the IPL 2020 points table after they came back strongly with a 49-run win over two-time champions Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR).
