Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) wrote on X: "And then there are four. Many congratulations to Anushka and Virat, and a big welcome to the youngest member of the RCB family, Akaay. This is such a happy news and India will sleep well tonight."

Punjab Kings stated: "From King Kohli to Prince Kohli — a new chapter begins! Sending heartfelt congratulations to Virat Kohli and family on their bundle of joy."

Rajasthan Royals wrote: "Everything is Akaay."

Interestingly, Kohli's one-time RCB teammate AB de Villiers had, in a video on his YouTube channel, let the cat out of the bag when he said that Virat and Anushka were expecting their second child. He later retracted his statement and said it was a result of a misunderstanding.

Anushka and Virat, who are fondly called as 'Virushka' by their fans, got married in December 2017 in a hush hush ceremony in Italy.

In 2021, Anushka and Virat had welcomed their daughter whom they named Vamika.
