Irfan Pathan blessed with a baby boy


Vadodara, Dec 22: Cricketer Irfan Pathan and Safa Baig were blessed with a baby boy on Monday evening at a private hospital in the city. The all-rounder, who captained the Baroda Ranji team this season, had got married on February 4 in Saudi Arabia. He had later organized a lavish reception party at the Laxmi Vilas Palace in the city.
Several cricketers and eminent personalities attended the reception.
His marriage, though, was a private affair with only family members and close friends attending it.
“I can’t describe this feeling in words. I had been eagerly looking forward to this day for the last few months and I wanted to be around Safa when I become a father. I have been blessed with a healthy child and everyone at home is delighted with the latest addition to our family,” Irfan said. Both mother and child are doing fine. “I feel confident that I will be a good father,” he said.
Irfan also took to twitter to express his feelings. “Is ehsas ko Bayaan karna Mushkil hai…is me Ek behtareen si Kashish hay, blessed with a baby boy!” he tweeted on Tuesday.
