India’s one-day international (ODI) skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni and his wife Sakshi were clicked together with their daughter Ziva in public for the first time on Saturday at the airport in Ranchi.

Ziva was born on February 6 when Dhoni was in Australia, leading the team into the World Cup campaign.

Asked by journalists if he would have preferred being in India for the birth of his first child, Dhoni had replied, “Not really... I've been blessed with a baby daughter... Mom and daughter both are good. But as of now, I'm on national duty, so I think everything else can wait.”

Dhoni cradled Ziva in a baby sling at Birsa Munda International Airport. The couple had been in Delhi to attend cricketer Suresh Raina’s wedding.
