Jasprit Bumrah had returned home from the Asia Cup to be with his wife as the couple on Monday became parents to a baby boy.

India cricketer Jasprit Bumrah and his wife Sanjana Ganesan became parents to a baby boy on Monday. India pacer Bumrah had left the Asia Cup 2023 ahead of his team's Group A match against Nepal, due to 'personal reasons', which as it turns was for the occasion of his first-born, whom the couple has named Angad. Bumrah shared the post on Instagram with a lovely caption along with a beautiful picture of the three holding hands.

Bumrah and Sanjana, a renowned television broadcaster, got married in March of 2021. Their union was a discreet affair, with a private ceremony held in the picturesque setting of Goa. The couple had skilfully concealed their romantic relationship, unlike some of their fellow celebrities such as Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma or Hardik Pandya and Natassa Stankovic. Very few outside of Bumrah and Sanjana's inner circle were privy to the love story that had been quietly blossoming between the two.

Speculations about their relationship initially began circulating when Bumrah was released from the squad prior to the fourth Test match between India and England in Ahmedabad. A few days later, their wedding photos flooded the internet and went viral. Unfortunately, Bumrah's teammates were unable to participate in the celebration due to the strict bio-bubble restrictions in place during the Covid-19 pandemic.

Since their wedding, the couple has shared pictures together. Sanjana even conducted an interview with Bumrah during India's tour of England last year. However, both have since retreated from the public eye. Bumrah experienced a setback with a stress fracture in his back, sidelining him from competitive cricket for an entire year. Meanwhile, Sanjana too mysteriously vanished from her broadcasting duties. She faced public trolling when she posted vacation pictures on his social media, but each time trolls targeted Sanjana unjustly for Bumrah's absence, she responded firmly.
