Both mother and newborn baby are said to be in good health and Shaniera has already been discharged from the private hospital.

Wasim said earlier in an interview to HT, "Shaniera is currently in Australia, where she is preparing to give birth to our first child. After the India-Australia series, my two sons and I will join her there. It's exciting that I'll be a father again. I never thought it would happen. The boys are excited too. I think I'll enjoy fatherhood more this time around; when my sons were born, I was travelling a lot for cricket."
