Prolific wicketkeeper-batsman Mushfiqur Rahim has become a father following the birth of his first child on Monday.
Mushfiqur’s wife Jannatul Kifayet gave birth to their firstborn son in the capital’s Square Hospital at 9:30am in the morning.
Mushy boarded a flight straight to Dhaka on Sunday evening after the Chittagong Test came to an end.
Confirming the birth of the baby boy, Mushfiq’s father Mahbub Hamid told the media, “Mushfiq’s son was born at 9:30 am this morning. The mother and son are both healthy and well.”
Later, Mushfiq took to social media Facebook to share his joy with his fans.
Posting a photo of him holding his son in his lap, Mushfiq wrote, “Allah has blessed us with a little Angel and we request you to bless our baby with your warmth and prayer please. JAZAKALLAH KHAYR.”
Mushfiq will get back in action again on February 8 when the second Test against Sri Lanka begins in Mirpur.
