All about Virat Kohli's paternity leave

A few months ago, Virat Kohli took paternity leave amid India's two-month-long tour in Australia. The Indian team captain was granted paternity leave by the Board of Control for Cricket India (BCCI). Speaking about his paternity leave, Virat was in an interview said: 

The decision was made before we had the selection meeting, and I explained the same to selectors that I will be flying back after the first Test. It was purely based on the fact that we have a quarantine period in both ways. I wanted to be back home in time to be with my wife for the birth of my first child. It is a very, very special and very, very beautiful moment that I want to experience.

Times when Kapil tried to hide Ginni's pregnancy

The couple never confirmed that they are all set to embrace parenthood for the second time.  In a video posted by fellow comedian and Kapil's dear friend Bharti Singh, Kapil's wife was seen with a baby bump fans speculated that Ginni is expecting.

Later, in the family photos shared during Diwali festivities, Ginni was made to stand behind a big chair and fans were quick to guess that it was a 'strategic' position to hide her baby bump.

Earlier in January, Kapil set the rumour mill spinning when he tweeted, "Shubh Samachar ko English me kya kehte hain (what do you call 'good news' in English)?" Author Chetan Bhagat congratulated Kapil and wrote, "Congratulations ko Hindi mein kya kehte hain? Mubarak aapko bahut bahut (How do you say congratulations in Hindi? Many many congratulations to you)!"

So, the makers felt that it would be ideal for taking a break right now and returning when things get back to normal.
