Cricketer Hasan Ali becomes father of a baby girl

LAHORE: Pakistan’s bowler Hassan Ali today (Tuesday) became a father after his wife Samia gave birth to a baby girl at a private hospital.

He announced the news on Twitter Tuesday morning. “Allah has blessed us with the baby girl. Welcome to our family my princess. I wish this little angel have wonderful dreams,” he said.

“May the almighty always be with her to fulfill her dreams on the walk of her life. Ameen, Please remember in your dua,” the right-arm bowler wrote on Twitter.

The bowler is presently in South Africa for a three-match one-day international (ODI) and four-match Twenty20 International (T20I) series. The sports fraternity was quick to send their wishes to Hasan Ali on social media.

The couple had tied the knot in August 2019 in an elaborate ceremony in Dubai. The ceremony was held at a seven-star hotel, with Hassan’s close friend and teammate, Shadab Khan, as well as close friends and relatives in attendance.
