Cricketer Hardik Pandya and his partner, former Bigg Boss contestant and actor-dancer Natasa Stankovic, have welcomed their first child, a baby boy. Pandya took to Instagram to share the happy news. He wrote, “We are blessed with our baby boy.”
Hardik posted a picture of himself holding his son’s hand. However, the baby’s face was not visible in the photo. As soon as he posted the picture, wishes and congratulatory messages started pouring in.
