NEW DELHI: Veteran cricket star Suresh Raina and wife Priyanka Raina welcomed a baby boy in their family on Monday. The couple is now proud parents of two beautiful children- Gracia Raina and Rio Raina.
Sharing a picture of the baby boy, Rio along with his wife and himself, Raina wrote, "The beginning of all things – wonder, hope, possibilities and a better world! We are proud to welcome our son & Gracia's little brother - Rio Raina. May he flows beyond boundaries, bringing peace, renewal & prosperity to everyone's life."
The couple had their firstborn, Gracia back in May 2016.
Raina's IPL franchise, Chennai Super Kings (CSK) also shared the good news and wrote, "Hello Rio."
Away from the field for quite a while, Suresh Raina will be now seen back into action in the Indian Premier League 2020. The IPL was scheduled to start from March 29th but got postponed to April 15th in the wake of the coronavirus outbreak. The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) President Sourav Ganguly said that the decision of whether the matches will be played in empty stadiums or the new schedule will be thought about after the assessment of the situation post 15th April.
Raina is the second-highest run-getter in the IPL with 5,368 runs following the Indian and RCB captain Virat Kohli. He also played an essential role in India's 2011 World-Cup win and we all are excited to see him on the fields again!
Heartiest congratulations to the whole family! Shivalik Journal wishes the baby boy health and prosperity.
