Cricketers are no less than celebrities in the modern era. The cricketers have even overtaken some of the top actors and other sportspersons in terms of fan following. For example, current Indian cricket team star Virat Kohli is the most-followed person in Asia on Instagram.
The cricketers have started to influence the youngsters with their style, fashion and trends. In the past, it was rare to see men in India having stylish beards, but after seeing the likes of Virat Kohli and Ravindra Jadeja, fans have started to grow beards and style them well.
Speaking of how the cricketers have influenced the fans, some players have gotten married first and then embraced fatherhood. However, some players have also embraced fatherhood before getting married or renewing their wedding vows. Here’s a list of three modern-era players whose kids also attended their marriage functions.
1. One of the top Indian cricketers – Hardik Pandya
Current Indian all-rounder Hardik Pandya got hitched to Natasa Stankovic during the COVID-19 lockdown in April 2020. It was a very private ceremony, and soon after, they became parents to a son named Agastya as well. Three years later, Hardik and Natasa decided to renew their wedding vows in a grand ceremony in Udaipur, with their son Agastya also taking part in the wedding festivities.
2. One of the top Australian cricketers – David Warner
David Warner is one of the most loved overseas players in India. He developed a massive fan following while playing for the Sunrisers Hyderabad team in the IPL. David is married to Candice Warner, and the couple had a child before they tied the knot.
3. Joe Root
Like David Warner, Joe Root embraced fatherhood before getting married. Root is a former England captain, and he will make his IPL debut later this year for the Rajasthan Royals team.
