Sania, who got married to Shoaib in 2010, announced about her pregnancy in April this year.
In an earlier interview, the ace Tennis star had said that she and her cricketer-husband had decided that their child will have the surname ‘Mirza-Malik’.
“Today, I will tell you a secret. My husband and I have spoken about it and we have decided that whenever we have a child, the child will have Mirza-Malik as a surname and not just Malik. So that’s where we stand as a family including my husband. He actually wants a daughter,” Sania said.
Meanwhile, Shoaib recently played in the second and third T20Is against Australia in the UAE. Pakistan completed an emphatic 3-0 whitewash over Aaron Finch’s side on Sunday.
