With the circumstance around the globe looking grave due to coronavirus pandemic, a bit of uplifting news welcomed Bangladesh’s star all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan and his wife Umme Ahmed Shishir as they became proud parents of a baby girl on the first day of Ramadan (April 24).
On Saturday (May 2), Shakib revealed the name of their newborn baby, Errum Hasan, which means Jannat (heaven). The 33-year-old shared a picture on his Facebook page to make the revelations.
The Jessore-born Shakib captioned the adorable picture and wrote, “On 24th April the first day of Ramadan Kareem on a Friday at fajar time we have been blessed with another baby girl, another blessing from Allah SWT and we have named her (Errum Hasan) means (Jannat) because she truly is a piece of heaven Alhamdulillah.” Even Shishir posted the same on her Instagram account.
Last month, Shakib flew to the USA to accompany his wife. He was in self-isolation for 14 days after reaching the country. The couple also has another daughter, Alyana Hasan, who was born in the USA five years ago.
Currently, Shakib is serving a two-year ban imposed by the ICC for failing to report corrupt approaches made to him.
The southpaw will be free to resume international cricket on October 29, 2020.
