Hardik and Natasha announced their engagement on New Year’s eve. And in May, the duo revealed that they are expecting a baby in upcoming months.
“Natasa and I have had a great journey together and it is just about to get better. Together we are excited to welcome a new life into our lives very soon. We’re thrilled for this new phase of our life and seek your blessings and wishes,” Hardik wrote earlier in a post on Instagram.
Last month, during his interaction with Harsha Bhogle for Cricbuzz, Hardik reminisced an interesting anecdote about his first meeting with Natasa.
“She had no idea who I was. I got her by talking. She saw someone in a hat at a place where I met her, wearing a hat, a chain, a watch, at 1 AM. So she thought he is ‘alag prakaar ka aadmi aaya’ (different kind of person came). That is when I started talking to her, started knowing each other. Then, we started dating. Then got engaged on December 31,” remarked Hardik.
Meanwhile, on the professional front, Hardik is all set to feature for Mumbai Indians in the 13th season of Indian Premier League (IPL), which gets underway from September 19 in UAE.
The cash-rich league was originally scheduled to commence from March 29, but the ongoing coronavirus pandemic played a spoilsport and the tournament was initially postponed indefinitely.
