Virat and Anushka married in December 2017
After dating for a number of years, the two tied the knot on December 11, 2017, during a secret ceremony in Italy. In a chat with Indian football team captain Sunil Chettri, Virat revealed that he never formally proposed Anushka.
“What Anushka said is completely true, we never felt like we needed to do that, we knew that we were going to marry each other, there were no doubts about it ever. So once we knew that everything is going smooth, we were super excited to start our life together. And organically things went on,” the Indian cricket team skipper told Chhetri during an Instagram Live session.
Anushka and Virat had been quite active on social media during the lockdown and quarantine period with their goofy videos.
On the work front, Kohli is scheduled to resume his stint for the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) in the 2020 edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL). Earlier, Hardik Pandya and Natasa Stankovic also announced the birth of their child in style.
