Anushka Sharma and Virat Kohli, who have been married for over four years, have been all about enjoying simple moments in life and dishing out major couple goals. They have been making the most of their time together and it is a treat to watch them together.

While we will always ensure that you get all the content you need featuring us, we would request you to kindly not take or carry any content that has our child”. And as Vamika is set to turn a year old today, Virat and Anushka have made sure to keep fans updated about their parenthood journey and how they have celebrated every milestone with their daughter.

Anushka on Vamika’s qualities
In her recent interview with Grazia, Anushka opened up about her daughter and shared some qualities of Vamika. In fact, she also drew a similarity between her and Vamika and said, “I find her extremely determined. I feel that if she wants to do something then she’s going to do it, and I can tell that it’s going to serve some purpose for her in life. It’s nice to see that because I think I was like that too”
How Vamika’s arrival made Anushka stronger
While speaking to Grazia, Anushka also revealed that Vamika’s arrival had made her stronger. “When you’re completely responsible for an individual who’s dependent on you, you don’t have time to dwell on less important things. When Virat and I look back on the moments or situations that worried us, they feel so trivial in comparison. Today, I find myself stronger, braver, and more sure of myself, way more than I’ve ever been. I’m making better decisions because a lot of the riff-raff has been cleared out,” she added.
