Sunil Chhetri’s Joyous Moment: Captain of Indian Football Team Welcomes Baby Boy!
Secunderabad: Indian football team captain Sunil Chhetri and his wife Sonam Bhattacharya have recently welcomed a baby boy, according to local media reports on Thursday. This news comes as a delightful surprise for fans of the sports star. The couple’s bundle of joy arrived after Sunil made an adorable gesture during a match in June, where he celebrated scoring a goal by pointing to his wife in the stands and then cradling a pretend baby bump. When asked about the special moment in a post-match interview, Sunil shared that he and his wife were indeed expecting a baby and expressed his hopes for their little one to receive plenty of love and blessings.
A Star Player’s Journey to Fatherhood
Sunil’s journey to fatherhood began while representing India in international matches. In July, he won the SAFF Championship and took home both the Golden Boot and Golden Ball awards. Following this victory, he spent time with his loved ones instead of participating in the Durand Cup with Bengaluru FC. His break from the sport continued in September when he was rested for the King’s Cup in Thailand. Head Coach Igor Stimac supported Sunil’s decision to prioritize family time, considering the tournament was a friendly event.
