As per the reports, Anushka & Virat have put restrictions to an extent where even close relatives aren’t allowed to visit the couple at least till the newborn at the hospital. Even visitors in the nearby rooms are not allowed to take a look at the baby. Reportedly, the couple is not even accepting any gifts as well from loved ones or fans, friends & well-wishers.
In order to keep their newborn & their own privacy protected, Virat and Anushka appealed to the paparazzi requesting them not to click their daughter’s picture.
The couple had sent out a note to the paparazzi fraternity in Mumbai. It read
“Hi, Thank you for all the love that you have given us for all these years. We are happy to celebrate this momentous occasion with you. As parents, we have a simple request to make to you. We want to protect the privacy of our child and we need your help and support.”
The couple then added:
“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. We know that you will understand where we are coming from and we thank you for the same.”
