"It's a girl," he tweeted first and then said, "Thanks a lot for all the wishes ..Nd prayers..My sweet Nd beautiful baby Nd my love her mother is fine...."
As congratulations kept pouring in from friends and well-wishers, Sreesanth again tweeted today, "Very pleased Nd so so excited to let u all know that..We are blessed with a baby angel .On mother day eve..Gods grace."
Married to his longtime girlfriend from Jaipur, Bhuvneshwari, who hails from a royal family in Rajasthan, the 32-year-old has enjoyed marital bliss since 2013.
Banned for life for his alleged involvement in spot-fixing during the 2013 edition of Indian Premier League, Sreesanth has been out of cricketing action since.
The Kerala-born player has represented India in 27 Tests and 53 ODIs before a few stints with IPL franchises - Kings XI Punjab (2008-10), Kochi Tuskers (2011) and Rajasthan Royals (2013). He made his test debut in 2006 in a Test match against England.
Apart from a professional cricket career, Sreesanth has also pursued his passion of dance and appeared in the widely popular TV show 'Jhalak Dikhla Jaa'.
