“Never thought I’d find leaving home so difficult .. After a hard day at work and away from Izhaan .. this is all I want to come back to,” she wrote, with a picture of her holding her little one.
Sania recently started training again, even sharing a body positive picture of herself working towards getting back to shape. Given that her body has changed post-pregnancy, she shared that she will get back to shape slowly but steadily.
Sania gave birth to her son on October 30, with her husband, Pakistani cricketer Shoaib Mallik taking to social media to announce the arrival of their baby.

Back in April this year, Sania announced her pregnancy in the cutest announcement possible. Sania tweeted the picture of a set of three lockers – with her jersey and her husband Shoaib Malik’s jersey, and a third locker which says ‘Mirza-Malik’, in the middle hinting that the baby will have both their surnames – a gender role slamming parenting.
When she was six months into her pregnancy, in an exclusive interview with JFW, Sania spoke about how pregnancy wouldn’t stop her from achieving her goals.
“I feel like marriage hasn’t changed me much. I have grown more patience after it but I am still my own person and Shoaib is who he is which is exactly what I wanted and fell in love with. Motherhood is incredible because of it a new stage in life that my body is going through and am enjoying it. When I broke the news to Shoaib he was just ecstatic! Even family for that case, I am 6 months into the pregnancy and with every month the bond is increasing, and I am showered with love!” she said.
