Soon after Virat Kohli announced the birth of their second child on Wednesday, February 21, congratulatory messages started pouring in. Kohli, in his Instagram post, announced that his wife, Bollywood actress Anushka Sharma, delivered a baby boy last Thursday (February 15). The couple has named their secondborn Akaay.

Kohli's Instagram post went viral pretty quickly, and had garnered 8.8 million likes and 399,000 comments by Wednesday evening. Among those who commented on the cricketer's post were former India cricketer Virender Sehwag, former Australia pacer Brett Lee, and former England batter Kevin Pietersen.

Sehwag used a heart emoji in his "Many congratulations Virat" comment. His message garnered a lot of attention from fans, and at the time of writing this, Sehwag's comment had over to 20,000 likes and 60 replies. The former Indian opener's comment was one of the most popular threads in Kohli's post.

Pietersen and Lee's comments were also close behind Sehwag's in terms of attention. The former England captain's "The best" comment got over 3,000 likes while Lee's comment received 16,700 likes.

Virat Kohli has played either with or against all of these cricket stalwarts. The star batsman, however, had opted out of the five-match series against England citing personal reasons.
