Shakib, Shishir blessed with baby boy

Bangladesh all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan and his wife Ummey Ahmed Shishir have been blessed with a baby boy -- their third child, confirmed a source close to the cricketer's family.

Shakib’s wife gave birth to the baby at a hospital in the US on the morning of March 15 (US time).

The couple already has two daughters — Alaina Hasan Abri and Errum Al Hasan — both born in the US, like the newborn baby, reports UNB.

On January 1, 2021, Shakib announced that he would become the father of the third child.

During the most part of 2020, Shakib stayed in the US. He went to the US right after he was handed a two-year ban by the ICC over alleged corruption.

The southpaw made a comeback to competitive cricket with the Bangabandhu T20 Cup last year. He also returned to international cricket with the West Indies tour at home early this year.

Shakib is currently on leave from the national team.
