Shakib, Shishir blessed with a son

Bangladesh all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan and his wife Umme Ahmed Shishir were blessed with a son on Monday.

Shishir gave birth to their third child at a hospital in Wisconsin, USA.

“By the grace of Almighty Allah, we have been blessed with a beautiful son on the eve of Monday, March 15, 2021,” Shakib informed through a Facebook post on his official page.

Shakib said both mother and child are doing good and asked for prayers for his family.

“Alayna and Errum are ecstatic to have their own baby brother. Shishir and our child are both in good health and spirit. Thank you for countless prayers and wishes. Please continue to pray for all of us. Love you all, Shakib,” he said.

Shakib and Shishir became parents for the first time in 2015 when Shishir gave birth to Alayna Hasan while their second daughter Errum Hasan was born on April 24 last year.

Shakib skipped Bangla-desh’s limited-overs series against New Zealand to be with his wife in the USA for the birth of their third child.
