Shahid Afridi, former Pakistan skipper, has shared beautiful pictures of his youngest daughter on Twitter. “My daughters are the most wonderful gift of Allah in my life,” Afridi wrote.

He also regretted that he was unable to spend time with them when they are growing up. “Didn’t get to spend much time with my other daughters especially when they were growing up,” wrote Afridi.

Afridi is a father to five daughters, all of whom he showers with love quite often judging from his frequent posts about them on social media.

Arwa, the baby daughter he is posing in the pictures with, was born on February this year and is the latest addition to the family.

Afridi’s remaining daughters are named Aqsa, Ansha, Ajwa, and Asmara — and the cricketer had revealed this information while invitating his fans to suggest the new baby’s name.

A few weeks ago, Afridi celebrated his 20th wedding anniversary with his spouse, Nadia Afridi. The cricketer, while sharing a few winsome snaps from the day, penned down a heartfelt note for his spouse where he said: “Today marks 20 years of marital bliss; Alhamdulillah blessed to have a life partner so caring, understanding and a wonderful mother to our children.”

In Feb this year, Afiridi was blessed with a 5th girl child.“The Almighty’s infinite blessings & mercy are upon me…already having been granted 4 wonderful daughters I have now been blessed with a 5th, Alhamdulillah. Sharing this good news with my well-wishers…”, he tweeted while sharing the picture of the newborn baby.

Last year, Afridi had stirred a controversy with the comments he made about her daughters playing outdoor sports. The ex-Pakistan captain had revealed that he had disallowed his daughters from playing cricket or any other sport due to ‘social and religious reasons’.

“Feminists can say whatever they want about my decision,” he had written in Game Changer in ay 2019. “They have my permission to play any sport, as long as they’re indoors. Cricket? No, not for my girls. They have permission to play all the indoor games they want, but my daughters are not going to be competing in public sporting activities.”
