Mahendra Singh Dhoni had to forego being with his wife when Ziva was born on February 6, 2015. He is now making up for lost time.
It was in February two years ago that then Indian cricket team captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni had also become Daddy Dhoni. He was in Australia for the 50-over World Cup and did not return to India to see his newly-born daughter. Back then, journalists had even asked him if he would have preferred to stay in India, but his response was straight. “Not really. I have been blessed with a baby daughter. Mum and daughter both are good. But as of now I am on national duty so I think everything else can wait. The World Cup is a very important campaign.”

Dhoni was applauded by some for his dedication as India captain while others called him insensitive. However, his “other things can wait” statement was well-calculated, it seems, and maybe he was referring to times such as now, when he is giving full time and attention to his family.
On Tuesday, Dhoni posted a video on Instagram and Twitter, where he was seen crawling on the ground and imitating daughter Ziva . Mahi could not resist sharing this and this tender moment is taking the Internet by storm.
