What will be the surname of Shoaib Malik and Sania Mirza’s child?



Web Desk: Indian tennis player who never spoke about her future planning now opened up about her private family life.

During an interview, the tennis player said that she would want a daughter whenever she decides to start a family. Later she said she would want her child’s surname to be Mirza Malik.

She quoted, “Today I will tell you a secret. My husband and I have spoken about it and we have decided that whenever we have a child, the child will have Mirza Malik as a surname and not just Malik. So that’s where we stand as a family including my husband. He actually wants a daughter.”

“We are two sisters and have never wished that we had a brother. I have had fights with my uncles and aunts, who talk about it or come up and tell my parents that they should have had a son. For us, daughters are daughters and there was nothing like wanting a son to carry the family name forward,” she continued.

While talking about her surname after marriage, she stated,“I have not changed my surname (post marriage) and my name is still Sania Mirza and it will remain that way. The family name is going to go forward.”

Sania Mirza was present at the Geo Fest 2018 where she talked about her personal life during a panel discussion.
