Hardik Pandya left for the United Arab Emirates for IPL 2020 shortly after he and Natasa Stankovic had a son recently.

India and Mumbai Indians all-rounder Hardik Pandya arrived in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) on Friday, but is already missing his “two angels” – his partner Natasa Stankovic and their new-born son. Pandya on Monday took to Instagram to share a screenshot of a video call with his family. In the photo, a smiling Natasa is accompanied by her and Pandya’s son, who seems to be peacefully asleep. Hardik, sporting his usual gold chain, is seen all smiles on his end in the long-distance family photo.https://www.instagram.com/p/CEQxSnil5om/embed/captioned/?cr=1&v=12&wp=540&rd=https%3A%2F%2Fsports.ndtv.com&rp=%2Fipl-2020%2Fin-uae-for-ipl-hardik-pandya-is-missing-natasa-stankovic-and-their-baby-boy-see-pic-2284313%3Fpfrom%3Dhome-lateststories#%7B%22ci%22%3A0%2C%22os%22%3A1609.9249999988388%2C%22ls%22%3A776.769999998578%2C%22le%22%3A903.7799999987328%7D

“Missing my 2 angels,” Pandya captioned the picture and added “Blessed to have you both in my life.”

Natasa Stankovic responded to the picture with an adorable comment.

“We love you and miss you,” she wrote, with a hug emoji.

KL Rahul, a close friend of Hardik Pandya, was one of the first to respond to the picture.

“Angel,” he wrote, along with a heart emoji.

Hardik Pandya’s sister-in-law Pankhuri Sharma and former India pacer Munaf Patel both reacted with heart emojis.

Pandya also tweeted the picture, and another one of his close friends and India teammates Dinesh Karthik responded to it on the microblogging site.

“Cayuteeeeeee,” he wrote while retweeting Pandya’s image.

Natasa Stankovic gave birth to their son on July 30. “We are blessed with our baby boy,” Hardik Pandya had captioned a picture he shared on Instagram.

The couple had announced their engagement in January this year.
