“Welcome to the world, Orion Keech Singh,” Yuvraj Singh reveals the name of his son
“Welcome to the world Orion Keech Singh ❤️. Mummy and Daddy love their little “puttar”. Your eyes twinkle with every smile just as your name is written amongst the stars ✨ #HappyFathersDay @hazelkeech,” wrote the World Cup winner in his social media post.
In an interview with the Hindustan Times, Yuvraj Singh revealed the reasoning behind naming the newborn Orion.
“Orion is a star constellation and for parents, your kid is your star. When Hazel was pregnant and sleeping in the hospital, I was watching some episodes where the name came to me and Hazel took an instant liking to it,” explained Yuvi.
“I wanted Hazel’s last name also to come in the baby’s name, so that’s how it came about,” Yuvraj Singh further added.
In case you don’t know, Yuvi and Hazel tied the knot in November 2016. It was a traditional Sikh wedding ceremony in the presence of the family and close friends.
