Former Indian cricketer Yuvraj Singh has embraced fatherhood for the past few months. On the occasion of fathers day, the veteran cricketer has opened up his time as a new parent. He has also revealed his son’s name to the world.

In an exclusive chat with Hindustan Times, Yuvraj revealed that he and his wife Hazel Keech have named their son Orion Keech Singh. Revealing the reason behind the name, he said that Orion is a constellation of stars, and he believes that a child to their parents is always a star.

“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. I wanted Hazel’s last name also to come in the baby’s name, so that’s how it came about,” he said.

Speaking of his excitement when he came to know that he was going to be a father, he said, “We had been trying for a while to have a baby but it didn’t happen. Hazel was four months pregnant when she left for England, and just when I had to go, I got Covid, so I had to quarantine for two weeks before I could see her.”

‘A feeling that you really can’t describe in words’- Yuvraj Singh

When asked about how he felt while celebrating father’s day as the first time father, he said that its a special feeling. He also recalled what his parents told him when he was not a father yet.

“It’s really special. My parents would always tell me, ‘One day when you will become a father, you’ll understand the love your parents have for you’. So, now I actually understand what they meant that when you have a child, it’s so special and such an amazing feeling that you really can’t describe in words,” he said.
