Dravid blessed with a baby boy

October 11, 2005 16:14 IST

India vice-captain Rahul Dravidon Tuesday became a proud father after his wife Dr Vijeta gave birth to a baby boy at a private nursing home in Nagpur, family sources said.

Vijeta, who hails from the city, and the new born baby were healthy and cheerful, sources added.

Rahul's father and close relatives of either sides visited the hospital to enquire about the new addition in Dravid family.

However, the Indian batting mainstay could not be with his wife as he is away in Australia as a member of ICC World XI team which will take on Australia in a six-day Test match to be played at Sydney from October 14.
