Even though he got married in 2016, former Indian cricketer Irfan Pathan had blocked all ways of showing his wife Safa Beg through social media for the last eight years. Irfan sometimes shared pictures of himself with his partner, but Safa’s face was always covered by Irrfan.
Yesterday, Irfan posted a picture while making love to his wife on their eighth wedding anniversary. But everyone was surprised by that picture, because this time the former left-handed pacer did not cover his wife’s face.
There was a lot of discussion about why Irrfan covered his wife’s picture. Because, before this he never tried to hide his personal life. Many people knew about the 10-year relationship with Australian expatriate Shivangi Dev. After their breakup in 2012, Irrfan was also seen participating in a TV dance reality show.
On February 4, 2016, Irfan married Hyderabad-born model Safa Baig in Makkah. They have two sons. The pacer, who scored a hat-trick in the first over of the Test, preferred to keep his personal life under wraps for the last eight years.
Yesterday, Irfan’s picture of his wife was published, which gave birth to a discussion. In the post, Irrfan addressed Safa and wrote, ‘A person plays countless roles – cheerleader, laugher, troublemaker, constant companion, friend and mother of my children. In this beautiful journey, I am blessed to have you as my wife. My dear, happy eighth anniversary.’
