Mumbai: Amid rumours of their marriage going through turbulent times, India's tennis ace Sania Mirza received wishes from her cricketer-husband Shoaib Malik on her 36th birthday on Tuesday.
Malik took to Instagram to wish Sania, and wrote, "Happy Birthday to you @MirzaSaniar. Wishing you a very healthy & happy life! Enjoy the day to the fullest..."
The wishes were much appreciated by fans of the star couple. The couple, who got married in 2010, have a son. The couple had moved to Dubai after their wedding.
"Really happy to see you guys together. A great shutup call for all who were spreading rumours," wrote a fan on social media.
The speculation that their marriage was on the rocks was triggered by Sania's cryptic post on Instagram. "Where do broken hearts go? To find Allah," wrote the tennis icon on November 8.
Sania, who had announced in January this year that she would be retiring at the end of season, has reportedly been living separately and is co-parenting Izhaan. While the actual reason for the reported discord is not known, a report by DNA quoting Pakistani media said recently that the Malik cheated on Sania.
Sania recently shared an image with her son and wrote, "The moments that get me through the hardest days @izhaan.mirzamalik." However, the pair had come together to celebrate Izhaan's birthday,
While Malik shared pictures of the occasion, Sania did not.
However, what caught the attention of the fans was Malik's caption of the post, which read, "When you were born, we became more humble and life meant something special to us. We may be not together and meeting everyday but Baba is always thinking about you and your smile every single second. May Allah give you everything you ask for @izhaan.mirzamalik. Baba & Mama love you."
