Model and host Mayanti Langer and cricketer husband Sturat Binny have welcomed their first child a baby boy. Mayanti announced the news on social media to reveal the arrival of the baby boy in the family. She posted an adorable picture with Stuart and the baby and also thanked Star Sports for supporting her when she needed them. Moreover, Mayanti Langer also cleared that she would’ve hosted the IPL matches if the tournament had taken place earlier as scheduled.“So quite a few have reached out, and many are speculating. For the past five years, my family at Star Sports has given me the incredible privilege of fronting their most high profile events. In fact they supported me when I needed them the most, when I was pregnant with my son.“They made several adjustments to ensure that I was comfortable hosting till I was 20 weeks/5 months pregnant and would have continued going so had IPL 2020 gone on as scheduled. Stuart and I were blessed by the birth of our baby boy almost six weeks ago. Life has changed for the better,” she wrote in her tweet.
So I’m going to love watching the IPL @StarSportsIndia all the best to the team 😁 @jatinsapru@suhailchandhok@cricketaakash@SanjanaGanesan@ProfDeano@scottbstyris@BrettLee_58@Sanjog_G and the full gang!! pic.twitter.com/fZVk0NUbTi— Mayanti Langer Binny (@MayantiLanger_B) September 18, 2020
