On Father’s Day, cricketer Yuvraj Singh and actor Hazel Keech shared first photos of their son and revealed his name, Orion Keech Singh. Sharing the photo where the baby is cradled in their arms, Yuvraj wrote on Instagram, “Welcome to the world 𝗢𝗿𝗶𝗼𝗻 𝗞𝗲𝗲𝗰𝗵 𝗦𝗶𝗻𝗴𝗵 ❤️. Mummy and Daddy love their little “puttar”. Your eyes twinkle with every smile just as your name is written amongst the stars ✨ #HappyFathersDay.”

In an interview , Yuvraj spoke about naming his son Orion. “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.

When asked if he wants his son to grow up to be a cricketer, Yuvraj said he will support his son to be whatever he wants. “Whether he becomes a sportsman, whether he becomes an actor or whatever career he pursues, I’d always encourage him. I’m not going to be like my dad who said, ‘You’re only going to play cricket.’ When my son was born, my dad was like, ‘I want to make him a fast bowler’, and I was like, ‘Dad, too much pressure too early. Let him come out of the hospital first’. So, that’s the fun side, but I’d not pressure him to play a particular sport,” he said.
