Indian star wrestler Geeta Phogat has announced that she is expecting her first child with wrestler husband Pawan Kumar. 

The 30-year-old from Haryana's Bhiwani took to her social media handle to reveal the world that she is pregnant.  

Sharing a picture of herself with a baby bump, Geeta said that a woman can never understand life fully until it grows inside her. 

“A mother's joy begins when new life is stirring inside… when a tiny heartbeat is heard for the very first time, and a playful kick reminds that liitle one is never alone. You never understand life until it grows inside of you," she wrote on Twitter. 

Phogat won India's first-ever gold medal in wrestling at the Commonwealth Games in 2010. She was also the first Indian female grappler to have qualified for the Olympic Summer Games.
