While his wife, Hazel, also shared couple of pictures on her Instagram with little Orion napping on Yuvraj’s chest in an adoring image.
“Happy first Fathers Day to you @yuvisofficial You’ve dreamt of this day since before we even met, now here you are, a burping, bottle feeding, nappy-changing, rocking-baby-to-sleep Papa with all the sleep deprivation and vomit that comes along with the giggles, smiles and joy,” she wrote in the post.
“You’re a great hands-on dad and im proud of the effort you make, always trying your best xx,” she added.
