The mother and child are doing fine.
Bhuveneshwari Kumari belongs to a royal family in Rajasthan and the two got married In December 2013.
Sreesanth's cricketing career took a dramatic dip after he was arrested for his alleged involvement in a match-fixing case.
But with the trial over and the verdict expected to be delivered by a Delhi court later this month, he remains confident that he will be exonerated.
