Being a father is completely a different feeling. MS Dhoni loves to be around with his cute little angel Ziva. We have seen both of them having fun which is certainly one of the best chemistry we will ever see between the dad and daughter.

MS Dhoni was caught in an interview with ThePrint where he shared what it is like to be a father. He said that it is completely a different feeling that cannot be put in words. In leisure time, MS Dhoni has been enjoying fatherhood to the core.

“It is a very different feeling, and I personally find it very difficult to put it in words,” Dhoni said.

While interacting or spending time with Ziva, MS Dhoni said that he feels like he has not missed a lot of things in his life. But when he has national commitments, for the first time ever, he feels that he starts missing his adorable daughter Ziva.

“It is more of an emotion, and I feel I have not really missed a lot of things in life, but after a while when I am outside, after a few days, I actually start missing Ziva.

Not to the extent that it starts bothering my cricket and all, but it is the first time ever when I feel, maybe I should Facetime to see what she is really doing,” Dhoni said.

Dhoni said that Ziva is too young but very independent. What really adds is the fact that she does not expect many people to be around her and that’s super cool.

Dhoni said that he has strived for the welfare of Indian cricket for close to 12 years. But, he said that the kind of ‘missing’ something has never ever happened to him before.

“It is not like we interact a lot, she is very independent, she is very young but very independent, she does not really look for many people to be around her.

I have played for India for about 12 years, even more, but that sort of ‘missing’ has never happened. I feel that is the fatherly feeling that makes it happen.”

Dhoni shared the funny side of Ziva. Ziva is naughty and that’s how a kid should be. He also feels that he and his wife Sakshi are blessed to have a daughter like Ziva.

“I think she is naughty (smiles), she is quite naughty. But at the same time, the experience that I have had with her, I think we are blessed to have a daughter like her.

The reason being, right from the very start we started traveling with her, she was two months old, she has never troubled us at night.

She would sleep at the right time, she would get up at the right time. She has been very good when it comes to eating food on time. These are the things which are very important when your child is very young.

You want her to eat well, you want her to sleep well, and she has been very good when it comes to that,” the Iceman continued.

“She has also been very careful when it comes to playing, she is careful about the stuff that is around her so that she does not get hurt. After a while, you feel comfortable that if you are not looking at her for one minute or two minutes or even more, the chances of an accident happening are very small.

I also love the fact that she is hyperactive; once she is up, she is always on the move. She takes a nap for some time in the afternoon, but is always active,” Dhoni concluded.
