Sana Javed too took to Instagram where she shared her wedding pictures with Shoaib Malik. She even changed her name on Instagram to Sana Shoaib Malik.
This is Shoaib Malik’s, 41, third marriage. Let’s have a look at his relationship timeline here:
1. Shoaib Malik and Ayesha Siddiqui (2002 to 2010)
Just before Shoaib Malik got married to Sania Mirza in 2010, a woman named Ayesha Siddiqui from Hyderabad, India claimed that she had been married to the Pakistani cricketer since 2002, and this had created a huge controversy back then. While Shoaib had denied the allegations, Ayesha Siddiqui filed a complaint against him with the police for cheating on her. Ayesha, who is also known as Maha Siddiqui and was a teacher by profession, had shown video clips of her marriage to Shoaib as proof. And thus, just days before Shoaib’s marriage to Sania he divorced Ayesha in April 2010. As per reports, over 10 people helped as mediators between Ayesha and Shoaib to settle the divorce, and she was also given an alimony of INR 15 crores.
2. Shoaib Malik and Sania Mirza (2010 to 2024)
On April 12, 2010, Shoaib Malik and Sania Mirza got married in a traditional Hyderabadi Muslim ceremony at Hyderabad’s Taj Krishna Hotel. It was followed by a Walima ceremony in Sialkot, Pakistan. The cross-border love story which culminated in a high-profile wedding was much in the news back then. Eight years later, the couple was blessed with a son named Izhaan Mirza Malik in 2018. However, a few years after their wedding, with both Sania and Shoaib living separately– rumours were rife that things weren’t good in their marriage. There were also rumours of Shoaib dating Pakistani actress Sana Javed in 2023. They intensified more when Shoaib wished Sana on her birthday on social media. Shoaib and Sania also removed their pictures together from their respective social media profiles and even changed their bio. Earlier Shoaib’s Instagram bio read: “Husband to a superwoman Sania Mirza” which was changed to “Father to One True Blessing.”
But the rumours soon died when Shoaib and Sania hosted their son’s birthday in Dubai together and later also hosted a TV show called ‘Mirza-Malik’ from Dubai.
However, as per latest reports, Sania Mirza and Shoaib are now divorced. A report by PTI reads, ‘Sania Mirz’s father Imran Mirza told PTI that “it was a ‘khula'”, which refers to the right of a Muslim woman to unilaterally divorce her husband’.
3. Shoaib Malik and Sana Javed (2024 to present)
However, on January 20, 2024, Shoaib and Sana’s relationship was made public with their wedding pictures which were shared by the new couple. It is noted that while this is Shoaib’s third marriage, Sana too is married for the second time. Pakistani TV actress Sana Javed, now Sana Shoaib Malik, was earlier married to singer Umar Jaswal from 2020 to 2023.
