Preity Zinta, a Bollywood actress and co-owner of the Punjab Kings cricket franchise in the Indian Premier League (IPL), will be absent at the 2022 auction in Bengaluru on February 12 and 13. The actress said on social media that she will not be able to fly to India without her newborn twins. In November of last year, Preity and her husband Gene Goodenough welcomed their twins via surrogacy.
Preity Zinta wrote, “This year I’m going to miss the IPL Auction as I cannot leave my little ones & travel to India. The last couple of days have been hectic discussing d auction & all things cricket with our team.I wanted to reach out to our fans & ask them if they hv any player suggestions or recommendations for our new team. I would love to know who you wanna see in the red jersey this year. Bring it on folks… I’m all ears #iplauction #throwback.”
Preity Zinta was seen with her child in a photo released on social media on Saturday. “Tonight is the Tata IPL Auction, and I’m all set to watch it. Instead of the red auction paddle, I’ve got a sweet warm infant in my arms???? On a more serious note, my heart is beating and I am looking forward to seeing our new PBKS team. Best wishes, @punjabkingsipl ???????? Let’s stick to our plans and keep on track. #Tataiplauction #saddasquad @iplt20 #ting, #Tataiplauction, #Tataiplauction, #Tataiplauction, #Tata “she penned
The twins were born through surrogacy to Preity Zinta and her husband, Gene Goodenough. Jai Zinta Goodenough and Gia Zinta Goodenough are their names.
