Islamabad/IBNS: Pakistan's former cricket team captain Shahid Afridi has become father for the fifth time.

Afridi confirmed the news of social media and shared image of his baby girl.

" The Almighty’s infinite blessings & mercy are upon me...already having been granted 4 wonderful daughters I have now been blessed with a 5th, Alhamdulillah. Sharing this good news with my well-wishers... #FourbecomeFive," Shahid tweeted.

His four daughters are named Aqsa, Ansha, Ajwa and Asmara.

Keeping with the tradition, Afridi is going to name the newborn starting with the letter 'A'.

Asking fans for suggestions, he tweeted: "This one’s for my fans : As you can see there’s a trend of my daughter’s names beginning with the letter ‘A’ . Send me your recommendations for our new arrival with ‘A’....the winning name I select gets a prize! Keep the names rolling! #Aqsa#Ansha#Ajwa#Asmara#A."
