In previous interview, Gopichand shared about how his life changed after Virat is born. "Really, it changed my life completely. My family is my biggest strength. I'm having great time with my son Virat. He's smart and we play together. I forget all my strain as soon as I saw him opening the door. My wife (Reshma) often complains jocularly that am spending more time with my son than with her. She's understanding and she's my lucky mascot."
