“I would like to think I have picked up some of the most powerful qualities from my parents. My father is unrelenting, focused, has lived his life in the pursuit of greatness, defied the odds, turned around his fate and spent his whole life to become a mental and physical force to reckon with,” Masaba wrote.
Wishing to become “half as great” as her father, she added, “‘All you got is yourself’ – I cannot explain how true this last line is and I see it come to life every single day as I set out in my pursuit to be even half as great as you – mentally and physically. Happy 70th birthday papa!”
Masaba was born in 1988 to Neena Gupta and Vivian Richards. However, the former raised her as a single mother. While Neena went on to marry Vivek Mehra in 2008, the cricketer got married to Miriam Richards.
The designer was last seen in the Netflix show, Masaba Masaba, a semi-fictionised show inspired the lives of Masaba and Neena.
