Umme Ahmed Shishir was born on 29 December 1989 in Bangladesh’s Narayanganj District to Mama taj Ahmed, an employee of Agrani Bank and his first wife (name unknown). She was raised by her step mother, alongside another sister and five brothers. She was raised in Narayanganj until the age of 10, when her step-mother who kept playing lotteries, won a DV lottery that saw the entire family move to America. However, her stepmother had won the lottery when she was 8 and along with Shishir’s father had flown to the United States. It was only after two years that Umme Ahmed Shishir too shifted to America. She graduated from the Minnesota University with a degree in Software Engineering but by the time she had completed her graduation her good looks had landed her offers from the modelling industry. However, she kept declining most of the offers until she returned to her homeland, Bangladesh.
While Umme Ahmed Shishir was pursuing her engineering from Minnesota University, she got a handful of offers from the modelling industry. However, she kept declining them all for quite a long time. It was in 2009 that she met Shakib Al Hasan in England while she was still studying. After marriage, she made her modelling debut by appearing in a TVC for BanglaLink alongside husband, Sakib Al Hasan. She has acted in a lot many TVCs since then for big brands like Huawei, Veet, Bata, and many more. She loves enjoying her life with her daughter more though as she prefers to stay home than going out for shoots. She currently is the brand ambassador for BanglaLink. She is adored and loved for her drop dead gorgeous looks by many in Bangladesh.
Umme Ahmed Shishir had grown up to be a beautiful woman by the time she was pursuing her graduation. It was in 2010-11 when she had been to England on vacations. Sakib Al Hasan was also in England for his debut stint with Worcestershire in the English County Season. The two met somehow and Sakib Al Hasan fell for Umme’s gorgeous looks. The two began dating secretly and kept up with their relationship for almost three years before tying the subtle knot. The marriage was a grand affair and that too on a very grand date, 12-12-12. The reception too was a grand affair with all of the Bangladeshi cricketers and a few from other countries present to grace the occasion. The couple has been setting relationship goals with the amazing bond they share and the love they have for each other. Umme Ahmed Shishir is admired so much that she is now considered to be Bangladesh Youth’s dream girl. The couple was blessed with a baby girl on 8th November 2015. The two have appeared with each other in many TVCs and both are the brand ambassadors of BanglaLink, one of Bangladesh’s top mobile operators.
Fame just can’t exist without controversies! While on one hand, Umme Ahmed Shishir had become the dream girl of many in Bangladesh, on the other, she was at the centre of an incident that saw her getting molested. The incident dates back to 15 June 2014, when Bangladesh were playing the second ODI against neighbours, India, at the National Cricket Stadium in Mirpur. Umme Ahmed Shishir was present in the stadium’s gallery, cheering for her husband and of course the team. While the match was still going on, a youth, reported to be a businessman’s son, was seen molesting Umme Ahmed Shishir. This didn’t go down too well with Sakib as in fit of rage he misbehaved with the crowd at Mirpur. The Bangladesh Cricket Board suspended him from playing cricket for six months on disciplinary grounds, but that did not stop him from reaching out to the police the very next day. He had a complaint filed with the Mirpur police the very next day and an arrest was also made soon after. Due to the suspension, Sakib was unable to participate in any international leagues as well. It became a tough phase for him, but with the support he had from his fan base and the emotional backing of his wife, Sakib came out stronger after serving the suspension.
Umme Ahmed Shishir, with her simplified way of life has indeed been an example for modern day woman and her love affair with Sakib has been far more than just being adorable. We wish the two remain together for years to come and keep giving us relationship goals as they have been doing ever since they got together.
