Congratulations are in order for Shahid Kapoor and Mira Rajput! The couple welcomed their second bundle of joy, a baby boy, at the Hinduja Hospital earlier today. Shahid and Mira are already parents to a two-year-old daughter, Misha.
Mira recently revealed in an interview that Misha was super-excited about being a big sister. “Being able to bring a life into this world, feel it grow inside, and being able to connect with the baby before it has actually even arrived is surreal. And this time it’s been so interesting to see how Misha has been through the entire process. She knows there is a baby inside and she says, ‘Hi Baby!’ every day to my tummy,” the 23-year-old had said.
Last year, Shahid had revealed in an interview that Mira was keen on adding to the brood at the earliest. “She wants to flip the norm, get the kids to a certain age and then be free to do what she likes,” he had said.
Incidentally, it was during Mira’s first pregnancy that the couple fell in love. The two had an arranged marriage, and Shahid revealed at the India Today Woman Summit 2017 that he grew closer to his wife when she was expecting their daughter, Misha.
It was an empathetic pregnancy for Shahid; even though it was his wife who was in labour, he felt it too. “When she was in labour, I held my breath. At one point, I got dizzy and she whacked me and said, ‘Why are you getting dizzy? I’m doing all the work here,” he had said at the event.
On the work front, Shahid will be seen next on the big screen in Shree Narayan Singh’s Batti Gul Meter Chalu. The film, which also stars Shraddha Kapoor, Divyendu Sharma and Yami Gautam, revolves around the issue of power shortage and huge electricity bills. It is slated to release on September 21.
