One of the most adorable couple of B-town, Shahid Kapoor and Mira Rajput Kapoor are now again blessed with a baby. On 5th September evening Mira gave birth to a cute baby boy at the Hinduja Hospital. Her mother, Bela Rajput, Shahid Kapoor’s mother Neelima Azeem and Ishaan Khatter were spotted at the hospital. Now Shahid’s daughter Misha have become an elder sister.
In a recent interview with Rajeev Masand, Shahid shared, “I got lucky. I married Mira. She’s as normal as it gets. We kind of hit it off and decided to get into an arranged marriage. By God’s grace it’s been wonderful, the last three years, and she’s been a huge part of that for me.” He further added, “I’m very simple as a person. And although I might live a very lavish lifestyle, I’m very happy I share my life with someone who has a similar mindset.” Shahid feels that he might be “a little simpler than she is. She likes to be a little extravagant sometimes, which I feel is wonderful.”
Shahid tried to wrap up his work commitments so that he can take paternity leave now. Speaking about the same, he earlier said in an interview, "During Misha's birth [in 2016], I took a couple of months off. This time too, I was negotiating to take a month-long break, but things didn't work out. I will get only a week off from work. It is too short a duration, but such are the circumstances." He further said, "I am self-employed, so I think I have more freedom [to take leaves as per my convenience]. If I don't want to work for a certain period, I can do that. Having said that, life is all about finding the right balance."
Sharing his excitement of becoming a father again, Shahid expressed in a throwback interview, “Having a child is the most amazing feeling. And we are fortunate that we are having a second one so soon, so [I am] feeling happy and blessed about that. Family is always a big reason to work even harder. When you come back home to your family [after work], it’s a great feeling.” He further added, “Now, we will have two to deal with so that’s an added responsibility. Till now, we have been parents to only one child but from hereon, it will be about balancing [time and effort]. Mira and I are very excited to discover that journey.”
In a recent interview, Mira shared how her husband Shahid has been the constant pillar of support during her pregnancy. She was quoted as saying, “Shahid is an extremely loving and supportive husband. It comes naturally to him. The smallest things he does make me smile and feel so loved, like when I wake him up in the middle of the night with a foot cramp and he soothes it. Or how hands-on he is with Misha and has really made sure she doesn’t feel the lack of my attention and presence, especially in these last few weeks where I can’t pick her up or play very much with her. It’s everything put together. I couldn’t have asked for a better partner to walk beside me through this journey.”
Shahid and Mira bought a new house which is an estimated 8625 square foot duplex apartment in Worli, Mumbai. Here’s what Shahid has to say about the same, “It’s true that I have looked at a new house and most probably, I will shift in by the end of next year. I need a bigger house now as my current place has just two bedrooms and very soon, Mira and I will have two kids, so I need to move into a bigger house.”
