Celebrity couple Shahid Kapoor and Mira Rajput welcomed a baby boy last night. Mira delivered her second child at Hinduja Hospital in Mumbai. Her mother Bela Rajput, Shahid's mother Neelima Azim, and his brother Ishaan Khatter paid a visit to the hospital to meet the new born.
Shahid and Mira are already the proud parents of a daughter whom they have named Misha. She was born on August 26, 2016 and she they recently celebrated her 2nd birthday. The couple tied knot in July 2015 in an arranged set up.
Earlier this year, Shahid and Mira had announced that they are expecting a second child via an Instagram post. They had posted a beautiful picture of Baby Misha and wrote 'Big Sister'. Shahid is on paternity leave since last few days in order to take care of her wife and to welcome the new baby. He wrapped up his work by the month of July and refused to step out of Mumbai for promotion of his upcoming film 'Batti Gul Meter Chaalu'. The makers of the film also supported his decision and therefore decided to promote the film within Mumbai in the month of August.
Talking about the same, he said, "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."
Family plays an important part in Shahid's life. While talking to a leading daily, he once said, "Of course! Having a child is the most amazing feeling. And we are fortunate that we are having a second one so soon, so [I am] feel 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."
Shahid has also bought a new house in Worli worth Rs 56 crore. He will apparently move in there as his family is getting bigger now.
We congratulate the couple for their new beginning!
