Mira Rajput and husband Shahid Kapoor are celebrating not just the arrival of their second child in the family, but also the birthday of the Bollywood’s newest Mom, who turns 24 today.
Mira and Shahid welcome the arrival of their second child on Wednesday. Among those who visited them in hospital were close family members including Ishaan Khattar, Neelima Azim and Pankaj Kapur. Also joining Mira in Mumbai’s Hinduja Hospital was her mother, who had reportedly flown in from Delhi.
Shahid’s father, Pankaj Kapur, told Republic TV that with the arrival of the new baby his son’s family was now complete. He said, “I am very delighted that a new bundle of joy has come to our house. A baby being born in any house is a matter of sheer joy and excitement. Similarly, it is a moment of joy for our family and as the grandfather of the newborn, I am delighted and very proud of my family. I wish Shahid and Mira all the very best and many congratulations.”
Kapur told Mumbai Mirror, “It’s the most delightful thing that can happen to any family. Shahid’s family is now complete. God bless all of them. We are thrilled about the new arrival.”
Meanwhile, name suggestions for the baby have continued to pour in for Shahid Kapoor and Mira Rajput. Journalist Aaqib Raza Khan wondered about the possible names for the couple’s new baby. He wrote, “#MiraRajput & Shahid Kapoor just had a #BabyBoy today. They named their girl Misha. What will they call him? Shami? Shaput? Mikoor? Mihid? RaHid?” Journalist Imaan Sheikh too tweeted along the same lines, “shahid and mira just had a son. so what’s misha’s brother going to be called? mahid? it’s for real a muslim/arabic name lol.”
Shahid is Kapur’s son from his first wife, Neelima Azim. Pankaj Kapur later married Supriya Pathak, from whom he has two children. Ishaan is Neelima’s son from her second husband. But despite Pankaj Kapoor divorcing Neelima Azim, Shahid has been very close to his father.
