Expectant mother Mira Rajput and her husband Shahid Kapoor celebrated her pregnancy with a baby shower on Saturday. Mira was beautiful in a frilly, polka dot dress with an empire waist and embroidered detail, while Shahid was dapper in a blue floral shirt. Friends and close family members were in attendance at the Mumbai shower, including Jhanvi Kapoor and Kunal Rawal. But there weren’t too many film industry types at the shower – it was strictly a family affair, planned carefully by Mira’s husband Shahid. He’s clearly wanted to make the day special for Mira, and in the pics it’s clear that the yellow theme of the decor matches the beautiful lemon cake at the shower. In one of the pics, Mira is feeding a piece of cake to Shahid, in a gesture too cute for words!
The couple also announced the arrival of their new baby in the cutest way on Instagram, with a pic of their daughter Misha lying on a chalkboard with the words “Big Sister” (dotted with hearts) and chalk balloons scrawled across it. They managed to catch Misha mid-giggle, and it looks like she’s had some fun trying to smudge the drawing a little – which makes it even cuter! We hope she’ll be just as happy to meet her new sibling! Right now Misha is only one year old, so they’ll be very close in age and will grow up together.
Mira and Shahid have celebrated their third wedding anniversary recently, and it looks like the couple is as happy as ever. They recently also were caught stepping out for a dinner date, with Mira in a beautiful black dress and Shahid dressed more casually in a hoodie. He’ll be taking a paternity break when their baby is due in October, but for now he’s working on a movie with Tara Sutaria based on a remake of Arjun Reddy. Shooting for his next film Batti Gul Meter Chalu just wrapped up, so we’ll be able to catch him on the silver screen in September. There were some issues with shooting the film, but it’s all wrapped up now, and we’re just waiting for the poster!
But back to the baby shower: the one question everyone wants to know is, is Mira having a boy or a girl? Apparently she’s opted to leave it a surprise. In response to this question on social media, she’s replied, “Don’t know and doesn’t matter!” We think it’s great that Mira is excited no matter what, and that both she and Shahid are such adoring parents. The best picture from the shower is the one where Shahid is helping Mira cut the cake – they are cutting it together, with his hand over hers, and look like newlyweds in love. A fun cake topper cheekily says “Happy Pushing,” and while that part might not be so happy, we’re happy for this cute couple and wish all the best for their newest family member!
