A simple Delhi-based girl gets married to the man of every girl’s dream. Sounds quite like a fairytale, no? But to give you all a reality check as the weekend is about to just knock our doors, as much as you might have guessed, we are talking about Bollywood’s one of the most promising and good-looking actors, Shahid Kapoor and his beautiful wifey, Mira Rajput Kapoor.
Ever since Mira and Shahid were blessed with a baby boy, Zain Kapoor on September 05, 2018, we all were yearning to see a picture of Shahid’s little munchkin.
And granting all our wishes, Shahid’s doting wife Mira, who has garnered a huge fan following and a celebrity status, posted the first-ever close-up of her darling son. The very first look at the picture and we can call him Pankaj Kapoor’s grandson due to uncanny resemblance to his dadu. Mira captioned the picture as, “Hello world”. Here’s the pic:
Post that, today we got a partial glimpse of the adorable munchkin, wrapped in the arms of his nanny as three members of the Kapoor family, Mira, Misha and Zain were spotted at the airport.
As soon as the picture was clicked and posted by shutterbugs, Mira became a huge victim of trolls as she had clearly stated in one of her interviews about balancing the responsibility of a child and work, “I love being at home, I love being a mother to my child, I wouldn’t have it any other way. I wouldn’t want to spend one hour a day with my child and rush off to work. Why did I have her? She is not a puppy, you know. I want to be there for her as a mother, seeing her grow up cannot be quantified.” Well, this statement surely got Mira into a lot of trouble and the following trolls are a proof:
Shahid’s ex, Kareena, on the other hand has some totally opposite views from that of Mira.
In an interview, speaking about balancing a child and work she had stated, “Yes, I was on my feet a few days after the delivery, but it’s upsetting to have people judge you for it. No one has the right to comment on how I conduct myself or what sort of a mother I am. Everyone seems to have an opinion. Postpartum depression is not a must, right? It’s whimsical to generalise that every woman goes through that phase, almost making it sound like a norm.
Every pregnancy and every mother’s journey with her child during those nine months and afterwards is different.”
After the birth of Misha, both Shahid and Mira were frank in interviews about having a second child soon. In a throwback interview, Shahid had shared about Mira, “Mira, who is just 22, would prefer to have a second kid soon as well. She wants to flip the norm, get the kids to a certain age and then be free to do what she likes.”
Do you know, Mira had a tough pregnancy with her first child Misha?
Revealing the same, she had once shared, “I had a tough pregnancy, I went to those 5 months of difficult times to bring my daughter in to this world, in fact both of us together (Shahid Kapoor and she). So now I want to spend every moment that I can with her and I think there is a set of responsibilities around my plate and I feel at my age I have a lot more energy, I have my future ahead of me, so I can finish all of my responsibility and I have nothing in my way. I can raise my daughter, I can be a good wife.”
With Misha always garnering the ‘centre of attraction’ space, how will she now deal with a newborn around?
Mira had once shared, “This time I already have a toddler around and keeping a balance between the one you have and the one that’s on its way is very important.
Everything changes, and you don’t want that the one who has been the apple of your eyes for so long and feels that she’s the centre of your world to feel neglected and ignored. That is very important.”
Well, apart from teaching titbits about motherhood at its best, Mira is surely taught us about the importance of ‘speaking right’. What do you guys feel?
