Actor Shahid Kapoor on Friday announced that he and his wife Mira Rajput are expecting their second child.
The couple took an innovative route to announce Mira's pregnancy with an Instagram picture of their first-born, daughter Misha, lying beside a drawing of balloons with 'Big Sister' written along with it.
Shahid Kapoor and Mira Rajput, who have a 12-year age gap, tied the knot in New Delhi on 7 July 2015. They welcomed their first baby in August 2016.
The actor, who has proved his versatility in Hindi cinema with roles in films like Jab We Met (2007), Kaminey (2009), Udta Punjab (2016) and Padmaavat (2018), has been a doting dad to Misha. And Rajput, who is from Delhi, has been devoted to bringing up their daughter.
At an event last year, Mira Rajput had said her child wasn't a 'puppy' to be left alone at home.
She had said: "I love being at home, I love being a mother to my child. 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; I want to be there for her as a mother."
This comment earned her the wrath of several working mothers on social media.
But Shahid Kapoor defended his wife saying it is their choice as a couple that one will work while the other takes care of their child.
