Its a GIRL! Shahid Kapoor and wife Mira Rajput became proud parents to their first child, a baby girl on Friday. The girl was born at the Hinduja hospital in Khar around eight in the evening. Both mother and child are said to be doing well and in a healthy condition. Shahid himself took to Twitter to confirm the happy news.
Mira was admitted to the hospital on August 24 ahead of her delivery to the Hinduja Healthcare Surgical Hospital in suburban Khar. Earlier the child was expected to be born sometime around mid-September. A hospital source said the delivery was normal and the mother as well as the child were doing fine.
Sources also suggest that both the mother and daughter will be discharged within a couple of days. Shahid, who has been around his wife all through and taking special care about her delivery, is no doubt a happy father now.
Mira had been spotted with a baby bump at the Lakme Fashion Week in Mumbai in April, while Shahid revealed during the trailer launch of “Udta Punjab” that he was going to become a father. The couple had tied the knot in July last year. It was an arranged marriage.
Needless to say the news has brought immense cheer to the entire Kapoor family too ever since the news broke. Shahid had few days ago shared an adorable picture with Mira.

She has arrived and words fall short to express our happiness. Thank you for all your wishes.
